The executive of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) led by its president, William Wallace, held a meeting today at its head office at the Ato Boldon Stadium to discuss the matter involving Premier Division schools Naparima College and St Benedict’s College as it relates to breach of sponsorship rules specifically branding on playing shirts.

The SSFL members held discussions via a conference call with the principals of Naparima College and St Benedict’s College Dr Michael Dowlath and Gregory Quan Kep respectively.

Both principals issued an unreserved apology during the conference call for their action on Wednesday and have agreed to comply with all rules and regulations of the League going forward.

They have also agreed to issue a public apology to the League, partners and all stakeholders on Monday.

The SSFL Executive also agreed to recommend to the general council that no action be taken against the two schools, but any school that breaches these rules in the future will be immediately suspended. However, the final decision will be made when the general council meets on Monday.

The SSFL and its partners now look forward to an incident-free season of competitive football and Fair Play for 2019.
