Watford duo called up by Jamaica

First published in Sport by

Watford defenders Adrian Mariappa and Nyron Nosworthy have been called up by Jamaica for their friendly with Guyana on Friday.

Nosworthy has been in the Jamaica squad before back in 2007 but this is a first call-up for Mariappa, who qualifies as both of his mother's parents are from the island.

Mariappa, who will fly out to join Nosworthy in Jamaica today, has enjoyed a superb season and won the Watford Observer Player of the Year Trophy and the Players' Player of the Year crown.

His performances have attracted the interest of Premier League clubs, with Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic both making bids for the 25-year-old in January and newly-promoted Reading are also reportedly interested.

Nosworthy has also had a good campaign following his move from Sunderland, which was made permanent in January.

Nice reward for two hard working players. Finishes off their season nicely with a free trip out to the Caribbean

At least they get some sunshine! Well done to both and I hope they get a game rather than just sit on the bench.

Does that mean AM is worth a few more quid on transfer this summer, now being an international? I jest... Congrats to both they fully deserve recognition at this level.

Congrats to both. Well deserved. Why all the talk as if it is a foregone conclusion that AM will go? Best of luck to him if he does because he has been a good and loyal servant to Watford and an excellent example to the youngsters coming through. However maybe he will look at what has happened to Sordell occasionally sitting on the bench at Bolton, and think that regular first team football is best for him. Of course if the money for the Club as well as for him personally is right, then I thank him for his contribution to the Hornets and wish him every success for his future.
