I wouldn't be proud to announce any member of the Williams family as a part of my slate..

Any association to the "Dictator" means corruption... The problem with these interviews is they never probe and put them in uncomfortable situations to answer.

They are prime for selling out, Colm straight up said that finance was his main reason for joining under Wharfe... That means FIFA is ready to pay and control under Wharfe. It has nothing to do with management bc the investment from the private and govt sector is non existent

Kieron Edwards Landslide: EFA president takes over TTFA reins
By Ian Prescott (T&T Express)


KIERON EDWARDS is the new Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president.

Yesterday, Edwards’ Team Progressive won by a landslide (38-19) at the local football association’s election of officers, held at the Home of Football, Couva. There was a 100% turnout of TTFA delegates, accounting for 57 votes.

Also elected were former national cricketer and Secondary Schools football coach Colin Murray, first vice-president; T&T Football Referees Association (TTFRA) president Osmond Downer, second vice-president; and T&T Super League (TTSL) president Jameson Rigues, third vice-president).

Meanwhile, Alicia Austin, Andrew Boodoo, Allan Logan, Ryan Nunes and Shelton Williams completed Edwards’ slate as ordinary members.

Confident going into the poll, Eastern Football Association (EFA) president Edwards promised to work with all TTFA members. “I’m happy. I’m humbled. I’m honoured to be the new president of the TTFA,” said Edwards. “After four years of (the) Normalisation Committee (NC), the members would have given me a bit of confidence with the vote and the number (margin) of the vote. I’m really happy with it and I’m ready to work.”

Defeated candidate Colin Wharfe suggested that some persons may have reneged on their commitment to his Team Transformation slate, but nevertheless accepted the results.

“You get commitments and understandings from individuals and it didn’t pan out. So, they may have changed their minds, I have no idea,” reasoned Wharfe. “But it is their democratic right to do as they wish. They, in the final analysis, made a selection, and we want to honour that selection,” he added.

TTFA delegates shied away from divulging who they voted for, but there were those who were brave enough to comment on the process.

Everton Alfred, the Tobago Football Association (TFA) president, is hoping that the new president lives up to commitments that both election slates had made to Tobago football. “When we met with both camps, we expressed some requirements for Tobago, in terms of getting some more support, technical and financial. So, I expect that it would before coming from either side which would have won,” Alfred revealed.

Meanwhile, former national defender and Central FC owner Brent Sancho believes the process went smoothly. “It’s good to see a young, vibrant person being in charge of the football,” stated Sancho. “So, the hope is that moving forward not just the slate that has won here today moves football forward, but more importantly, the membership move away from the politics that we have had over the last couple of weeks and come together and start to move football forward..”

The former Sports Minster added: “I think it’s a very experienced team. I like the collection of individuals in it. It represents not just people in the (TTFA) membership, but people with different skills-set, that I think the TTFA currently needs. I think its good for democracy in the TTFA... We have come a long way.”

Following a hectic three-month campaign, Edwards will rest today with family, but expects to begin work as soon as tomorrow when he meets with Robert Hadad, who had been appointed by FIFA and charged with running local football for the past four years as chairman of the NC.

“Monday, hit the ground running,” said Edwards. “Meet with the chairman of the former Normalisation Committee and work on the handing over; meet the staff and really start to engage, in terms of what we plan to do from Monday. We want to do a strategic planning exercise and those are the steps within the first weeks,” he intimated.

Edwards hinted that he will learn from past mistakes from the former regime, led by William Wallace, and will honour those that have legitimate contracts with the TTFA. He said the aim is to give the national team all resources they need to aid in qualification for the 2026 FIFA World Cup and will be seeking both government and corporate support.

“When it comes to our senior men’s team, we intend to give coach Angus Eve and the boys all the support to qualify for the next World Cup,” Edwards emphasised, adding, “We will honour contracts that coaches are under. We will work with them. It’s not a situation of moving this one. It’s about giving support to T&T, enhancing what we do, ensuring the correct development and ensuring that we do qualify for tournaments and we do well in the tournaments.”

