Skipper gets international call

Frickley Athletic skipper Jameel Ible is hoping to add another international cap to his collection before the start of next season's EVO-STIK Northern Premier League campaign.

After helping the Blues to a seventh placed finish in the EVO-STIK NPL's top flight, the central defender, pictured, has been called up by St Kitts & Nevis to play in the 2016 Caribbean Cup.

The 22-year-old, who originally arrived on loan from Guiseley for the first three months of the season, could add to the two caps he picked up in friendlies in Andorra and Estonia last year when St Kitts host Suriname on Wednesday 1 June before travelling to Saint Vincent on Tuesday 7 June for another second round qualifier.

St Kitts are in Group 5 with the top two sides who emerge set to go on and play either Jamaica or Haiti in the third round.

The Blues skipper isn't the only player in his national squad with Frickley connections. Former Blues star Jacob Hazel, who switched to Gainsborough Trinity last week after collecting Frickley's golden boot for his 23 goals last term, and another ex-Blues striker, Zeph Thomas, are also in the St Kitts & Nevis squad.
