Guyana Football Federation elections just days away – 10th Apr 2013
More support for Aubrey ‘Shanghai’ Major as the GFF elections loom just 2 days away. The former partner of the Kashief and Shanghai Organisation has managed to pick up the Endorsement of The Captain of the Golden Jaguars team Christopher Nurse. Nurse in a letter to the press, said that himself and 2 former captains of the Golden Jaguars, Kayode Mc Knnon and Charles Lily Pollard believe that Major was the person best suited, among the candidates, to lead the GFF at this time. They are supportive of the things he has promised to do once elected and said he was the person with the vision who brought former coach, Jamaal Shabaaz, to Guyana and gave the players and staff all of his support. They believe that he has demonstrated the ability to deliver while he remained a member of the GFF’s executive.
Major has also publicly received the backing of Presidential Advisor on Empowerment, Odinga Lumumba, who is also President of the Alpha United Club. Other endorsements include Chairman of Air Services Limited, Yacoob Ally. The other 3 Candidates for the Presidency are Christopher Mathias, who is the President of the Georgetown Football Association, Ivan Persaud, who has served on the staff of the Golden Jaguars team in a technical capacity and Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Culture Youth and Sport Alfred King.
