SVGFF to complete Executive this Saturday


The remaining five Committee Members to complete the Executive of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Football Federation (SVGFF) will be known this Saturday, January 17, at a special meeting to be held at the Football Federation’s Office at Bentinck Square.{{more}}

Saturday’s meeting is the first at which the new Executive of the SVGFF will be interfacing with the affiliates since elections were held September 24, last year.

Soon after being elected, President Venold Coombs announced his two appointees in Guy Lowe and Dominic Stowe.

The filling of the other five positions is part of the Federation’s constitution.

Early in December, the SVGFF issued a notice for the meeting, which was set for December 31. However, several persons had complained that the timing was inconvenient, as it coincided with the Old Year’s Day activities.

It was felt that persons would not be in the frame of mind for such a meeting, given the festive mood of the country at that time. The SVGFF obliged; hence the postponement.

Deviating from the norm, the SVGFF also made provisions for nominations.

Adhering to the new development, Prospect United had from early in December made their nominations.

Among the nominees is Prospect’s lead man, Clemroy “Bert” Francois, who contested the post of Third Vice President at last September’s elections, but lost to Paul Boucher.

Also nominated is a former committee member under the Joseph Delves executive, Kamara Doyle, and another former committee member, Asberth Williams, who served in the St Clair Leacock administration.

The other nominee, from the Prospect United club, is Yolande London.

It is expected though, that nominations will be taken from the floor at Saturday’s meeting, with the incumbent executive making sure that personnel in its camp are also in the mix for nomination and eventual election.

Also on the agenda for Saturday’s meeting is a report by President Venold Coombs, who will give an update of his Executive’s stewardship for the past three and a half months, since taking office.(RT)