The new TTFA boss also declared that the status of all TTFA employees—including general secretary Amiel Mohammed, who was appointed under Hadad—will only be determined after perusal by a Financial and Remuneration Committee.

“He (Mohammed) is the general secretary of the TTFA currently and I will work with him until further notice.”

Edwards takes charge of TTFA: Hadad says association debt free apart from FIFA loan
By Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian)


Kieron Edwards has been given the responsibility along with his very experienced Team Progress slate to take T&T football into a new era.

This as Edwards, the Eastern Football Association (EFA) president, was elected as the new president of the TTFA by a vote count of 38-19 over Colin Wharfe and Team Transformation at the Home of Football in Balmain, Couva, on Saturday (April 13).

The voting delegates were required to register their vote, via secret ballot, at the Elective Congress for either one of the two slates – “Slate Edwards” or “Slate Wharfe”.

The appointment of Edwards who will serve as the head of local football for the next four years also brings to an end the tenure of the Robert Hadad-led FIFA-appointed normalisation committee after four years in charge of T&T football after the reign of then-newly elected president William Wallace was swiftly brought to a calamitous end several months into his tenure.

The other members of the new TTFA executive include sports commentator Colin Murray (first vice-president), former FIFA referee Osmond Downer (second vice-president), Jameson Rigues (third vice president) and ordinary members, Ryan Nunes, Andrew Boodhoo, Allan Logan, Alicia Austin, and Shelton Williams.

The other members of Wharfe's slate were Colonel Keston Charles (first vice-president), Renee John-Williams (second vice-president), Huey Cadette (third vice-president), and ordinary members Colm De Freitas, Riaz Ali, Lee Davis, Makan Hislop and Richard Mason.

Speaking following his Team Progress triumph in the election a beaming Edwards said he was happy, humbled and honoured to be the new president of the TTFA.

"After four years of normalisation committee, I think the members would have given me a bit of confidence with the vote and I am ready to work."

Commenting on the work done by his team in the build-up to the election, Edwards said, "Our slate would have done the work and left it in the hands of the membership and they made their decision. So, it was up to the members and they decided to give us the confidence and we are really humbled and honoured by it.

Looking ahead, Edwards said he will be having a relaxing "Sunday" (today) before he gets to work tomorrow (Monday).

He said, "The campaign has been hectic and I intend to hit the ground running on Monday, meet with the NC chairman, work on the handing over and meet with the members of staff to engage with the team."

Edwards said he intends to engage corporate T&T, and the Government in terms of their assistance to football and the assets that belong to the TTFA.

"So, it's going to be a collective approach we intend to deal with and it's one that we have been saying during our campaign as well.

"It's a members-first approach, one of inclusion and partnerships and it will continue during our tenure.

Asked to comment on senior men's coach Angus Eve's squad, Edwards said, "My vision is similar to that of T&T nationals in terms of ensuring that they qualify for the next World Cup not just for football but for T&T because it's a unifying and healing thing.

"We know the power of football throughout the world and we intend to utilise football to leave a positive mark on T&T.

Concerning Eve's position as coach, as well as general secretary of the TTFA, Edwards made it clear that he intends to honour all contracts of those employed currently and assured that coach Eve will be given all the support to qualify the team for the next World Cup.

He added, "It's not a situation of moving people, it's about giving the support for T&T and enhancing what we do and ensuring that we have the correct development and ensuring that we do qualify for tournaments and also that we do well in these tournaments.

Edwards was also full of praise for the Robert Hadad-led normalisation committee, saying, "The NC played a crucial role in T&T and we need to understand that and we need to acknowledge the service that they would have given to T&T football.

"It's not easy to give four years of your time to an organisation that you may not have wanted to in the initial stage, meaning that you didn't put yourself forward for the member to elect you.

"So, you first have to tip your hat to the NC and the chairman for the work that they would have done.

"We all have different views in terms of how we operate but in terms of the service given, you have to give credit to them for that.

"They would have done a tremendous job on consolidating our debt and having it there in one place now through FIFA and we have to give respect to that and you have to give to the NC as well and the team that would have worked on that and we now have the ability to lay a new foundation for football."

