Jonson Clarke-Harris representing Jamaica

Striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has been called up by Jamaica for a forthcoming friendly in Catalonia.

Peterborough United striker Jonson Clarke-Harris has been named in Paul Hall’s 20-man Jamaica squad for an international friendly on 25th May against Catalonia.

The game takes place in Girona, Spain with a 12.45pm kick-off (ET) and there are a number of English-based players in the squad including Wigan Athletic’s Jordan Cousins, Swansea City’s Joel Latibeaudiere, Huddersfield Town’s Rolando Aarons and Queens Park Rangers keeper Dillon Barnes.

It is the first time that Clarke-Harris has been selected by the Reggae Boys for a fixture and he is excited by the opportunity. “I am over the moon. I can’t wait! It will be a great feeling to put on the Jamaica shirt and hopefully I can still in and around it moving forward.

“I have been to Jamaica twice, but it is somewhere that I would love to settle when my football career is over. It is a pleasure to be called up. My family are delighted, I have family over there and my Nan is from Jamaica, although she lives in this country now. I will go out there and do my best,” Clarke-Harris said.
