Dennis Brown honoured to serve as new president of Bermuda Football Coaches Association
Dennis Brown says it is an honour to serve as the Bermuda Football Coaches Association’s newest president.
The highly decorated former player and coach was appointed to the post during the association’s Annual General Meeting in November and is keen to build upon the foundation laid by predecessor Richard Todd who opted to step down.
“It’s a great honour to represent the Bermuda Football Coaches Association as the president and for the membership to have confidence in me to lead and serve them,” Brown told The Royal Gazette.
“I was actually going to step down from the Executive Committee but with an actual new committee coming in, I looked at continuity to carry on what had been implemented under Richard Todd.
“My term is for two years, a term which was amended by the members at the AGM, which would give the president more time to carry on what has been started and implement more pathways and learning for our coaches.
“I am looking to bow out after my two-year tenure but impart all my coaching knowledge on the person who will eventually take over.”
Brown is one of three changes on the association’s executive committee as Aaron Denkins and Juma Mouchette have replaced Maceo Dill and Danvers Seymour Jr.
Denkins, the Dandy Town coach and technical director, has been appointed as vice-president and Mouchette as a committee member.
Thaaqib Talbot remains as secretary, Omar Shakir as treasure and Larry Smith, Derek Stapley, Tracee Seymour, Khomeini Talbot and Tiffany Hayward as executive committee members.
The BFCA was formed in November of 2013 with the aim of developing of a pool of qualified coaches, cultivating an environment of continuous learning, assisting any organisation in lobbying for the improvement of football facilities and the atmosphere in which the game is conducted, and to lobby to make coaching viable as a part- and/or full-time profession in Bermuda.
Among its founding members are former West Ham striker Clyde Best, former Bermuda Football Association president Richard Calderon and national coaches Carlton Dill and Andrew Bascome.
