Former president of the Dominica Football Referees Association (DFRA) Ericson Degallaire is the new Secretary of the Dominica Football Association (DFA).
Degallaire replaces Clifford “Bala” Celaire, who was sacked by President Glen Etienne.
Degallaire is also a former general secretary of the DFRA and is described as someone who has a long track record in sporting involvement.
He is currently a qualified cricket umpire.
In accepting the position he stated that he will give his “best as a servant of the sport.”
In making the announcement, public relations officer (pro) of the DFA Gerald George explained that the constitution of the DFA provides that the president select “a secretary that he is comfortable working with.”
George said that Celaire would remain in the post of “Women’s football coordinator”.
“He has done a great job in that area and we will want him to remain and concentrate his efforts in that regard,” George said.
He disclosed that the decision was unanimously endorsed by the DFA board.
