PFAJ Settles Stand-Off With Referees


Chairman of the Professional Football Association of Jamaica, Don Anderson, says only the matter between the JFF and Montego United can prevent the start of the Red Stripe Premier League.

The country’s top league which was originally scheduled to kick-off on September 3 was postponed by the Jamaica Football Federation, JFF.

This, after the referees threatened to withdraw their services due to monies owed from last season.

Montego Bay United boss Orville Powell also threatened to pull his club from the league because of monies owing to them from last season.
