Rule me out! - Shaw says he wont vie for netball top job
VETERAN sports administrator Wayne Shaw said despite being among persons eligible to challenge incumbent Paula Daley-Morris for the post of president of Netball Jamaica, he has no such ambitions.
The annual general meeting of Netball Jamaica, which is held every two-years, is scheduled for November.
Shaw, a director at Netball Jamaica, told STAR Sports he has been asked by persons within netball circles to challenge Daley-Morris.
"I have no interest in running for the presidency of Netball Jamaica because it is a woman sport and must have a woman president. That is my view," said Shaw.
"I have been asked a by a lot of people and I have told them I have no interest in it. I am the president of KSAFA (Kingston and St Andrew Football Association), president of the Business House Football Association five-a-side and 11-a-side competitions, so I cannot take anything else on my plate.
"I also managed Scotia netball. I manage Jamalco and CablePro, so that's just about it. I will only do management in netball will not run for the presidency," Shaw added.
Netball Jamaica's constitution stipulates that in order to run for presidency, candidates must be a board member for two years.
Shaw, along with first vice-president Jackie Robotham and second vice-president Cora Ricketts, are the only other members of the board who can challenge Daley-Morris for the post in November.
"They have ladies in the association that can run it so, if they want to challenge, let them challenge," Shaw said.
The Daley-Morris led administration has come under a lot pressure in recent times, especially after the Sunshine Girls 1-1 draw against Barbados on home soil in May.
The Jamaica Under-21 netball team also had a dismal showing at the Netball World Youth Cup in Botswana, finishing fifth.
