President of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) Oliver Camps has been reappointed Chairman of CONCACAF’s Finance Committee.

The appointment was revealed at the CONCACAF Executive Committee meeting in New York earlier this month. Camps, a former T&T team manager, will serve the position for the period ending June 2006.

Camps said he was anticipating serving for another term after the news came.

“I have accepted the appointment and it is my intention to continue serving in a professional manner. The task is not a new one to me so it’s just a matter of ensuring that CONCACAF’s financial administration is properly reviewed and well in place,” Camps said.

The Finance Committee is responsible for reviewing the financial administration of the Confederation; reviewing budgets prepared by the General Secretariat and make any necessary reports to the Executive Committee; reviewing the Auditors' report.

In related news, CONCACAF President Jack Warner expressed deepest sympathy towards the family of former Jamaican midfielder Peter Cargill who died in an automobile accident in Jamaica on Saturday evening.

“His passing is an irreparable loss to his family, country, club and the football fraternity in the Caribbean as well as in CONCACAF,” said Warner. “On behalf of CONCACAF and the Caribbean Football Union in my capacity as President of both organizations, I record our deepest condolence to his family and relatives.”

Cargill, who was 41 and coach of Waterhouse Football Club, was on his way to Montego Bay for Sunday's Jamaica Wray & Nephew National Premier League match against Wadadah when the tragedy occurred. Cargill followed fellow Jamaican midfielder Steve ‘Shorty’ Malcolm who died in a car accident which also injured Theodore Whitmore in February 2001. Jamaican Winston Anglin too, died in an accident last September while T&T forward Mickey Trotman also lost his life on the road in October, 2001.
