Cayman Athletic Sports Club forward Kareem Foster is the first recipient of the Cayman Sports Buzz Footballer of the Week presented by Futbolista World.

Foster, 16, is in his first Cayman Premier League season with Cayman Athletic men’s team. After coming off the bench in his debut, Foster has secured a spot in the starting 11. It seems that place has been solidified with his performance against Roma United on 20 November.

After setting up an earlier goal in his team’s 5-1 win, Foster scored his first senior goal in the 73rd and celebrated in style. (see video below) A minute later, he found the back of the net again.

“I was excited. I just wanted to know that I scored and contributed to my team winning the game. I wanted to be a main contributing factor,” he said about the goals.

After the second goal, Foster ran into the stands to kiss and hug his mother, Valerie, who is a constant presence at her son’s games and training sessions.

“I just wanted to show she’s the reason why I’m doing all this and I just want to give back and pay her back with my football and show her what she did,” Foster said.

The youngster developed a reputation of terrorizing defenders in youth leagues and now that he’s playing against more seasoned competition, he’s picked up where he left off.

“Kareem is such an outstanding football talent. He’s the sort of player who embodies what we thought of when deciding to launch his award,” said Cayman Sports Buzz editor, Ben Meade.

Foster was presented with a certificate, a Futbolista World sports shirt, and a gift certificate to be used toward new gear at Futbolista World. He has also been entered into a draw to win an additional prize from Futbolista World at the end of the season.
