NAHKI WELLS is ready to fly the Premier League flag for the island
Wells scored one of the penalties which took Huddersfield Town into
the top flight for the first time in 45 years – making his home nation
More than 76,000 fans descended on Wembley to watch the play-off
final – more than the population of Wells’ home country.
The striker, who follows in the footsteps of Clyde Best, Shaun
Goater and Kyle Lightbourne in making the top tier of English football,
said: “I can’t underestimate what the country has done for me.
“I genuinely believe I represent my country, trying to put
Bermuda on the map and pave the way for other footballers and athletes.
Bermuda has a big part of my heart and I can’t deny that.
“I am pretty sure everything came to a standstill in Bermuda.
Work will have been cut short and people at the bars would have been
watching and supporting.
“I can’t take away from what Clyde, Shaun and Kyle have
done to pave the way for players like myself.
“What better opportunity to follow what they have done and try
to solidify myself in Premier League history.
“I am excited, over the moon. This is my era and I’ll do
it to the best of my ability.”
