Ottos Rangers FC President Daryl Michael has been appointed to the CFU’s Audit Committee, while President of Antigua & Barbuda Football Referees’ Association (ABFRA) has been placed on the sub-regional body’s Referee’s Committee.
Michael joins Bermuda’s Andrew Griffith who will head the Audit Committee which also includes Frederick Lunn of The Bahamas, Ken Whiteman of Grenada, and Derek George of St Lucia.
The ABFA executive member said he was surprised by the appointment to that particular committee.
“It’s a job that I think I can handle and manage well and I am excited to do the work for the club and the ABFA. I know that I was nominated to work in those areas where it pertains to the finances but it was surprising they had chosen me to be on that one but I am still happy to be a part of it,” Michael said.
Roberts, on the Referees’ Committee, joins Chairman Peter Pendergrast of Jamaica, Luis Enrique Yero of Cuba, Alfredo Whittaker of Cayman Islands, Dianne Ferreira-James of Guyana, Hedwig Vinkwolk of Suriname and Merere Gonzales of Trinidad and Tobago.
The goal of the committee, according to a release, shall be to assist the executive committee of the union in fulfilling its responsibilities in respect of overseeing the CFU’s financial reporting process, including the internal control structure and procedures for financial reporting and monitoring the integrity and appropriateness of the union’s financial statements.
Roberts hopes his knowledge in the field would assist the important committee.
“I am humbled that the CFU has seen me as somebody that they think can help lead referees forward. I expect to do my best, and I am going into the committee with all the ideas that I have, hoping that the input I have to give the referees in the Caribbean will be better for it,” he said.
The goal of the Referee Committee shall be to advise the executive committee of the union by undertaking financial planning and oversight responsibilities by monitoring, reviewing and providing advisory functions in the areas of budget and financial services.
