Seasoned English Premier League Player, Cameron Jerome To Represent Grenada 

PR – The Grenada Football Association (GFA) is pleased to announce  that English-born Grenadian, Cameron Jerome has agreed to represent Grenada in international  football. Grenada FA President Marlon Glean met with the former Norwich City and Birmingham  City forward in London in September where he committed to establishing ties with Grenada’s  football. 

Jerome was born in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire to Grenadian parents. He signed his first  professional contract with Cardiff City in the summer of 2004 and proved his competence by  scoring 20 goals in the 2005-2006 season. This did not go unnoticed as he was then signed by  Premier League outfit, Birmingham City for a fee of £3 million. After spending five years at St. Andrew’s, Jerome then moved to Stoke City in August 2011 for a reported fee of around £4  million. 

A change in management at Stoke City saw Jerome being loaned out to Crystal Palace and  subsequently transferred to Norwich City on a permanent move where he made 138  appearances, helping them to regain their Premier League status. One of his memorable  contributions is scoring the opening goal against Middlesbrough at Wembley in the  Championship play-off final. He is currently with Luton Town in the English Championship  Division, who were last season play-off semi-finalists. 

Jerome who is excited to represent Grenada commented, “I met with the President of the  Grenada FA, Marlon Glean in September and I was satisfied with the things that I heard about his  vision and plans for football in Grenada. I have close ties to Grenada and I’d be delighted to help  out in any way possible. I’m still fit, playing and enjoying my football and once I’m able to make  a valuable contribution, then, of course, I’m willing to be a part of it,” Jerome said.

GFA President Glean was equally excited about Cameron potentially lining up for the Spice Boys. 

“We had the discussion with Cameron about him finally coming on board in an official capacity.  We believe he will be a great asset to our country with all his years of experience playing at the  top level of English football. He’s been involved at a high level of the game on a consistent basis  for over seventeen years and surely we can find a place for him in the national team as we embark  on a journey to achieve greater things in the region and beyond,”Glean stated.
