DFA president presents uniform to one of the women’s teams

President of the Dominica Football Association (DFA) Glen Etienne has revealed that the issue of insurance for the women taking part in the Women’s football league will be fully covered by the DFA from August 2019.

Etienne made his comments at the Football House in Bath Estate where he gave eight football clubs each, a full set of football uniforms and a check of one thousand dollars.

“Over the past years, the issue of insurance for the women taking part in the league has always been a major concern and we, at the Dominica Football Association (DFA), have decided that from August 2019, all the women taking part in the DOMLEC Women’s Football league will be insured,” Etienne said. “We are not going to ask the clubs to give us a subvention…we will make it compulsory that all the players will be insured in the 2019/2020 football season.”

On the issue of the uniform, Etienne stated that in the past, they have been borrowing uniforms for the women’s team, now this is something in the past.

“We also used to give them men’s uniforms but this uniform is specially designed for the women…I want to also tell you that despite a few challenges that we have been facing as it relates to the DOMLEC Women’s Football League, we are committed to having the league fully completed,” the DFA Boss stated.

Etienne indicated that the heightened political events now taking place in Dominica are affecting the smooth running of the league. He says this has created some issues for the league since the political parties are using playing fields for their political rallies.

“As we speak, our national women’s team is in training for the Windwards tournament for June 26 – July 7 under the coach, Albert Titre said. “We always take part in the Windwards Women Football Tournament and we expect our girls to do well,” Etienne said. There is a lot of football generally for women CFU Under 14. We are also going to have regional football centers in Dominica where the young girls will be mentored from an early age.”

Renowned sports personality, Phillip Alleyne, laid to rest

Catholic Priest Monsignor Eustace Thomas who was the main celebrant at the funeral mass of former cricket umpire and football referee Phillip Gregory Alleyne has expressed “disappointment” at the turnout at Alleyne’s funeral which was held on Wednesday February 19, 2020 at the Fatima Church in Newtown.

“What about us my dear friends, what about our sense of service, whatever job we have, do we enjoy it and work to the best of our ability, there are a number of professionals who don’t like what they are doing,” the priest said.

According to him they just come to work for the money but the late Phillip Alleyne was a hard working individual who believed in a “fair days’ work for a fair days pay.”

He said, that during the time of Phillip Alleyne, people played sports (cricket) for “love of country, for patriotism, they hardly got money, but that is not the case today,” Monsignor Thomas stated.

The late Phillip Gregory Alleyne he said placed priority on “God and service to country.”

“He was a man of spirituality, he enjoyed life, and he was a proud man,” he stated.

Roger Davis of the Windward Islands Cricket Umpires Association who also represented the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association described the late Phillip Gregory Alleyne as “a quiet giant.”

“This is indeed a sad occasion, we have lost a quiet giant, Phillip was like an institution…the news of his passing was not only shocking but regrettable, and his memories will always live with us. We take comfort in the fact that the consummate ease and none confrontational manner in which he took on life assignments were worthy attributes which we can adopt,” Davis stated.

His body was laid to rest at the Roseau Roman Catholic Cemetery.

He was 92 years old at the time of his death. Alleyne is the founding member of the Dominica Cricket Umpires Association and Dominica Football Referees Association which he founded in 1968.

He also worked at the Roseau City Council holding several positions and finally ended his career in that institution as Town Clerk until his retirement in 1984 after serving the Council for 35 years.
