Clarendon Football Association president Michael Ricketts is the latest football official to declare his intention of challenging for the JFF presidency to succeed the late captain Horace Burrell at the upcoming Special General Meeting set for September 16. He spoke on Hitz 92 FM's Sports Grill on Tuesday.
“I would want to be far more inclusive and have my directors engaged in the decision-making process to ensure that there’s the highest level of transparency. I’ve gotten verbal commitment (support) from the respective parish presidents (South Central Confed), if it goes otherwise I would be deceived,” said Ricketts.
Ricketts also indicated his willingness to engage other presidential candidates in a public debate leading up to the election. Current JFF vice-president Raymond Anderson has also publicly declared his intention to challenge for the post.
Former KSAFA president Stewart Stephenson and Phoenix Academy head Craig Butler are also believed to be interested in the position. Nominations will open on July 18 and close on August 2.
