Aaron Pierre earns first international call-up

2 September 2015

Blues star Aaron Pierre is set to represent Grenada in two 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against Haiti.

The defender qualifies for the Caribbean island through his parents and flew out from the UK on Tuesday to link up with his team-mates ahead of the first leg, which takes place on Friday.

The return fixture takes place on Wednesday and Pierre will fly home immediately after the match, ensuring his availability for Wanderers’ Sky Bet League 2 fixture against Plymouth Argyle on Saturday 12th September. He will, however, miss the Chairboys’ clash with Hartlepool United on Saturday 5th September.

Blues boss Gareth Ainsworth said: “It’s a tremendous honour for any player to represent their country and Aaron has worked extremely hard to deserve this opportunity.

“Although it will be a big blow for us to lose him from our game against Hartlepool, we’ll be wishing him every success and I’m sure he’ll be able to carry his excellent form on to the international stage.”

Aaron follows in the footsteps of former Wycombe defender Leon Johnson, who played for Grenada in 2011, and will be joined in the squad by another ex-Wanderer, York City full-back Anthony Straker.
