T&Tís Camara David hired as CFU General Secretary
By Jelani Beckles (T&T Newsday)


THE Caribbean Football Union (CFU) has announced that Camara David has been appointed by the executive committee as the organizationís general secretary, effective February 1, 2020.

David previously served as the general secretary of the T&T Football Association (TTFA) where he was responsible for the technical and administrative operations of the TTFA inclusive of 15 national teams and over 40 employees.

In his role as general secretary, David will act as the chief executive officer of the CFU, leading its daily business and operations.

According to the CFU website, the union's president Randolph Harris said, ďThe appointment of Camara David, a bright, energetic Caribbean national to the position of general secretary of the CFU will allow us to better serve our member associations, strategic partners and the football fans across our region. It also affords us the chance to continue building on the sustainable foundation we set in recent years as we reformed and rebranded the Caribbean Football Union."

David said it is an honour to take up the position. ďIt is a privilege to have been selected to serve the Caribbean Football Union as the general secretary. It is my pleasure to work with the team to continue on the path that the CFU is on, maintaining and strengthening existing relationships and establishing new ones as we look towards greater representation in the 2026 FIFA World Cup."

In addition to football, David is at home in academia as a sports management lecturer at the University of the West Indies (UWI), St Augustine Campus.

Prior to joining the TTFA, David served as the general secretary of the T&T Football Championship and, before that, as the director of competitions and league operations of the Caribbean Womenís Premier League.

David is a graduate of UWI where he did his undergraduate studies in economics and sports management. He also holds an international masters in sport management, law and humanities from CIES, FIFA Master 16th edition.

Once he got the Super League wuk,  it was clear where this was going. Also,  doh forget that Randy Harris was recently serenaded at the Home of Football just before the TTFA election and that CD's unauthorized trip to Barbados as GS in-waiting also positioned him to nab this job.

However, in the abstract, head to head,  Latapy-George is a better candidate. He certainly demonstrated more poise and discipline than Camara did under similar constraints. But,  of course,  this wasn't a head-to-head and there are other variables. Yet,  to a degree,  Harris surprises me. He had a good candidate in his own building. As far as I am aware, his own GS is more than capable.

It wasn't long ago that we were under the impression that the CFU was heading for obscurity. Harris is a figure who  can resuscitate, and has resuscitated, the organization (to a degree). As such,  this is a good look for David.  Perhaps he'll become more applied to substance over form.

This man is a ladder climber boy

His peers from the FIFA Master's 16th generation  would second that emotion. Yet,  if there's a ladder, use it to climb, not for hopscotch. Just beware the climb.

CONGRATULATIONS The Caribbean Football Union (CFU) General Secretary, Camara David poses with his beautiful wife Tamara Thompson for their wedding which took place on Thursday at the Sevilla Golf Course in Couva.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
