After more than 20-plus years under the same
administration, central football has gotten a new
executive. On Wednesday night, at the zone s Annual
General Meeting (AGM) and Election of Officers at
Woodford Lodge, Chaguanas, businessman
Shymdeo Gosine was elected unopposed as pres-
ident of the Central Football Association (CFA) for
a four-year term.
He has replaced long-serving president Bryan
Layne, who had made it quite clear that he was not
seeking re-election to office. In fact, no member of
the previous executive under Layne s leadership con-
tested the elections, which means that Gosine and
his entire slate were voted in without a challenge.
Apart from Gosine, Wendell Collymore, of Central
Soccerworld, has now become the new first vice
president of the CFA, while Allan Logan, of Perse-
verance United, is the second vice president. Assistant
secretary of administration is Jimmy Henry, of Harlem
Strikers, and David Ramkhelawan, of the Referees
Association, is the assistant secretary of operations.
The two ordinary members are Anthony Job, of
Leeds FC, and Raymond Superville, who is a livewire
in the Chrisee Trace, Enterprise, area and who usually
organises major tournaments. The general secretary,
it is understood, will be chosen sometime this week
on the advise of the new president.
Layne and other members of the previous executive
were at the venue to hand over the reigns of power.
After the election, Gosine immediately hit the ground
running by saying an official office at the Hugo
Francis Recreation Ground at Woodford Lodge Ground
will be constructed and the facility will become the
official headquarters of the Central zone.
The new leader of the Central zone also said he
has already held talks with the Mayor of Chaguanas
about constructing a facility and they will have further
discussions on it soon. Meanwhile, Gosine said he
has also immediately commissioned a website to be
up and running for central zone football and it will
be completed by no later than next week.
Gosine, who is the managing director of Harlem
Strikers, explained that he did not want to be too
hasty and will have to get information on a number
of matters before he can go forward. "I am happy
that there is finally a change in central football, but
my biggest concern is finding out where the CFA is
in terms of the books, in terms of how much money
is left in the accounts etc and what do I have to work
with," Gosine explained.
The new CFA boss has already embarked on a
fact-finding mission, in which a database of all the
stakeholders will be done, so that the association
can work on making progress.
"This is critical for the association to move on.
We must get a database on all the referees, coaches,
the players etc and find out what is needed and how
to go about introducing and implementing
programmes to help them and the area they
are in, which will eventually assist the clubs,
the league and the sport," Gosine explained.
Gosine, who has been a major critic of
the prize structure in Central football also
made it clear that this will definitely be
changed for the coming season.
In fact, the new CFA boss has said that
the team that won the FA Cup will benefit
from an immediate increase in the prize
money although the competition has already
"I have already asked the sponsor of that
tournament to increase the winning prize
from $3,000 to $10, 000 and Nal Ramsingh,
has agreed to do so," Gosine.
The second prize for the FA Cup has also
been increased from $2,000 to $5,000 and
the clubs will receive this at a prize-giving
ceremony set for New Year s Day.
Gosine said he will open the doors of the
CFA to anyone with suggestions that will
be helpful to the better running of the organ-
isation and he gave the assurance that indi-
viduals appointed to conduct the work of
the CFA will be hired based on their qual-
ifications and experience.
