Former national technical director Rene Simoes will be the main speaker at the Captain Horace Burrell Inaugural Guest Lecture at the Rex Nettleford Multi-Purpose Room at the University of the West Indies on Monday.
This is part of a number of activities planned by the Jamaica Football Federation in celebration of the life and work of its late president Captain Horace Burrell.
For this session at 1pm national teams coaches as well as coaches from the Premier League, Manning and DaCosta Cup, Super and Major Leagues are specially invited and will follow a 10am press conference.
Simoes, who guided the Reggae Boys to becoming the first team from the English speaking Caribbean to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals, will undertake a special training session with Jamaica’s national Under 17 and Under 20 girls’ teams at 4pm at the JFF Technical Centre.
All this ahead of the thanksgiving service for Captain Burrell next Wednesday at 10am at the National Arena.
Captain Burrell, who had been ailing for the past year, passed away on June 6 at the John Hopkins Oncology Centre in Baltimore where he was undergoing treatment.
