Look Loy refuses to sign non-disclosure agreement
...To proceed with High Court action against TTFA president


THERE are two ways in which TT Super League president Keith Look Loy or other Football Association (TTFA) board members may access information to the controversial TTFA “home of football” project in Couva, which is currently under construction.

Look Loy will either have to sign a non-disclosure agreement put out by TTFA president David John-Williams’ attorney – something he refuses to do – or he will have no choice but to take legal action to force John-Williams to release details to the board.

Look Loy said since he has no intention of signing the document, he is left with little choice but to pursue the matter through the courts, although it will inevitably add to the mounting debt the association faces through various lawsuits and arrears.

According to information obtained by Newsday, John-Williams’ attorney Annand Misir recently sent Look Loy and his attorney a non-disclosure agreement, which, if he signed, would effectively prevent them from disclosing the financial and contractual details on the FIFA-funded project to the board or make it public.

Last Wednesday, Look Loy wrote to the TTFA board by e-mail advising them of his continued inability to access information on the project, as well as John-Williams’ attempts to keep the matter private by means of the non-disclosure agreement, which he scanned and copied to the e-mail.

In the e-mail, Look Loy sought to remind the board members of the numerous attempts made, since December 26, 2017
, to acquire information on the project from both John-Williams and TTFA general secretary Justin Latapy-George.

Look Loy said after several unsuccessful attempts, he hired attorney Matthew Gayle, who wrote to John-Williams in July, telling him of a final request for information before the commencement of legal proceedings.

“This failed to convince the TTFA president that said documents should be made available,” Look Loy told the board.

On August 27, Gayle, on behalf of Look Loy, filed an application for leave to claim for judicial review in the High Court, which Look Loy said was done in the “interest of transparency and accountability within the association, and to ensure the right of TTFA board members – the governors of the association ­– to information, is respected.

“Following on this, and in the effort to ensure TTFA does not have yet another legal matter on which to spend legal fees, as well as to reduce conflict within the association, I made, through Mr Gayle, more than one unsuccessful attempt to secure access to the requested information without final intervention of the High Court.

“Finally, the legal representative of TTFA, Annand Misir, wrote to my legal representative offering to make documents available today (October 3) at 10 am.”

Look Loy said that on Tuesday, the day before, Misir wrote to Gayle in an attempt to impose a non-disclosure agreement “that seeks to limit and qualify my right – as a TTFA board member – to access and to report on said documentation to my constituency (TTSL membership) and to the TTFA general membership.”

Look Loy continued: “The TTFA board has never discussed and/or approved any contract for project works by any company and/or service provider in Couva. Indeed, in TT Super League all commercial agreements are discussed and agreed by the entire membership – not just the board – in the effort to ensure transparency and to eliminate the possibility of corruption, e.g. the League’s recent signing of a broadcast contract with TTEN TV.”

He added that the TTFA board never discussed or agreed any legal course of action in response to his High Court application. “The TTFA president and/or Mr Misir does not have sole authority to decide on same and should be required to table this matter before the board membership.”

The president’s refusal to present the requested documents.

Look Loy said, “contradicts his assurance to the 2017 TTFA Annual General Meeting that said documents are available in the TTFA office.”

The TTFA board, he said, “has never discussed and/or agreed the imposition of a non-disclosure agreement on board members regarding access to any TTFA documents. The president, and/or Mr Misir, does not have authority to impose same, which in any event would be unconstitutional and an illegal limitation of member representative rights and responsibility to report to their membership. I stand by my commitment to transparency and accountability in TTFA.

I refuse to sign any non-disclosure agreement,” Look Loy wrote.

He concluded by signalling his intention to go ahead with legal action in the High Court, “unless the TTFA board ensures the TTFA president makes all the requested documents available to me – and by definition, to all TTFA board members.”

Ray Roberts: A blistering shot like no other
Ex-TT striker laid to rest

NEWSDAY Friday 28 September 2018

FONDLY remembered for his quiet and unassuming personality, former national striker Raymond Roberts was equally memorialised for his reputation on the pitch as “explosive” in front of the goal.

Roberts was laid to rest yesterday following a funeral service at the Los Bajos RC Church, located in his home town Palo Seco.

He died last Friday at the age of 68 following a lengthy bout with cancer. He left to mourn his wife and two daughters.

Roberts’ contributions to his club, south Trinidad and the nation itself, are something to cherish, said former TT football team coach Edgar Vidale, who trained him at all stages.

And, according to Vidale, there was one particular attribute about Roberts that stood him out from any other footballer that he ever managed, which was “his shot, his powerful and accurate shot.”

