The Jamaica Football Federation, JFF, say they are far advance in their search for a head coach for the national senior women’s football team.

The position became vacant after the JFF decided not to renew the contract of Lorne Donaldson as the head coach of the Reggae Girlz.

In a release, the JFF said. “The Jamaica Football Federation is pleased to announce that various potential candidates have been identified to fill the head coaching vacancy with the Senior Women’s National Team.

The release went on to say, “The interviewing process will begin this week, as we have received a number of applications from experienced and qualified individuals.”

It also said, “Soon, a short list will be selected for final interviews. Importantly, this also includes the re-engagement of members of the coaching and technical staff.”

The Reggae Girlz are set to face Guatemala and Panama in a home and away fixture in the CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup qualifiers, later this month.

Football’s local governing body went on to say, “The JFF is committed to ensuring that the women’s program is given the best opportunity to succeed and continue the significant accomplishments that have brought much pride to Jamaica.”
