The culmination of Mayor, Hamilton Green 79th birth anniversary 7-a-side Inter-ward Knockout Competition, took place on Sunday, January 26, 2014 at the Den Amstel Community Centre Ground, with a doubleheader. In the feature match home side Den Amstel engaged North East La Penitence, in the final, preceded by a Junior Mayor’s All Stars X1 opposing Young Achievers, in a supposedly friendly/exhibition match.
Editor, it must be noted that with Young Achievers being an affiliate of the West Demerara Football Association, which is affiliated to the Guyana Football Federation; was approval sought by the club from the WDFA to participate in the match? In addition to the players from the “All-Stars X1, all of whom are members from various clubs, in different Associations”, were the respective association executives informed in writing?
As a consequence of this development, it would be interesting to know how the GFF would view this development! Moreover, when it is taken into serious consideration that the imposition of a levy fee, was overlooked/ignored, in defiance of the constitutional requirement re: “Collecting of gate/entrance fees at the venue”!
Finally, while the points outlined in the preceding paragraph must not be construed as an attack on the competition or the organizer, from a layman’s perspective however, it must be in the public’s interest how the GFF’s executive would react in upholding constitutionality, natural justice and promoting “Fair Play”, in this specific instance. Or would a blind eye be turned and constitutional articulation is conveniently applied wrongfully as was done with the UDFA!
The ball is now in the GFF’s half of the field, in pursuit of maintaining possession for a match winning opportunity in regulation time! Since extra time and an ensuing penalty shootout can result in another embarrassment for the GFF, should there be just one iota of a constitutional contravention by a club, association or player. Would there be another extraordinary congress, to impose sanctions on anyone who is culpable?
