Major League Soccer announced on Monday a group of 22 players, including two from Trinidad and Tobago who have been invited to participate in the 2018 MLS Caribbean Combine, which will take place from Jan. 9-11 at the Sawgrass Hotel and Suites Sports Complex outside Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
Kathon St Hillaire and Josiah Trimmingham, two recent call ups to the T&T senior team by head coach Dennis Lawrence, are among the group.
Players will compete in front of scouts for three days for the potential to be signed directly by a MLS club during an upcoming transfer window.
The Caribbean Combine will lead into the 2018 adidas MLS Player Combine, which will be held from Jan. 11-17 in Orlando. Both Combines will be followed by the 2018 MLS SuperDraft presented by adidas on Jan. 19 in Philadelphia.
