FIFA Seeking Life Ban for Former CONCACAF President

IslandStats.com
With the Election of a new CONCACAF President scheduled to take place in a week’s time, news comes that disgraced former CONCACAF President Jeffrey Webb is facing a lifetime ban from football after FIFA's Ethics Committee opened proceedings against him.

An election for the post of President that Webb held is up for grabs between Canada’s Victor Montagliani and Bermuda Football Association President Larry Mussenden.

The 51-year-old former FIFA vice-president admitted one count of racketeering conspiracy, three counts of wire fraud conspiracy and three counts of money laundering conspiracy at the United States District Court in New York in November.

Webb, from the Cayman Islands, is one of the officials targeted by American authorities investigating corruption within FIFA - which was described as a "World Cup of fraud".

He was one of seven people sensationally arrested in Zurich last May, before FIFA's annual Congress.

Now, the adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, chaired by Hans-Joachim Eckert, has been handed his case after a final report submitted by the investigatory chamber.

FIFA will push for a lifetime ban with Webb, who also formerly served as President of the Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), accused of a string of ethics breaches.

"The adjudicatory chamber of the Ethics Committee, chaired by Mr Hans-Joachim Eckert, has opened formal adjudicatory proceedings against Mr Jeffrey Webb based on the final report submitted by the investigatory chamber," a FIFA statement said

"The adjudicatory chamber has carefully studied the report of the investigatory chamber, under the chairmanship of Dr Cornel Borbély, and decided to institute formal adjudicatory proceedings against Mr Webb, formerly the President of CONCACAF, a vice-president of FIFA, a member of the Executive Committee of the Caribbean Football Union and the President of the Cayman Islands Football Association.

"The final report was transmitted to the adjudicatory chamber on 26 April 2016, with a recommended sanction of a lifelong ban from all football-related activities for violations of arts 13, 15, 18, 19 and 21 of the FIFA Code of Ethics.

Guyana President - Our CONCACAF Vote is Precious

IslandStats.com
The race to fill the vacant Presidency of the beleaguered CONCACAF will come to a head in just over a week’s time, as Canadian Victor Montagliani and Bermudian Larry Mussenden go head to head.

The two men, Montagliani and Mussenden, are all current Presidents of the Canada Soccer Association (CSA) and the Bermuda Football Association (BFA) respectively, with ambitions of returning CONCACAF on course after the corruption scandal that saw previous President Jeffrey Webb and his successor Honduran Alfredo Hawit, who has acted as CONCACAF Head following Webb’s sensational arrest in Zurich, Switzerland indicted by US Department of Justice in the ongoing probe.

Guyana as a member of the CFU and by extension CONCACAF, just like all of the other affiliates, will have the opportunity of determining who the next CONCACAF President becomes so therefore their vote could be seen as crucial in choosing the next Head of that Organization.

Traditionally, a country’s vote is in large part premised on the level of support that is promised by the respective candidates vying for the top job, thereby rendering the vote a vital component for collective viability and future development.

It also means that those who lead their respective countries associations have a right to seek broad consensus among their General Council to arrive at the best suited candidate in exchange for the vote.

It must be noted that in-spite of getting the approval of their General Councils for the candidate of choice is no guarantee for support; a President could feel at ease that in the absence of promised assistance, the choice was not independent, but received broad endorsement.

In the past, the act of seeking agreement among affiliates (General Council) was clearly absent considering the overwhelming feedback accumulated.

There were examples of those with the responsibility of conveying our vote to Congresses overlooking the General Council and unilaterally declaring their choice of candidate.

This should not be since Guyana’s vote is as precious as any other nation and should be guided by the input of all the local stakeholders after meeting with them.

It was reported not so long ago in one of the dailies that sitting President of the Guyana Football Federation Wayne Forde was scheduled to meet Montagliani for discussions which is a very good step.

Mussenden has already made it clear that he intends to lobby for the approximate US$190 million seized or confiscated by the US Department of Justice to be used for development programmes.

