Vassell Reynolds, coach of reigning daCosta Cup champions Rusea's High School, will be exposing his players to overseas college scouts on Friday in a match against Premier League outfit Montego Bay United at the school's ground, starting at 3:30 p.m.

"The objective for this game is to expose our players to a few overseas-college coaches with the aim to land a scholarship or two," said Reynolds, who also coaches Premier League team Reno.

He said the game will also serve to celebrate Rusea's achieving a successful season and as a fundraiser for the school's sports programme.

Reynolds added that the match will be a celebratory send-off for players leaving, plus expose prospects for next season. He expects an exciting encounter despite the season having ended. He is also confident that some of MoBay United's regular Premier League faces will be on show.

"This is a game that should have come maybe a week or two after the season had ended but various factors, including the weather, would have caused us to push things back a bit," said Reynolds.