“One of his assets as a footballer, one that brought him on to the national team, was his powerful kicking,” said Vidale.

“I’ve never seen anybody since then or even before, there may be very few, if any at all, who had that ability to shoot that ball so powerfully.”

In reminiscing on Roberts’ footballing career, Vidale recounted a series of incidents that stood out to him, which brought Roberts into football prominence.

During the years of the Inter League – a championship featuring the top teams from the various zonal competitions across the country – zones and teams from the north were dominant.

“It happened on two successive weekends. The SFL, which was the league we played in down here, of which I was coach of, played the Port of Spain League in the final which would determine the winner of the Inter League that year and it would have taken away the supremacy of the north.”

As Vidale recalled, with the scores locked at 1-1, he introduced Roberts onto the field with 20 minutes remaining in the match.

“In fact, Ray Roberts got to be known as the ‘20-Minute Wonder Boy’,” Vidale said.

“The people there didn’t really know him. So he hurried onto the field without a warm-up or anything. And this was about 30 yards from the goal and there was (national) goalkeeper in goal, Gerald Figeroux.”

“Because of his power, whenever he had a free kick, he was asked to hit it to the neck or the face of the wall and I don’t think anyone was so stupid to put their head on a ball like that.

“For this particular evening, he did exactly that. And I always said to myself, like in the bible, like the miracle of Moses parting the sea, the wall just moved. Because anyone putting their head on that ball ending up in the hospital. And that sank into the...the goalkeeper didn’t even know what happened. So with that, we won the game 2-1.”

One week later at the same venue, the Queen’s Park Oval in St Clair, according to Vidale, a very similar incident occurred.

“Well, the first was an indirect free kick. This was a direct. And again, I did the same thing. And now the players knew. So it made it worse because they’re not going to put themselves in the path, and he repeated it. He repeated it!”

Vidale recalled the height of the north-south rivalry and Roberts’ game-changing influence.

“As far as I’m concerned, Ray Roberts helped take away the supremacy of the north on those two occasions.”

But there was one more incident, which left a lasting impression on the veteran coach.

“No one else remembers this... It was a game against Suriname.”

The match determined the team, either Suriname or TT, which would advance to Haiti for the final round of CONCACAF qualifiers for the 1974 FIFA World Cup in West Germany.

“The situation was that Suriname was so confident that they would’ve been the team going that they decided to play both their matches in Trinidad because they were repairing their main stadium. So they came here and in the first game in the Oval (our home match), we beat them 2-1,” said Vidale.

The second match was played two nights later at Skinner Park, San Fernando, which was recognised as Suriname’s home leg.

“Almost the same thing happened, but 15 minutes before the end of the game. I got the opportunity to put him in. They were playing better than us with a powerful midfield and I gave him the same instructions. And this was no free kick. (I told him) ‘Any time you get free (space) anywhere 30 yards away, shoot to goal.’ Because apart from the power, he was one of the most accurate kickers of the ball in those times… Even now.

“Anyhow, sometimes these things make you a genius and sometimes it doesn’t happen and it makes you a moron.

“So, it happened. Just as he went on to the field, he got one (shot) just on the 18 yard and he really exploded. There had a fellah named Lilac in goal for Suriname – he missed it and that ball was so powerfully hit, when it hit the crossbar, it came back out to Steve David, who was just standing near to Roberts.

“He (David) took it on his thigh and before it hit the ground, he let go a volley when Lilac didn’t even recover from the dive yet. And that, that caused us to go to Haiti. But it was not David’s shot. It was Roberts shot that gave David the opportunity to do that.”

Three weeks before his first leg goal against Suriname, Roberts scored his first TT goal in a 11-1 win over Antigua and Barbuda.

Roberts went on to feature in the final round of qualifiers for the 1974 World Cup. He played for most of the infamous match against Haiti in 1973 in which TT were disallowed as many as five goals, a couple of which he helped build up. Haiti won that game 2-1.

Amm.. Walter, the man name is Azaad Mohammed-Khan, not Azard Khan. On another note, this to me is a big step down, not only in the abilities and competence of a general secretary. Azaad well and truly covered up and/or ignored the bobol of the SSFL, especially in the Central Zone. And one word for Ewing Davis - arrogant! He doesn't answer to anyone. Let's see how this unfolds.

Everyone makes mistakes... and at least Alvin is consistent with it. Have never read one of his columns without at least two athletes' names spelt incorrectly. A simple but desperate appeal to the Guardian editors to correct Alvin's mistakes. The only problem is that Guardian editors are much more familiar with local cricketers' names than footballers (evidently).
And, with all due respect to him, none of his columns seem to include any real critical analysis.
In 2015, almost all mainstream newspapers cater for an international audience...Inexcusable, especially as Google is right at the fingertips.

