08 Jun LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION MOURNS CAPTAIN BURRELL
Kingston, Jamaica, June 6, 2017: Leader of the Opposition, Dr Peter Phillips is saddened by news of the death of Captain Horace Burrell, President of the Jamaica Football Federation.
Dr Phillips says Jamaica will remain grateful to Captain Burrell, who, as the head of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF), believed in the potential of our national players and took Jamaica’s game to the global playing field. It was this fervent belief in our potential, which culminated in our successful 1998 FIFA World Cup campaign.
He said Burrell made a significant contribution to national development through football and the exposure of our players in global football competition, and he will be missed.
It is with deep sadness that I express my condolences to Captain Burrell’s family and friends, and to the Reggae Boyz and entire JFF family.
