RANDY WALDRUM will remain with the Houston Dash, his American women’s professional team, and will not be in charge of Trinidad and Tobago’s senior national women football team for the upcoming Pan Am Games competition to be held next month in Canada. The T&T women will face Colombia, Brazil and Ecuador in the group phase.

American Waldrum was in charge of the Women Soca Warriors last year when they were edged 1-0 on aggregate by Ecuador in a two-leg playoff for the final spot in the 2015 FIFA Women World Cup, to be played in Canada this June.

Waldrum though is contracted by the Dash. Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president Raymond Tim Kee confirmed Waldrum’s omission. Tim Kee also announced that the TTFA had rejected Waldrum’s offer to provide a foreign staff, insisting there must be local input on the coaching staff.

Meanwhile, St Ann’s Rangers women head coach Jason Spence is preparing the women’s team until a permanent replacement is found.
