Caribbean Football Union President Jack Warner  revealed several decisions in relation to the regional football at the staging of the CFU’s annual Congress in Guadeloupe on the weekend.

The Congress upheld the suspension of the Antigua/Barbuda Football Association from all activities under the aegis of the Union for failing to honour the decision of the CFU Executive Committee regarding an outstanding debt to its former General Secretary, Chet Greene.

It was also revealed that the case of the Dominica FA was put before the Congress and it was agreed that the CFU President should advise the FIFA  at its upcoming Executive Committee meeting in Zurich on March 14, of the true situation of football in Dominica
 
The Congress under Warner’s chairmanship, also unanimously congratulated the President of the Barbados FA Ronald Jones on his political party having won the recently held General Elections in Barbados and for being appointed that country's Minister of Education and Human Resource. The Members urged  Jones not to relinquish the President of the Barbados FA and instructed the CFU President to write to the Barbados PM accordingly advising him of the wishes of the Union.

Best of luck Antigua.....all yuh goh need it....unless of course y'all just offer yuh necks en masse....

Oh boy....himself advising himself....Dominica....see advice to Antigua above....
"...If yuh clothes tear up
Or yuh shoes burst off,
You could still jump up when music play.
Old lady, young baby, everybody could dingolay...
Dingolay, ay, ay, ay ay,
Dingolay ay, ay, ay..."

RIP Shadow....The legend will live on in music...

Hi, where would I find information on the format for the boys youth cup including the teams involved?.  Are those under 17 boys born in 1991?
