David John-Williams will be set for battle, with three new vice presidents from the ones who supported him back in 2015, when the T&T Football Association AGM and Election of officers are held on November 24.
Contacted on Tuesday John-Williams, the incumbent president said he was still undecided whether he would face re-election and had until midnight Tuesday to make his decision.
However, Guardian Media Sports was reliably informed that the controversial former W Connection Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will be bidding for another four-year term in office, with his nominated vice presidents Colin Partap, the Central Football Association (CFA) Representative on the T&TFA Board, Selby Browne- who is the representative for the Veteran Football Foundation (VFF) and Anthony Moore, the president of the Tobago Football Association (TFA).
His team after discussion and agreement decided to replace Ewing Davis, Joanne Salazar and Allan Warner, all of whom won handsomely at the last elections at the VIP Lounge of the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo.
Since then, both Warner and Salazar resigned their positions and John-Williams has survived many calls from stakeholders and the general football fraternity to step down because of the state of the sport financially and otherwise.
John-Williams' slate will be contested by the United T&T FA being led by Williams Wallace, who is also president of the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), Clynt Taylor, Sam Phillips and Susan Joseph-Warrick.
Meanwhile businessman Shymdeo Gosine, who was openly supportive of the United T&TFA group when it was launched three months ago, is now throwing his support behind a new team being headed by Richard Ferguson, the Terminix La Horquetta Rangers Director who has been behind Ascension's funding of the Pre-season Invitational Football Tournament, and the Terminix Super League.
That slate comprises Raymond Thom of Police FC, Eddie Dean (Club Sando) and Gosine.
