The following is a press statement from the National Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago (NFCTT):

The National Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago (NFCTT) put positive, pro-active governance on the front burner again this week, as its steering committee met with Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) president Brian Lewis on 5 January 2021.

Discussions with Lewis centred primarily around ways to improve planning and transparency in sports administration, and the potential negative social effects from the extended period of restrictions on sporting activity.

The steering committee was led in talks by Jefferson George, who was voted interim president on 20 November 2020. At present, Wayne Sheppard is interim first vice-president while Dernelle Mascall (interim second vice-president), Curtis Orr (interim treasurer) and Rayshawn Mars (interim general secretary) were also given portfolios.


The remaining steering committee members are Angus Eve, Clayton Morris, and Richard Hood.

The steering committee has already presented its draft constitution to the Fifa-appointed normalisation committee along with a letter of intent for full recognition within the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA).

Among other business, the NFCTT steering committee has also embarked on a Covid relief hamper distribution. Donations from members were put towards the purchase and delivery of hampers to ex-coaches football administrators and officials.

Next on the NFCTT’s agenda is a meeting with TTFA technical director Dion La Foucade to discuss the potential for synergy between the local football body and the coaching association. This meeting is carded for Saturday 16 January.

The NFCTT also met with TTFRA vice-president Osmond Downer, who offered valuable constitutional advice, while courtesy calls and messages of support were received from former coaching stalwart Errol McFarlane and veteran administrator Lennox ‘Bullets’ Pilgrim.