Forde is quoted as saying, “Our vote for CONCACAF President is as precious as any other.”

Wells Wins Three Huddersfield Town Awards

IslandStats.com
Bermudian striker Nahki Wells wins three awards at Huddersfield Towns end of season ceremony. Wells has been named Huddersfield Town’s 2015/16 Hargreaves Memorial Trophy Player of the Year at the Club’s Annual Awards ceremony this evening.

The Bermudian striker netted three accolades on the evening, adding the Players’ Player of the Year and Golden Boot to the most prestigious accolade too.

Wells was voted the Hargreaves Memorial Trophy Player of the Year by Huddersfield Town fans through a vote held by the Huddersfield Examiner, gaining over 51% of the nominations.

Centre back Joel Lynch finished runner-up with just under 22% of fans’ votes, with central midfielder Dean Whitehead third with just under 8%.

The win is well deserved for the 25 year-old striker, who has netted 18 goals in all competitions to top the Club’s scoring charts.

In particular, Wells has thrived since Head Coach David Wagner arrived at the Club in November. 14 of his goals have come in just 31 appearances under the German, compared with 25 goals in 75 Town appearances beforehand.

Wells Injured im Huddersfield Hammering

IslandStats.com
Bermudian striker Nahki Wells’ hopes of hitting his 20-goal target this season were dealt a severe blow when he was replaced at half-time with a knee injury as Huddersfield Town crashed to a 4-0 defeat in an English Championship match at Bristol City.

The injury has now left open to question whether Wells will be fit enough to play for Bermuda in their Caribbean Cup second-round matches.

Head coach David Wagner described it as Huddersfield’s worst performance of the season.

He disclosed after the game that 25-year-old Wells’ knee injury could keep him out of the final match of the season against Brentford, Wells has scored 18 goals so far this term.

Huddersfield slipped to 19th place, one below Bristol City, but are well clear of the relegation zone.

The Bermuda Football Association were hoping Wells would make himself available for Bermuda’s Caribbean Cup second-round matches against French Guiana and Dominican Republic in June.

Bermuda fans would remember during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia campaign a year ago Wells sat out of the matches against Guatemala.

Bermuda take on French Guiana on June 1st at the Stade Municipal Dr Edmard Lame in Cayenne before returning to the island to face Dominican Republic at the National Sports Centre on June 7th.

Dominican Republic, who are ranked 18 places above Bermuda in the FIFA world rankings, finished top of their qualifying group on goal difference after losing 2-1 away to Curaçao before a 2-0 victory over Barbados.

Bermuda advanced from the preliminary round after finishing as runners-up on goal difference behind group winners French Guiana, who they defeated 2-1 here in March. Cuba failed to advance after beating Bermuda at home before losing away to French Guiana.

NAHKI WELLS – HUDDERSFIELD

Jonathan Kodjia took his goal tally for the season to 20 with two goals as Bristol City thrashed Nahki Wells and his Huddersfield Town teammates 4-0 in their final home Sky Bet Championship game of the season.

Joe Bryan and the impressive Lee Tomlin also got on the scoresheet as Lee Johnson's team celebrated safety from relegation with an emphatic display, despite being without several first choice players.

RAI SIMONS – CHESTERFIELD

Rai Simons watched from the bench as Chesterfield confirmed their place in League One next season with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Bury at the Proact Stadium.

A first-half penalty from Jay O'Shea and a deflected Lee Novak strike put Chesterfield in charge before Dan Gardner sealed the win they needed to avoid relegation.

REGGIE LAMBE – MANSFIELD

Ollie Palmer scored the goal that gave Leyton Orient a 1-0 win against Reggie Lambe and his Mansfield Town teammates in the League Two contest at the Matchroom Stadium.

Former Mansfield striker Palmer scored on 49 minutes when he rose to meet a Lloyd James free-kick and send the ball into the corner of the net.

Both teams had golden opportunities to break the deadlock in the first half.

However after the break, Mansfield were denied a point by the woodwork when Lambe slammed a drive against the crossbar.
