Professional Football Jamaica Limited, the new body that will take charge of the affairs of clubs in the National Premier League, has appointed certified Consultant and Business leadership coach, Arlene Martin, to the post of acting General Manager.
This was one of the revelations of the first board meeting since the appointment of the three independent directors and businessman Chris Williams as chairman.
The board says the appointment of Martin is the latest move in their thrust to continue strengthening its administrative structure in preparation for the improved commercial success of the National Premier League.
Meanwhile, the PFJL and the Jamaica Football Federation are meeting this week before making another attempt at getting approval from health authorities to get the new season underway.
In October, the PFJL through the JFF submitted comprehensive protocol documents to the Ministry of Health.
The protocols are designed to mirror CONCACAF’s model that draws on best practices from clubs and leagues around the world.
The measures cover the playing of games, club protocols and player lifestyle protocols.
A tentative date of November 14 was set for the start of the new league season.
The rescheduled December 6 date was also set aside with an alternative looking unlikely.
