Goalkeeper Clayton Ince has threatened to take legal action against the newly formed Trinidad and Tobago Professional Footballers Association.
Ince, now the number one goalie with English League one side Walsall, in a letter to PFA representatives Kelvin Jack and Brent Sancho last week, stated that it been brought to his attention that his name was being used in an advertisement for a Player’s Association fund-raising event without his knowledge or written consent.
“Prior to this, I received correspondence from the Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) asking whether I was being represented by the legal firm representing said Association in the legal action that the Player’s Association was proceeding with against them.
“I wish to draw your attention to the fact that I have never been contacted or informed, either verbally or in writing, of any legal actions (i.e. actions brought against Jack Warner and/or the T&TFF) or fund-raising events prior to announcements made publicly.
“As such, I strongly suggest you desist from using my name in any of your promotions and/or legal actions. Should you continue to use my name without my written approval I will be left with no alternative but to take legal action against you and/or the Players’ Association,” stated Ince.
The event he was referring to was a play put on in London last month in conjunction with the English PFA to help raise funds for the T&T players association. This event reportedly got a good response. Ince meantime, had another solid display between the uprights as his Walsall beat Accrington Stanley 3-2 to stay second on the standings and maintain their promotion hopes. Hector Sam was a 57th minute on-sub for the winners.