Beaten candidate and Team Transformation head, Colin Wharfe praised the voting process saying it was excellent.

However, said he was expecting somewhat of a different outcome.

He explained," You get commitment and understanding from individuals and it didn't pan out that way. So they may have changed their minds, I have no idea, but it is their democratic right to do as they wish."

"In the final analysis, they made a selection and we got to honour that solution," ended Wharfe.

Despite his loss, Wharfe the chief executive officer of the T&T Premier Football League said he will continue to do his job while awaiting the newly appointed TTFA executive to make their determinations.

Hadad also praised the election process saying that it was very professional and he was also delighted with the full turnout of the TTFA membership.

"It demonstrated the type of support T&T football has from within and the future is bright."

Hadad also thanked FIFA and Concacaf for their support and advice in getting local football to this point.

He added, "The NC process is completed but one outstanding matter is the BIA process which is still pending, as well as the two matters before the court, which will continue to be looked after the Trustee Maria Daniel, but other than that the TTFA is debt free apart from the FIFA loan which will be repaid in ten years."

Edwards played and was close to The Dictator, so hopefully he is not under the influence of the dictator. Hadad seemed very happy, which has me uneasy because that could signal another puppet.

It is a wait and see approach, if he keeps Eve, then you know who he is working for and who controls him..

New TTFA president knows what is required to lead football to a brighter future
By Brian Lewis (T&T Guardian)


“It is far better to be free to govern or misgovern yourself than to be governed by anybody else.” —Kwame Nkrumah

Kieron “Bo” Edwards is the new president of the T&T Football Association (TTFA). Edwards defeated Colin Wharfe at the Elective Congress 38-19 on Saturday at the Home of Football in Couva.

The TTFA last held elections for executive members in November 2019. William Wallace defeated David-John Williams to become TTFA president. FIFA removed the Wallace-led executive from office in March 2020 and appointed a normalisation committee to run the day-to-day affairs of the TTFA. It was alleged that FIFA’s pick in that race didn’t win. Yet again the perception is that FIFA’s preferred slate didn’t win on Saturday.

While there are those who with good cause will feel apprehensive about FIFA’s relationship with the newly minted TTFA president, his biggest challenge will emanate from within his own camp of supporters as he will have to manage their expectations and sense of entitlement given what they may consider as their contribution to his landslide win.

Many will seek to shape his agenda and fulfil their personal ambitions under the guise of being his closest and most trusted ally. Be wise president Edwards, you had the courage to take on the challenge. Be careful of those who aspired to be the leader but now fashion themselves as king-makers or the real power behind your throne. Temper your words. Give everyone a fair start, regardless of what you may have heard about them. Two wrongs never make a right. Nor can you right a wrong by committing another wrong.

The enormous potential of “Soca Warriors” football and its players need no repeating. Football globally is said to be the beautiful game and is acknowledged as the number one team sport in terms of participation. Here on the twin-island Republic, it’s no different. Football is numero uno (number one) in terms of participation. Track and field is the number one sport when it comes to international achievement be it World Championships and the Olympics. However, football captures the interest of the citizens every day. The Olympics gains wider public interest once every four years. Cricket some will argue generates similar interest as football. But it certainly will run second to football in terms of participation.

That being said, long story short, president Edwards has his work cut out for him. To my mind, it’s important that he has a successful tenure. His life experiences—good, bad and indifferent prepared him for his turn as leader of T&T football. The neutrals and all those who have the best interest of football will support him and give him a chance.

Like all local sports—football has to be entrepreneurial, future-thinking, marketing and brand development-oriented and innovative. In respect of good governance, transparency and accountability are non-negotiable with zero tolerance for corruption including illegal gambling. “Bo knows” what needs to be done. The strategy adopted over the many years that has led to this point in time, may not be an effective strategy in his new role. The first test he will face is stepping out from the shadows and ghosts of the way things were done.

The pendulum and momentum has swung in his direction.

T&T football is in for interesting and exciting times.

All eyes are on “Bo”, because Bo knows.

“I decided to step outside of my comfort zone and do things that I would never, ever do.”—Bo Jackson.

