When the championships were held here last year, Goal Attack Tamara Samuel received the award.

Allicott has also represented this country at the Under-23 and senior levels.

But it was debutante Delonie Sam, who plays in the Goal Keep/Goal Defence positions, who was adjudged this country’s Most Valuable Player.

Champion team St. Kitts was the Best Attacking Team with 337 goals, as well as the Best Defensive Team, as they only let in 135 goals.

Fourth placed St. Lucia, the Most Disciplined Team, and Anguilla, which finished sixth in the seven nation championships, copped the Most Improved Team award.

Talissa Brown of St. Kitts was named the Championships’ Best Defensive Player and her teammate, Ronelle Morton the Most Accurate Shooter, as she averaged 84 per cent; and Keirish Richardson, also of St. Kitts, was awarded Best Centre Player.

The other Most Valuable Players for the respective teams were: Anguilla – Jackeedah Bryan, Dominica – Curina John, Grenada – Shirlyn Lewis, Nevis – Sasha Liburd, St. Kitts – Talissa Brown, and St. Lucia – Jarmala Augustin. (RT)
