Seaga resigns as PFAJ chairman

first_imgAfter six years at the helm of the Professional Football Association of Jamaica (PFAJ), Edward Seaga will be resigning as chairman of the organisation effective today. Seaga, who remains as head of the Premier League Clubs Association (PLCA), announced his resignation from the post at the launch of the Red Stripe Premier League, at the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) office yesterday. He will be replaced by respected pollster and former Jamaica Olympic Association vice-president Don Anderson. Seaga explained that when he was asked to assume the role six years ago, he only committed to doing it for three years, but that extended to six years, and he believes he has done enough, and that it is time to step aside. “Six years ago, I was asked by the Captain (Horace Burrell) to take the chairmanship of the PFAJ because, at that time, we were settling into the new order. Now, I have brought it to the end of the sixth year, and I’d promised that I would only do it for three years,” Seaga explained. “I told him (Burrell) that it was my intention to resign as of tomorrow from the PFAJ chairmanship. But I am sure they (PFAJ) will continue to operate at the high level as we have done over the last year. They will continue to play the role we have played to make football what it should be,” he added. Burrell could not find praise enough for Seaga, for the work he has done with both the PLCA and PFAJ. “I want to thank Mr Seaga for a tremendous job. It would have been extremely difficult to achieve all that we have. We now have an organisation that is well structured and well run, and Mr Seaga, with his leadership, has been able to keep everyone together and the ship afloat, despite the many challenges,” Burrell stated. The new chairman insisted that Seaga’s boots would be hard to fill. “The vote of this level of confidence in me to take over is an awesome responsibility; it’s a huge set of shoes to fill,” said Anderson. “But I will approach it in a way that I have approached all my involvement in sports all my life, and that is in a very professional way. “I will take to the table the high degree of professionalism that has kept me in good stead for 32 years as vice-president of the Jamaica Olympic Association,” said Anderson. – Livingston Scottlast_img read more
