Trinidad and Tobago Women's League Football

At Wednesday's WoLF annual general meeting (AGM) and Elections at the Home of Football in Balmain, Couva, Mora led a clean sweep of the nine positions contested for her slate by beating her opponent Lyndell Hoyte-Sanchez for the position of president 11-8.

Yesterday, Mora told the media she believes her success was due mainly to the level of efficiency and competence she exhibited as the WoLF general secretary. Saying while she knew she went up against a very strong candidate in Hoyte-Sanchez, she noted that those who would have worked with her throughout the years would have had first-hand knowledge of her capabilities, and what she can bring to the table.

"I am elated to be elected as the new president after serving as the general secretary for some years now, and by extension, I am excited to work with my entire team as we have all been successful in each of our positions. So I am really excited and humbled to see what's in store for T&T Women's football in the future," Mora said after her triumph.

"So my first assignment is to have a general secretary appointed because we know how important a general secretary is in this role, and we also as an executive plan to meet with the TTFA to work with them on the way forward for women's football on the whole."

Mora's achievements were mirrored by her eight other executive members, including Carel Purcy who held off Julia Baptiste, a former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the then T&T Professional Football League 11-8 for the position of vice president; Ikenna Joseph who prevailed over Anisa Duncan 10-9 to be the treasurer; Roxanne Herbert beating Dennis Noel 10-9 for the post of secretary admin; Brittney Williams clinching the assistant secretary operations position at the expense of Joel Warrick 10-9; Lystra Lara defeating Adrian Romain for the position of assistant secretary competitions 10-9; and Kamile De Gale prevailed over Mohan Persad 10-9 for public relations officer (PRO).

The Mora's slate also sealed the two Ordinary Members' positions through Stacy Ann Augustus and Shanice Auguste, both disposing of Howard Spencer, a former Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) executive member (10-9) and Chris Bailey (11-9), respectively.

According to Mora: "I am a solution-oriented person so as an executive we plan to meet with the stakeholders, bring them to the table basically-the Government, corporate T&T, the teams, and the TTFA so that we can work out a solution together, and the way forward for women's football and the development of women's football in T&T."

The Mora-led executive is banking on an aggressive marketing plan to take women's football on par with what they've been exposed to internationally.
