UPCOMING OLYMPIC GAMES

T&T OLYMPIC TEAM TTO PARTNERS

Darren Millien is out, and general secretary Sheldon Phillips has had his portfolio cut down by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA).
Yesterday, those decisions came at a special meeting of the TTFA’s Executive Committee was held according to an Association press release, to “discuss the issues and circumstances surrounding the tour to Argentina in June 2014.”
The meeting follows a two-part report on the Wired 868 website last week that claimed that $400,000 was unaccounted for. The matter is said to be before the Fraud Squad.
According to the TTFA release, the Executive Committee agreed to accept the withdrawal of Darren Millien’s services as commercial agent for the TTFA following a meeting between Association president Raymond Tim Kee and Millien on Friday.
It was also decided that general secretary Sheldon Phillips would no longer lead government relations and team management functions. William Wallace will now take up those duties
In addition, the TTFA has also appointed former president of the West Indies Players Association Dinanath Ramnarine as a consultant to lead efforts to assist the TTFA with its governance and management reform and to review and restructure its operations.
In the release, Tim Kee offered no reasons for the removal of Millien or the downsizing of Phillips’ portfolio, but instead said, “the TTFA is pleased to have someone of Mr Ramnarine’s caliber as part of its reformation effort. Dinanath is a hard-working individual who brings to the table a wealth of experience in sports administration and governance.”
Ramnarine, who has been a member of the TTFA’s independent review commission, also involved in the mediation of the settlement of outstanding payments to the 2006 World Cup players.
Ramnarine said, “I look forward to working with Mr Tim Kee and the Executive Committee to establish processes and systems that would put Trinidad and Tobago football on its best footing.”
On Wallace’s inclusion, Tim Kee added: “Mr Wallace brings a wealth of experience to our organisation having managed relationships with various Government and international organisations. He has worked extensively with various bodies both in local football and cricket at the youth and senior levels and has demonstrated a high level of commitment. I think he will be a valuable addition to the management of the TTFA.”
