RJR Sports understands that Raymond Anderson, one of those expected to run for the post of Jamaica Football Federation president, is contemplating to stand down. It's understood that Anderson, a current vice-president, is struggling to garner the number of nominations needed to enter the race. Each potential candidate must get nominations from at least four parish associations.
RJR sources have also revealed that former KSAFA president Stewart Stephenson who was harbouring thoughts of running for the JFF presidency, has decided to put those plans on hold as it’s understood that KSAFA will be throwing its support behind Clarendon Football Association president Michael Ricketts who now appears to be the front-runner in a bid to replace the late Captain Horace Burrell. St Ann FA president Danny Beckford is also understood to be interested in contesting the race for the top spot.
Nominations for the post of president will open on July 18 and close on August 2. The election is set for September 16. The JFF is currently being run by Bruce Gaynor who is operating in an interim capacity.
