(CNS): One of Cayman’s football administrators has been appointed as the Technical Development Officer for the CONCACAF region.  Marcos Tinoco, CIFA’s Acting Technical Director and Administrator who also served as the national coach from 2003 to 2007 and from 2010 to 2014 in several official capacities will, in his new job, be working presenting best practices in technical development and managing FIFA’s player, coaching and development initiatives in the region.  “I am happy to serve the region and continue to give back to the sport,” Tinoco said.

Tinoco is joined by Former Trinidad and Tobago Technical Director Anton Corneal and FIFA Consultant Rodrigo Kenton on the FIFA Development Office in the CONCACAF region.

“The appointment is designed to help promote and develop the game in the region. I am grateful to the Cayman Islands Football Association for the opportunity work in a place that became my home. I will miss the daily interaction with players, coaches and officials but in my new role I will never be too far away.”

CIFA First Vice President Bruce Blake described Tinoco as a trusted and valuable member of CIFA’s team.

“His contribution to player development and football administration in the Cayman Islands cannot be measured and is greatly appreciated. We look forward to receiving his advice and guidance in his new role,” added Blake.
