Cedella Marley appointed ambassador for the National Women’s Football Program

Our good friend Cedella Marley has been appointed ambassador for the Jamaican National Women’s Football Program.  Football was such an integral part of her father’s life.  If Bob was not rehearsing, recording, or performing, he was playing football.  As Marley friend and former JBC broadcaster Dermot Hussey once told me:

“I saw him prepare  for the Natty Dread  tour, rather like how a prizefighter prepares, eating right, playing a lot of soccer every afternoon in the yard of 56, as a conditioning for his wind and stamina.  It was a ritual.  During a pickup game of football, which Bob played vigorously, if you tackled him badly, he would reciprocate  immediately.”

During a press conference held yesterday morning at the Jamaica Football Federation, JFF President Capt. Horace Burrell announced that Cedella Marley has been appointed ambassador for the National Women’s Football Program. In his announcement Capt. Burrell spoke of the Reggae Girlz skill and talent and his belief that bringing the internationally known CEO of Tuff Gong International on board will help to garner the support and awareness that the team needs to advance to the finals of the Women’s World Cup in Canada 2015. He noted that he himself was impressed by the enthusiasm and passion Cedella has already started to bring to her new role.
