Devorn Jorsling

VOLATILE SITUATION: Defence Force player Devorn Jorsling, at top, instructs a Morvant Caledonia AIA official to stay clear while ushering away assistant referee Kirt Charles at the end of Wednesday's game between the first and second-placed teams at Larry Gomes Stadium, Malabar, Arima.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Referees Association (TTFRA) has said that it “condemns in the strongest terms the attack on the officials officiating the Morvant-Caledonia AIA vs Defence Force match played on Wednesday 18th September 2019.”

In response, Morvant Caledonia AIA owner Jamaal Shabazz said they had given their side of the story and that the only individual landing a blow was a match official. The local referees body has called for action to be taken on parties involved.
