Shrewsbury Town is delighted to announce that young goalkeeper Xander Parke has been called up to the St Kitts & Nevis senior team for their upcoming Concacaf Nations League Group Phase matches in March!
The 19-year-old goalkeeper will join the camp on Sunday, March 19 for a period of ten days.
St Kitts & Nevis face off against St Martin in Anguilla on Thursday, March 23 before returning home to face Aruba on Monday, March 27.
Parke featured in the CONCACAF Under-20s Championship in Honduras for St Kitts and Nevis in June last year - his first international call-up at any level.
He won Man of the Match in his debut against the United States under-20s.
Speaking on his experience in Honduras for a programme article in December last year, Xander said: “While we were out there the first team were just finishing their Nations League games.
"They were staying in our hotel as well so we got to speak to them quite often, the first-team coaches and the players.
“We have spoken since then as well about me going back – they seem keen to have me back which is a positive.
“I spoke to the first-team goalkeeper a few times. He knew of me. And I’ve spoken to the head coach a lot.
“It would be nice to go back and be in and around the first team. That would be another great experience for me.”
Congratulations on your call-up, Xander!
