Former NC head admits to a contract with Elite Clubs

first_img… calls for negotiations and compromisesBy Ras WadadaFORMER chairman of the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee (NC), Clinton Urling, has dismissed assertions by president of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) that there was never any contract between the original eight Elite Clubs and the Federation.Urling, who is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Sports Management at Colombia University in New York, was head of the NC that initiated the Elite league last year.In recapping for Chronicle Sport, via the telephone, Urling insisted that a contract was signed by both parties.“Chairman of the committee for the Introduction of the Elite League, Tariq Williams and then Technical Director of the GFF, Claude Bolton, met almost weekly with the eight identified Elite Clubs in the initial engagements.“Ironically, Mr Forde who is now president of the GFF was a part of all those discussions and they mutually agreed in the end to all the terms and conditions of the Rules of the Elite League.“This is semantics in the sense that if me and you enter into a written agreement which all 8 clubs signed off on, and the agreement listed all the rules and regulations, the prize moneys, no relegation and promotion until after two years, no expansion and all the other things, which all the parties had to agree upon after several rounds of discussions, it is a contract because they all agreed and signed off.All the clubs agreed, including Fruta Conquerors which was then headed by Wayne Forde. I am not a lawyer, but if you as the regulatory party and the eight clubs accept the rules and signed off, that’s a contract. If the GFF wants to breach the contract and they are arguing that it’s not a contract, that agreement exists. The agreement is not a figment of someone’s imagination.“The GFF has the authority to regulate all football but they do not have the authority to infringe or alter agreements at their own whims and fancies. These things have to be done in a professional environment where rules, agreements and contracts are respected,” Urling pointed out.“The GFF needs to be on the offensive and stop being on the defensive on this issue, and all it requires is simple dialogue, negotiating and compromising, the same way the NC did it last year working with all the clubs to complete our mandate.“We succeeded because of our engagements with the clubs and that was supreme and salient for us – dialogue, negotiating and compromising – going back and forth, even at the last minute, to change some of the rules and agreements that we mutually agreed upon.And this present GFF administration needs to go back to the past and see that positions where you are butting heads have not resulted in anything good. It has stagnated the game to the extent FIFA had to intervene and install a NC. The GFF must have the culture, spirit and willingness to dialogue and negotiate, not to impose their will,” Urling suggested.Urling thinks the idea of expanding the League is a good move and says he would endorse it once he can evaluate it as being economically viable. He further added it might very well be what the League needs at this stage.“The expansion could very well be the most exciting thing for the League and maybe it is the injection to create excitement, but again it comes back to doing it in a professional manner. It must be done constitutionally which would require a Congress. There are lots of issues to consider and clear out of the way and every MA must be involved in the process.”last_img read more

How Syracuse fields a roster with 5 of 8 players from overseas

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 17, 2016 at 9:51 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturco As Younes Limam walks up and down the courts, watching his team closely, he looks around and sees players from all over the world. Czech Republic, Egypt, Greece, Israel, Ukraine and the United States.The team, comprised of nearly all freshman — only three players returned from last year’s roster — has won all six of its meets this season. Barring any injuries or sickness, all but one of SU’s singles matches are played by these overseas players. Four of SU’s six doubles players are foreign.“We’re recruiting from all over,” the second-year head coach said. “Basically whoever shows interest and whoever is good enough to come in and compete at a very high level, we’re after them.”And Syracuse has been able to compete at a high level with foreign players. This year, the Orange has already defeated two ranked teams in No. 72 Tulane and No. 58 Columbia. Because of SU’s 6-0 start, the Orange’s best since 2009, the team recently found itself jumping from unranked to No. 62 in the nation.Despite being a diverse group, Syracuse has mixed together smoothly and gets another shot to beat a ranked opponent in No. 48 Boston College, the Orange’s first Atlantic Coast Conference opponent, on Saturday at 11 a.m. at Drumlins Country Club.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLimam, a former assistant coach at Rice, was announced as SU’s head coach in June 2014. While he did handle some recruiting aspects at Rice, he now has the final say in recruitment matters at Syracuse. He has branched out globally, taking risks on professional players and seeing if they translate well.“(With) tennis being a global sport, having other very good players playing overseas, if we can attract those players, then why not?” Limam said.The Orange’s five international players have combined for a 22-5 record in singles play so far this year. Anna Shkudun is the No.1 doubles and singles player for the Orange and is currently a graduate student. While she is technically not a freshman, this is her first year of tennis in America.“I played professional for 10 years, and after, I decided to come to ‘Cuse,” said Shkudun, who played as an amateur in professional tournaments. “The coach texted me, and I saw a very good opportunity in my life to get a degree in America and practice with a good team and good coaches.”Shkudun is not the only one that was actively recruited from playing professionally. Limam and the previous Syracuse coaching staff all had a part in bringing over each and every overseas player — all of which were among the top at their age and country.Gabriela Knutson was recruited by former Syracuse head coach Luke Jensen. Libby Mesh, Hegab and Maria Tritou were all recruited from Israel, Egypt and Greece, respectively.“It just varies. Every situation is different,” Limam said. “We reach out to some players overseas, they reach out to us as well. We take it from there.” Commentslast_img read more

Unfortunately it had to be cancelled because of COVID-19.
