I hope to bring a lot of goals, playing good football and getting the right results.”Harriott, 25, is an exciting attacking player who recently caught the eye in Reading’s third-round F.A. Cup tie against English Premier League giants Manchester United. He is eligible to play for Guyana through his maternal grandparents.“To have somebody of Callum’s calibre involved in the international set-up is a massive boost for Guyana, the players and the staff,” said Golden Jaguars head coach Michael Johnson. “This player comes highly recommended from Reading and has the ability to go past opponents and score goals.”The charismatic winger started his career at Charlton Athletic before joining Championship side Reading in 2016.The Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF) Technical Director Ian Greenwood, related that “Callum brings a tremendous attacking threat and a new dimension in the final third, but what stands out the most are his character and desire to represent Guyana.”Faizal Khan, the GFF Head of Recruitment said, “Callum is the type of player that can take and keep the Guyana national men’s team at the very top of regional international football.Knowing Callum’s ability and personality, I foresee him becoming a fans’ favourite here in Guyana.”Kick-off time is 18:30hrs.
