Former Jamaica Cricket Association President Calls For Coach To Go

Winless West Indies Put Coach Under Scrutiny AgainTime is up for Jamaica’s Scorpions coach Junior Bennett, according to former President of the Jamaica Cricket Association (JCA) Paul Campbell.

In light of Jamaica’s poor performance in the current 4-day competition, Campbell has called for Bennett to be sacked.

After leading Jamaica to a string of regional 4 day and limited overs titles, the team has endured a string of poor results under Bennett’s guidance for the past three years.

Campbell, who was speaking on HITZ 92 FM’s sports current affairs program ‘Sports Grill’  earlier this week,  was in no doubt as to the direction in which the authorities should go.

“I will be very blunt to say to you that whereas Junior Bennett has done well and I commend him, it is time for a new dispensation, it’s time for a new person to take charge. Like any international sport, what you see happening is that after a period of time you see persons who are failing, then you look out for a new thought, new application, new dispensation overall; it’s time for that,” said Campbell who served as JCA President from October 2008 – early 2011.

Bennett, who took over coaching duties with the senior national team in 2007, was relieved of his duties in 2010 before being reinstated the following year.
