Butcher clears air on BFA rule


Share post:

FORMER COUNCIL MEMBER of the Barbados Football Association (BFA) Roland Butcher wants to clear up any misconceptions regarding his call for the BFA to amend its rules to allow more than six overseas players in a club.

During an interview with NATIONSPORT yesterday, the head coach at the Academy of Sport, University of the West Indies Cave Hill campus, said he had no issue with the rule as it stood, but thought it unfair that only six players from other Caribbean territories were allowed to play. 

“We have no objection to the rule of six players playing in the team and on the field at the same time. CARICOM countries who make up CARICOM are the ones who fund the University of the West Indies across the Caribbean,” he said.
