St Ann FA boss to appeal JFF ban

President of the St Ann Football Association, Danny Beckford, has moved to appeal his six-month suspension by the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

"I received an official letter from the JFF's general secretary Raymond Grant that I am suspended (as a member of the JFF board of directors) for six months effective last Monday morning," Beckford told STAR Sports last night.

"Now, I will formulate a letter of appeal and send it out. I will do it tonight (Tuesday) as I have 48 hours on receipt of the letter to do so," the JFF board member stated.

The suspension which started as of Monday at midnight came after Beckford sent a letter to JFF president Captain Horace Burrell, calling on him to step down from the post.

Beckford was given 24 hours to apologise to the JFF boss for the contents of his letter following a board meeting on Sunday at the JFF's offices in New Kingston.

However, Beckford did not apologise and the JFF handed down the punishment that will see Beckford being barred from all football activities until May 2017.
