The Grenades Football Club will contest Group A of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Club Championships, which is slated to kick off in May at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Trinidad.
The Antiguan club has been grouped with hosts and defending champions Central FC and Cibao out of the Dominican Republic. They face Central FC on May 14 before returning two days later to take on Cibao.
Coach of the Grenades FC and former national striker, Derrick Edwards, said his team will go into the final round with the odds stacked against them.
“I think that we still are the underdogs in this competition because we are playing the first game against the champion team from last year in Central FC. All the players have been retained from the last team in Jamaica, so we just need to get our team on the pitch and start training and I think we should be good going into Trinidad,” he said.
Grenades earned its spot in the finals after winning Group C of the tournament to finish with 7 points, two more than their closest rivals Barcelona Atletico out of the Dominican Republic.
