[] – Chairman of the Normalisation Committee, Clinton Urling announced that the Committee is hoping to completely reform the Guyana Football Federation’s (GFF) constitution by February, 2015.

The announcement was made at a press conference held on Wednesday at the GFF’s head office in Campbellville.

“The GFF constitution will be looked at in February for two days… FIFA will spearhead and at the end of it, all the associations will have to mirror the GFF’s constitution, so that will be the first step,” Urling stated.

In addition, the Normalisation Committee has appointed a new Financial Director in Kareem Jones as well as Stuart May as the Head of the Women’s Committee. Urling and Trevor Beckles will also take up the roles of Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Referee’s committee.

Meanwhile, the successful candidate that will be appointed as the new Technical Director will be appointed in January.

“We had lot of candidates from as far as Romania and the UK and we did a number of interviews over the past two days and we are hoping to introduce the new Technical Director by the second week in January who will be responsible for forming development plans on all levels,” Urling highlighted.

Meanwhile, he also congratulated eight referees who received international accreditation from FIFA. Urling also noted that the GFF will be participating in a number of tournaments in 2015, namely; a friendly against Barbados in January, the under-23 Olympic qualifiers, the World Cup qualifiers as well as the CFU Club championships.

The international referees are: Sherwin Moore, Sherwin Johnson, Venton Mars, Trevor Porter, Kleon Lindey, Kevin Stephens, Lenval Pearts and the lone female Maurees Skeet.