At the end, Sheldon worked tirelessly for the association. Anything that went right, it reflected on Tim Tim. Unfortunately, he remains PoS mayor after the TTFA AGM. sickening.

Basketball board unaware of CBC registration woes


Andrew Gioannetti
Published: Wednesday, March 4, 2015

The National Basketball Federation of T&T’s (NBFTT) failure to pay registration fees for the upcoming CBC Championships happened without the board’s approval or awareness.

This was acknowledged by two board members, yesterday, who, when contacted by the Guardian, said they were unaware that T&T would not be in the competition “until very recently”.

On Tuesday, the NBFTT issued a media release signed by its president Garvin Warwick, who said the federation is “aggressively engaging possible sponsors” to underwrite national-team expenses, development programmes and zonal competitions, “to supplement the NBFTT’s disappointing basketball subvention from the Ministry of Sport”.

This was in response to an article printed in the Sunday Guardian highlighting T&T’s omission from the CBC tournament caused by the NBFTT’s failure to pay registration fees by November 21, last year. T&T’s exclusion has, by default, ruled the country out of contention for a spot in the Centrobasket and other upcoming tournaments.

In the release, Warrick said among the challenges faced by the federation was the Ministry of Sport’s approval of only $900,000 out of its $6.4 million budget submission, more than half of which has to be used to clear debts.

“The submission was for $6.4 million, however, the ministry approved $900,000. Of the $900,000 the federation has to pay approximately $500,000 in outstanding debt which includes substantial arrears with mounting interest to the NIB, operational and prize money to zones since 2012; gratuity payments to staff; other administrative expenses related to 2014 as well as the expenses incurred by sending two national women’s teams to CBC and CAC respectively.”

It continued: “All this mayhem stems from the fact that the current administration inherited a national team that was registered with no budget to execute the trip as well as pay for regular day-to-day expenses. Meanwhile failure to participate after having registered could result in FIBA sanctions, not limited to fines and/or suspension. To compensate, board members accessed their personal funds as well as cut staff completely and opted not to pay any recurrent or outstanding bills in order to prioritise the 2014 CBC and CAC teams pending reimbursement from the ministry’s subvention.

“Since reimbursement from Ministry of Sport (SporTT) has not occurred and outstanding debt from other ministries has not been paid despite aggressive follow up, members could not afford to personally extend their financial resources any further,” Warrick noted.

However, even though the federation’s financial difficulties were acknowledged by those on the board and other stakeholders, they expressed surprise that the NBFTT made a decision not to pay the registration fees without consultation.

Board member and president of the Basketball Coaches Association of T&T (BCATT), Clement Holder, said the topic was never brought up in any meeting of which he was present, or at least he never heard it being discussed.

He said, too, that even upon checking the minutes of past board meetings, the issue was seemingly never raised.

Holder acknowledged that the federation had no money but noted that had the topic been raised back in November and been made public, a potential solution may have been found.

​...VP distances himself

Vice-president of the NBFTT (training, technical and support), Daron Lall, yesterday issued a letter to fellow board members distancing himself from the issue of non-payment of registration fees, saying he was never included in discussions by the board.

In his letter, Lall said he attended all board meetings in September and November, the annual general meeting (AGM) in December and the reconvened meeting in January.

He continued: “Over the past four or five months, the president (Warwick) made a decision to leave me out of elected members meetings, which is unconstitutional and all decisions made from these meetings cannot be legitimate as all elected members were not given the opportunity to attend. Also no reports from these meetings were ever brought (sic) to the board of directors.”

Lall said, the group, of which he was excluded, had been labelled as the “Circle of Trust”.

“I must point out that as a board, we have allowed the general secretary (Claire Mitchell) and the president to act unconstitutionally on many issues and in most cases they have not once tabled a report (sic) of their decisions or accounted to the board for their actions.

“The surprising thing is that T&T’s participation at CBC 2015 was an urgent matter and the elected council or should I say ‘Circle of Trust’ never saw it right to bring it to the board’s attention.

“I call on the board of directors to call for the resignations of the president and the secretary for their consistent violation and disregard of the constitution and for failing to inform the board directors about T&T’s participation at CBC 2015.”

Club Sando maintain Super League lead.
T&T Express Reports.


Club Sando maintained their lead a top Group A of the National Super League thanks to a 4-1 demolition of Phoenix over the weekend.

In other results, Defence Force came from a 2-0 deficit to beat Siparia Spurs 3-2 but are still seven points behind leaders Club Sando.

