Former Jamaica Football Federation physical trainer Andre Waugh has been appointed the Caribbean Development Manager for CONCACAF which recently opened an office at the Courtleigh Corporate Centre in Jamaica.

Waugh, who was also former Portmore United technical director and University of Technology lecturer, wants to raise the standard of football in the region.

He believes his experience from both his former jobs will serve him well in his new capacity.

"It has always been my desire serve at the highest level, so this opportunity will allow me to put what I have been doing in JCC and UTech, together and try to give back on a wider scale," he told STAR Sports.

"I really want to mark. Money is rewarding but I want to lay in my bed at night and feel I have made a contribution and a mark," he added.

Waugh, who studied sport science in Cuba, will coordinate and supervise development activities specific to the Caribbean. This includes coaching education programmes, women's football, and link with different technical directors of the region and assist with development programs and he is ready to take on this new challenge.

"This (job) is going to require a lot of commitment. I am really looking forward to the challenge and I like the direction of the organisation, the programmes that are on stream and the vision of president and director of the Caribbean, Horace Reid, so the future looks bright," he stated.
