foot ballGFF vice President Ivan is calling for the President of the GFF to resign. Ina letter published in the press Persaud has accused Mathias of unprofessional behavior and showing a lack of respect for fellow executive committee members. Persaud in a telephone interview with Capitol News said that he has stayed silent on the issues he had problems with because he was giving the new administration time to get things going. But he said the recent issue of the banning of executives of the UDFA was one of the final straws.

Persaud said he remains committed to the development of football and will not be chased from the sport.

But the GFF president has responded to Persaud in an interview late this afternoon.

And the GFF has filled 2 key positions on its executive this afternoon to replace Rawlston Adams and Collie Hercules.

Daniel Thomas will replace Hercules as a VP Competition  and Jermaine Figuero will fill the post of VP Admin

And guyana’s competitive swimmers should be back at the aquatic centre in a few days’ time . Capitol news understands that the pool will be open to the clubs once again after being closed for several months. The closure according to Ministry of Sport officials was to safeguard the 50 m facility while the warm up/ warm down facilty was being constructed. The warm up warm down pool is a necessity when holding competitions especially those of an international nature. The construction of the new pool has come under intense scrutiny as reports surfaced last year and earlier this year that there may have been damage to the 50 m facility. Those reports have been denied by the Minister of sport and other government officials. In the meantime the castellani and Colgrain pools have accommodated the swimmers.