I wouldn't characterize the victory as a landslide. Undoubtedly comprehensive, but not a landslide. A not insignificant minority voted against Edwards.

Different governance style, new ‘movement’
By Selby Browne (T&T Express)


Congratulations to Kieron Edwards, new president of the Tri­nidad and Tobago Football Association after a landslide victory, 38 votes to 19 against the opponent, Colin Wharfe.

This win was testimony to the successful outcome of the meeting convened between then candidates Dennis Latiff, Edwards and myself, held on March 26. That meeting, I insisted was in fact the election, and not April 13, to ensure the outright victory for president Edwards, once the necessary compromise was agreed to have the election conducted between two slates only.

The resultant victory has ushered in the next generation of the TTFA with the youth—president Edwards, vice-president Jameson Rigues—and another important contributor, Rene John Williams, who was unfortunately a member of the opposing slate, all having the responsibility to restructure, develop and move football upward and onward to achieve excellence, based on the call of president Edwards to all members to participate in the best interests of Trinidad and Tobago football.

The TTFA election was a perfect example of the proper conduct of the Elective Congress, with the participation of all delegates who ensured all allocated votes were cast in the presence of representatives from the Caribbean Football Union, CONCACAF and FIFA as has been done for past elections in 2015 and 2019.

Other national bodies will be well advised to emulate the example of the TTFA membership in how it conducted its business.

The unified TTFA membership, in support of new president Edwards, shall be guided by his vision and initiatives as outlined in his Team Progressive manifesto. And in keeping with his undertaking, all can provide their input and contri­bute to the further development of the new TTFA strategic plan, 2024 and beyond, thereby embracing the commitment to build from the ground up.

The new TTFA will have the benefit of the full support from the world governing body FIFA and regional organisations CONCACAF and Caribbean Football Union as all members within the Caribbean and CONCACAF enjoy.

New governance of the TTFA

The plan for an open-door policy, along with a cutting-edge ivory league team of professionals, all of whom are masters in their own disciplines, is highly recommended and will prove extremely important.

With the amended TTFA constitution providing for certain committees to be headed by members of the executive, there would most certainly be room to include professional personnel on committees to ensure proper governance.

There is the need to attract nationals with sport business administration skills. They must be sourced whether they are based nationally or internationally.

Opportunities

The revenue generation assets of the TTFA, which include the national senior men’s team—the pro­duct by which the TTFA would be judged—must be considered a top priority for urgent and immediate attention. That unit must receive any required technical and professional support, along with strategic international marketing.

The strong TTFA must also make use of the football expertise within its ranks. Also, maximum benefit must be gained from earning revenue from the Home of Football, in addition to sourcing other invest­ment opportunities. There must be a return on investment.

There is also huge potential for the restructured TTFA to directly strengthen the zones. The conduct of competitive zonal football through community leagues, with primary schools, secondary schools and adult clubs competing, could prove to be an important initiative if undertaken. This will have the effect of an immediate reduction on tra­vel costs to teams and supporters, in addition to re-engineering the community socio-structurally, creating much-needed job opportunities and positive activity. The youths in these communities would be kept busy training, playing and striving for excellence. Gang warfare would become football warfare. You see where this is going? Up and up, better, and better, best and best. So, yes, all our citizens and the Government would benefit from the TTFA’s work.

The strengthening of the zones to embrace all football, from primary schools through college age, could go a long way in raising the level of entertainment to the standard we have long been famous for.

The TTFA has the benefit to work with Government to establish “football schools”. The vision must be to dominate world football in very much the same way that Jamaica dominates the Olympics and World Championships on the athlet­ics tracks, and the Brazilians have done so on the football field.

Financing and the Caribbean on the global stage in sport, entertainment

In addition to securing international financing and investment in the football, it is my view that the recognised power of football, and sports in general, will trigger the need to restructure the socio­e­conomic construct of our society. Government should impose a levy (2.5%) based on gross revenue on corporations. The sums should be placed in a fund for direct investment in football, sport in general, and the entertainment sector as a whole.

