Can Bou Play Foundation (CBP) is extremely proud of Anfernee Bascombe for obtaining a full scholarship to Ranger College in Texas for the academic year starting later in 2020. 

Bascombe's talent was first spotted by founder Julius James at Unveil's Footy Fest and selected as the Footy Fest Select to play in the Creamery Novelties Forty5 Charity Cup on 15 December 2019. After a strong performance alongside James at the heart of the Can Bou Play United defence in the Cup, he has gone on to distinguish himself at the Can Bou Play Pre-Season Camp in January 2020 and CBP believes that his scholarship is just desserts for all his hard work.

"Bascombe is a fine young man and we were happy to have him at the Charity Cup," said James. 

"At the Cup, he impressed me with his poise and calmness under the circumstances where we played against a lot of top players. He showed signs of being a very good player and from what I've heard about him from the other guys who have been working with him at the Camps, he is a hard worker and a very humble kid."

The former Trinity College Moka student is extremely proud of his achievements and being welcomed into the Can Bou Play network. 

"Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it!" said a happy Bascombe. "I'm really thankful for my achievement and as I step into another factor of my life, I will continue for my dreams and aspirations."

It's really been a great experience working alongside some great role models. It's always a positive vibe and I'm so happy for meeting and playing alongside the Can Bou Play family and becoming a member."


Having personally walked the path that Bascombe is now on after earning a scholarship to attend the University of Connecticut, James is now keen to see how he adapts to the new journey and what lessons he may be able to bring back with him.


"I am proud of him at having earned a full scholarship and look forward to seeing more of him in the future," said James.


"We want to see what he learns and what he is going to bring back. We are also happy to be connected with him because these are the kind of young men that we want to push forward; those who are passionate in their career and passionate about giving back."
