New man in charge of T&T football
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC:
David John-Williams is the new president of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA), following elections here on Sunday.
Williams, boss of top T&T side W Connection, defeated incumbent Raymond Tim Kee 25 votes to 19 after the second round of voting.
After the first round of a hotly contested election, John-Williams earned 18 votes to Tim Kee's 13, while the other presidential contender Clynt Taylor got eight.
The other two presidential candidates Selby Browne and Ramesh Ramdhan were eliminated by virtue of each receiving just three votes.
"I will lead from the front and set an example," declared John-Williams.
"If I have to pick up papers for T&T football, I will do that".
Williams says his first order of business is a budget exercise for the National Under-20 women's team, which will be off to Honduras for a CONCACAF Championship this week.
The new president also announced plans to set up sub-committees as well as seek an audience with national coach Stephen Hart ahead of the Copa American play-off with Haiti on January 8.
He also told a media conference in Port-of-Spain that his administration will consider making adjustments to TTFA's constitution.
