JFF settles payment dispute with Reggae Girlz

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Daniel Blake

Jamaica Football Federation (FF) president Michael Ricketts will start his second stint with one less issue to worry about as the Reggae Girlz' intended strike ahead of the Olympic Qualifiers could be aborted. With no challengers, Ricketts was officially returned as the JFF president at Sunday's Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Speaking to RJR Sports immediately afterwards, Ricketts said the JFF has settled all outstanding salaries with the national women's team. However, the salaries for the Reggae Girlz team coaches are still outstanding with just days away from the September 25 ultimatum given to the local governing body.

Meanwhile, Ricketts has also dispelled news that the Reggae Boyz are also planning their own strike ahead of next month's Nations League match as they are yet to receive any payment from the recent CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Sunday's JFF approval will see Ricketts serving for the next four years as president while Bruce Gaynor and Raymond Anderson have been returned as vice presidents and will be joined by Peter Reid who replaced Gary Sinclair, who did not seek re-election.
