The Guyana Football Federation (GFF), has appointed a three-member committee of Chairman Trevor Williams, Major Shem Fung and Nolan Lancaster to serve as the Interim Management Committee of the Georgetown Football Association (GFA).
This information was revealed via an official correspondence from the federation. The body, which has a six month lifespan, commenced its tenure on July 9th.
According to the release from the GFF, among the key responsibilities of the entity are, “a. managing the daily operations of the GFA in accordance with the Constitution of the GFA. b. Organising the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the GFA and organising elections accordingly by December 31, 2018, in accordance with the Constitution of the GFA. c. Organising the competitions of the GFA. d. Establishing an office for the daily operations of the GFA. e. Preparing and submitting monthly reports to the Executive Committee of the GFF.”
The Wayne Forde led GFF via a press release on June 30th, announced that it had dissolved the Executive Committee of the GFA, paving the way for the installation of an IMC.
According to the correspondence, “The Guyana Football Federation has taken the painfully imposed, but constitutionally obligatory, step of appointing an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to manage the affairs of the Georgetown Football Association effective June 29, 2018 until new elections are conducted in accordance with the Constitution of the GFA.”
The release added that the action of the GFF was necessary due to the association’s inability to “reconcile the many challenges it faced over the last 2 ½ years that witnessed the stultification in football programmes and initiatives.”
According to the document, the GFF has told the GFA of its decision to revoke their mandate, adding “the appointment of the IMC has been taken in conformity with the guidelines and provisions of Article 2 Para. [d] & [e], Article 13. Para. [a], and Article 82 of the GFF Constitution, as well as Article 8 Para. 2 of the FIFA Statutes.”
