Portmore United responds to Ministry of Sports over alleged breach of Disaster Risk Management Act

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Simon Preston

As the Ministry of Sports continues its investigation into the circumstances surrounding two Premier League clubs, Portmore United and Cavalier taking part in unsanctioned practice games recently, the Professional Football Jamaica Limited (PFJL), has weighed in on the matter, noting clubs would "never intentionally do anything to that would adversely affect" their attempts to get the league started.

Coming out of Tuesday evening's board meeting of the PFJL,  director Donovan White in responding to queries from Radio Jamaica Sports, indicated that the matter which was brought to their attention by the Minstry of Sports last Friday, was discussed.

He said "the board was provided assurances that the respective clubs have dispatched responses to the ministry".

Portmore United in their two page response to the Ministry of Sports on November 16, stated in part that they participated in a training session with Cavalier FC on November 11 at the Santos field, the Bell Chung Oval.  

The ministry's letter to the clubs on November 13, had queried whether Portmore participated in a game with Cavalier on November 4.

It’s still unclear what sanctions if any, could be brought against the clubs for breaching the Disaster Risk Management Act.
