One of the most versatile soccer players in the country, Lesley St. Fleur, will line-up once again with the premier football club Montego Bay United when the season kicks off in September.
The national team standout in both beach and field soccer will play in the full back, mid-field or forward position this season. The season will start on September 1 for the Montego Bay United Football Club. St. Fleur said it is an honor to play with one of the top squads in Jamaica. According to him, the transitional period has been smooth and has helped him become a better all-around player.
“The games that are played here are very, very competitive than back home,” said St. Fleur. “The level is very high and totally different from that played at home. I’ve learned a lot since coming to play here. It has helped me in a lot of ways, especially when it comes to national play. I think that I am more experienced and that has helped me to read the game much better and that gives me a better advantage.
“I am getting better each and every day, learning new plays and tricks every day, so I am coming along pretty well. Training is coming along good. We are now getting ready and preparing for the league so all the hard work has been done during pre-season.”
The official schedule was not available on the club’s website, but according to St. Fleur, the team will play in a three-day tournament that will kick-off tomorrow in Jamaica. St. Fleur believes that the team will do good in the tournament, allowing the coaching staff to view this year’s talent before the season starts.
St. Fleur is the only Bahamian on the Montego Bay United Football Club. The team is predominantly made up of Jamaicans.
