HARRISON, N.J. (May 4, 2016) – New York Red Bulls II forward Junior Flemmings has been named to Jamaica’s 40-man provisional roster for the Copa America Centenario, which will be held across the United States this summer.
Flemmings, a native of Kingston, Jamaica, was last called into Jamaica National Team camp in February 2016. The 20-year-old received his first Jamaican senior team call up in November 2015, and was named to the 18-player match roster for Jamaica’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Panama, but was an unused substitute. Flemmings participated in 2016 Olympic Qualifying with the Jamaica U-23 National Team and represented the Jamaica U-20s at the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Jamaica. He also captained the Jamaica U-17 team at the 2013 CONCACAF U-17 Championship.
With Red Bulls II, the forward has played five games and totaled one goal and two assists. Flemmings became the first NYRB II player to record at least one goal and an assist in a debut against Louisville City FC on April 2, 2016, and received USL Team of the Week honors. The Jamaican signed with NYRB II on March 25, 2016, after playing two seasons in the Red Stripe Premier League, the top-flight league in Jamaica, with Tivoli Gardens FC.
Red Bulls II hits the road to take on Pittsburgh Riverhounds in a playoff rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference Quarterfinals on Saturday, May 7 at 7 p.m. Coverage of the match will be on NewYorkRedBulls.com/Live.
Next week, NYRB II returns home to Red Bull Arena where they will face the Richmond Kickers on Saturday, May 14, at 4 p.m.
