Often a pain in their side, constitution expert and former referee and school principal Osmond Downer has come out in support of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association on an issue of transparency in its forthcoming elections.

This comes after Super League president and TTFA Board member Keith Look Loy recently wrote to general secretary Kamara David, asking him to reveal the names of all candidates declared to take part in next month’s election of officers. “With the passing of the deadline date for all nominations to be submitted to you, TTFA general secretary, I now request the names of all persons whose nominations met said deadline, as well as the positions they propose to contest,” Look Loy had stated in correspondence to David.
