Alyssa_Chin (228x300).jpg(CIFA): After eight months of rehabilitation recovering from an injury, 17-year-old Alyssa Chin returned to the Cayman Islands Women's National Program this week. Chin, who attends the Raburn Gap Nacoochee School in Georgia, USA, returns after a long layoff from football. At times during the long road back from injury, she questioned whether she would ever play football again, but as she re-joined her team mates in her first week of training since the injury, it was clear to see she was happy to be back. Chin represented the Cayman Islands at the under 17 level. She was part of the Cayman team that made it to the final round of World Cup qualification back in 2010.

Women's Technical Director Thiago Cunha is delighted to have Alyssa back.

"Alyssa is a very talented player and she will add quality to the team, she will also bring plenty of experience to the group as she has already played in World Cup Qualifiers before," she said.

Alyssa has been taking part in morning and evening sessions as the Cayman Islands under 20 National team prepare for the final group stage of the Caribbean Football Union World Cup Qualification process. The ladies will travel to Santo Domingo in early January to face the Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Haiti.

The Cayman Islands will start their campaign against the hosts Dominican Republic on January 6, 2012 and then face Jamaica on January 8, 2012 before finishing up with a game against Haiti on January 10, 2012.
