BILLERICAY Town winger Ricky Modeste has won a maiden international call-up with Grenada.

The 29-year-old has been in flying form for Billericay in recent weeks, and his country has now come calling ahead of Saturday’s friendly against Trinidad & Tobago.

Modeste said on Twitter “On the plane to Grenada for the match against Trinidad on Saturday. Buzzing to get the call up!”

Modeste won a penalty in Sunday’s FA Cup first round draw against Leatherhead.

And head coach Harry Wheeler was full of praise for the winger.

“They called him up a few weeks ago and spoke to him about it,” said Wheeler.

“He has never had involvement with Grenada before but the exposure he has got with Billericay has helped him.

"I wish him well."

Modeste will return early next week in time for Town’s FA Cup replay.