Siparia took an early lead following second minute strike from Jesse Edwards. Nine minutes later, Edwards doubled his team’s lead before Defence Force pulled one back in the 34th minute thanks to Christopher Durity as the game remained tight heading into the half-time break.

Brandon Fountain then scored for Defence Force in the 60th before Akil Morris gave them the lead in the 67th.

T&T's women's team closed its account at the CAC Games with a 7-0 loss to Colombia in the third and final  group stage match.

Colombia 7 (Katherine Arias 6th, Diana Ospina 16th pen, Iyesha Ollivierre own goal 32nd, Ingrid Vidal 33rd, Katerin Castro 77th, 79th, Hazleydi Rincon 90th+3) v T&T 0

This follows a 1-1 draw with Haiti and a 6-0 loss to Mexico.

Tough, but Mexico and Colombia went to win. Team T&T went for exposure and experience.

I still can't believe that some people are seeing this as a popularity contest and are not looking at the criteria needed for an efficient and. Effective leadership of this a Federation.  People get enamoured by change and the ills of president leadership and simply default to the thinking that what glitters have to be better. Reminds me of the thinking of many in the last government elections.
Look the man K Jack simply mentioned that he is pondering not declaring his candidacy. I think when the time do come for an election of president, transparent criteria should be established- a search committee be appointed, screening should be in place and interviews held prior to an elections.
The idea of competency based leadership ought to be a priority over popularity- a competent leader ought to have the whereabouts to procure various levels of funding- but should not be the so.e criteria- IMO


You can't remember when the consensus was that Dookeran, an economist, couldn't be Prime Minister because he wasn't charismatic enough?

T&T women begin CAC campaign vs Haiti.
T&T Guardian Reports.


T&T’s women football team will face off with Haiti in their opening match of the Central American and Caribbean (CAC) Games at the Estadio Unidad Deportiva Hugo Sanchez in Mexico from 10 am today.

 The T&T team, led by head coach Rajeezh Latchoo, includes only one member of the senior women’s team, second choice goalkeeper Teneisha Palmer. The competition is considered to be an under-21 age group competition, with up to three players born before 1 January 1993 being allowed in the squad.

T&T will meet Mexico in its second Group A match on Wednesday and will close off the group phase against Colombia two days later.

 Group B consists of Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Venezuela and Nicaragua. The top two teams from each group will advance to the semifinals which are carded for November 25, with the final slated for November 27.

“It’s a really good opportunity for our younger players to get the exposure at this tournament. At the moment the Senior Team has the return World Cup qualifier to prepare for and so we felt it would be wise to bring some of the other players to this tournament,” Latchoo told TTFA Media.

“We have the other competitions to prepare for like future youth tournaments as well as the Olympic qualifiers. I think the team now has some very capable players and they will definitely gain from the experience of playing against teams like Mexico, Haiti and Colombia,” he added.

Some of the players selected with past senior team experience include JoMarie Lewis, Natasha St Louis, Candace Edwards, Anastascia Prescott, Taylor Mims, Jonelle Warrick and Patrice Vincent.

This appears to be an unedited press release from the TTFA. The women's tournament is actually an open tournament unlike the men's, which is under-21 (with three exceptions). Lawd.

Looks like no men's football at the CAC for TT this time around.

No, T&T would have had to qualify for the CAC Games via the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, which we didn't even participate in. At the Caribbean Under-20 finals or the final stage of qualifiers for the CONCACAF Championship, T&T finished last in the group stage behind Haiti, Puerto Rico and Curacao in that order.

So I take it the U-20 mens are through to the next CAC games seeing that we are Caribbean Champs?

It's really not very straightforward as tournament formats change. From my understanding, T&T would need to at least compete at the CONCACAF Championship, not the CFU final round, to have a chance of qualifying for the CAC Games. You can also be invited otherwise based on performances if you don't meet the original mark. That is if qualified teams pull out.
In any case, the CAC Games is a quadrennial event and the CONCACAF U-20 Championship happens every two years. So the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 event may actually be the qualifier for the CAC Games in 2018. Who knows how that tournament will run?

Anyway, for example, Cuba and Jamaica (CFU teams) qualified for this year's CAC Games after finishing at the semifinal and quarterfinal stage of the 2013 Concacaf U-13 Championship, respectively. However, a number of Central American teams (almost all in fact) actually qualified via the 2013 Central American Games. Haiti was invited to compete at the CAC Games to replace Colombia, and what I noticed from Haiti is that they were the "best" last placed finisher in the four groups at the Concacaf Championship. 

Hope it makes sense.
