(Antigua Observer) General Secretary of the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) Gordon Derrick, has rebuffed claims he deliberately ignored a request from football dad, Devon Joseph, to write a letter of recommendation for his son and national youth footballer, Demiah Joseph.
According to Joseph, he had requested the letter prior to his son leaving for the Martin Luther King Jr. High School in the USA but said the General Secretary had promised to reach out to him but never did.
“It was after the election and I’ve come to the conclusion, I could be wrong, that it was because of the campaign, and as I said, I could be wrong, but I still believe it’s that. My son is now in school overseas and I want to say thanks to Debu [Rolston Williams] because I went to Debu myself and asked Debu to do the letter and I didn’t have to wait on them,” he said.
Hitting back however, Derrick who furnished the Daily Observer with a copy of the emails, said it was Joseph who neglected to furnish him with the necessary information requested.