These sectors should no longer be dependent on the benevolence of the corporate sector, with token sponsorships being largely forthcoming. They must have direct investment opportunities. The entertainment sector, of which sport is an integral part, is second only to the energy sector in the region.

The Government and all Caribbean governments must take the lead for this “new world order”. All are welcome to join the new world order revolution.

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to call on the Government, all national institutions, political parties, the trade union movement, chambers of commerce, financial institutions and Jane and Joe Public to take this last train and join in this “movement of change” to have football, all sports disciplines and the entertainment sector take their rightful place of influence in society. The 2.5% gross revenue corporate tax must become a reality.

This model can be replicated throughout the Caribbean, Africa and worldwide for the new world order.

This TTFA election can be the launch of this “movement” throughout the region.

And now that the Caricom Regional Conference on West Indies Cricket is concluded, there is no better opportunity for Caribbean governments to collectively implement the 2.5% policy to provide the funding required for the restructuring and development of the West Indies cricket product, and thus facilitate a return to global excellence.

how about a 2.5% tax on gate receipts from football matches to fund businesses so they can hire more workers and produce more exports and foreign exchange earnings, reduce unemployment and put more money into the local economy?...so maybe more workers can then afford to go to more football matches...

Accountant Kareem Paul is new TTFA general secretary.
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


Accountant Kareem Paul is the new general secretary of the T&T Football Association (TTFA).

He came highly recommended as the replacement for Amiel Mohammed, who according to vice president Colin Murray, was “burnt out and didn’t want to stay on in the position”. The appointment was made at the weekend by the executive, led by new president Keiron Edwards based on a recommendation.

Mohammed’s tenure was said to be nearing its end, as it coincided with the appointment from the FIFA-installed normalisation committee, which time in office officially came to an end, last month.

Murray, a well-known sports commentator, said the executive sat and reviewed the resume of Paul and all found that he was the best choice for the job.

“He also has a football background which added to making him the preferred choice. Everybody was pretty impressed with his resume,” Murray said.

President Edwards is expected to introduce Paul to the public, as well as meet the media for the first time since being elected into office on April 13.

Mohammed entered the position of general secretary as a replacement for Ramesh Ramdhan, the former referee who became only the first referee from the Caribbean to officiate in the FIFA World Cup Finals during the 1998 FIFA World Cup held in France. Ramdhan was a member of the then William Wallace-led Football Association which defeated the David John-Williams-led administration in 2019.

Three months after assuming office, the Wallace-led administration was removed by the sport’s world governing body - FIFA and a normalisation committee was installed on the basis that the new executive had put the sport on the verge of bankruptcy and insolvency.

The normalisation committee, which then comprised chairman Robert Hadad, Nigel Romano, and Judy Daniel at the time, retained Ramdhan as general secretary briefly. However, Mohammed was appointed as the general secretary after Ramdhan was suspended, and an inquiry was held in September 2020.

Mohammed is a graduate of Queen’s Royal College who served as a Media and Communications officer for local pro league club Central FC, a Communications and Logistics Officer for the 2015 Women’s Premier League, Digital Media and Web Coordinator for the 2017 T&T Super League in the TTSL Secretariat, a freelance journalist, and a Project Coordinator for numerous projects geared towards sport and youth development and the inclusion of the differently-abled community.

Paul was invited to the local organising committee meeting on Saturday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo, Port-of-Spain, and it is believed that Mohammed may stay on to usher him into the new position. Another TTFA executive told Guardian Media that it is uncertain if Mohammed will leave the association or if he will be retained in another position.

Meanwhile, recommendations to fill some of the standing committees in the football associations have been made, the executive said. The committees include the Competitions and Tournaments, Finance, Women’s Football, Referees, and the Marketing Committee.

Though the names of the members of the committees were not revealed, it is understood that each of the executive members will be put to chair them.

Murray told Guardian Media Sports yesterday that while the new general secretary has been an important appointment for his administration, they are focussed on tonight’s key World Cup qualifier between this country and Grenada at the Hasely Crawford Stadium from 7.30 pm.

The Soca Warriors’ Group B encounter will be followed by a second match against the Bahamas on Saturday in the Bahamas.

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