Aldershot Town midfielder Jermaine Anderson says he would be interested in pursuing international football with Jamaica.

The former Peterborough United man has previously represented England at youth level but has family roots in Trelawny on the Caribbean island.

Asked whether anyone has ever contacted him about possibly representing the Reggae Boyz, Anderson told this website:

“They never have and it’s something my mum always says to me, ‘why don’t you play for Jamaica?’ I’ve never really known who to speak to or get in touch with, but it was always something that I had on my mind from young, because I’m close to my roots.

“I was brought up to know where my family came from. England is where I was born and where the majority of my life is, but there’s roots to our family that go back hundreds of years, so it’s always something I’ve considered, and I would love to do.

“I just haven’t been contacted.”
