Barbados’ football could have found two saviours – in one week.

new highly-rated technical director, German Reinhard FabischThe island has unveiled its new highly-rated technical director, German Reinhard Fabisch, and at the same time, star striker Paul Ifill, who played in the recent FA Cup final for Millwall against Manchester United, is about to suit up in the blue and gold.

This is welcomed news as Barbados prepare for their first World Cup 2006 qualifier against St Kitts and Nevis at the National Stadium tomorrow at 8 p.m.

The 24-year-old Ifill qualifies due to the fact that his father, Everton, was born in Barbados. He has played over 250 games for Millwall in the English Division 1 and brings immense talent to Barbados’ front line, as was displayed when he banged in four goals in a warm-up match on Wednesday night.

“I will bring a bit of flair and experience to the Barbados team,” said the tall, debonaire forward, who was born in Brighton and joined Millwall at age 17.

Ifill qualifies due to the fact that his father, Everton, was born in Barbados. He has played over 250 games for Millwall in the English Division 1“I have been a striker since I was small, but I’d be happy to play wherever they put me. Everyone is looking forward to Sunday and I’m excited. There’s a good nucleus of players and I hope to add to the package.”

There are still some loose ends to tie up in Fabisch’s four-year contract, but already he is speaking glowingly about what he has seen while watching the team in training. He is due to take office from mid-July.

“The football fraternity here seems to be ready for positive changes and outside influences. I come from a background where development is key and with my input I hope to help develop the game,” the 54-year-old, who is clearly a forthright individual, said.

“I am looking at the overall development. There are many positive factors I have observed and one is the fact that Paul has decided to come here and represent the country after a long season, which culminated when he played in the FA Cup final. He has made the commitment to represent his country and from what I have seen the country needs him.”

The Barbados squad was due to be named late last night and the players will go into camp. The Kittitians are slated to arrive today.
