Portmore United Football Club (PUFC) has appointed Philip Williams as its new coach to replace Lenworth Hyde, who resigned on Monday for personal reasons.

Williams will also take on the role of technical coordinator for the youth and grassroots programmes.

A release from the Premier League club said that Williams will be required to lead the PUFC technical department in furtherance of the club’s strategic objectives.

Williams is currently the head coach of the St Andrew Technical High School football teams and was recently head coach of Tivoli Gardens Football Club.

“I’m elated with this opportunity to join the Portmore United FC family and be given the tasks of leading holistically, the club’s technical development,” said Williams. “This was a very easy decision for me as the vision and philosophy of Portmore United FC, align well with my own beliefs and aspirations. I’m looking forward to achieving great things during my stint at this organization”.

Portmore United FC director, Supt. Steve Brown said, “Portmore United FC looks forward to the technical leadership of Mr. Philip Williams as we continue our mission of rebuilding our various football programmes, negatively impacted by the COVID pandemic over the past two years. Indeed, we are very excited by the possibilities ahead.”

The release from PUFC further added that it “wishes to thank Mr. Hyde for his contribution to the club’s football development and wishes him all the best in his future endeavors.”

Portmore United are struggling in the 2022 season of the Jamaica Premier League, powered by Digicel. They are ninth with 16 points in the 12-team competition being led by Waterhouse and Dunbeholden FC with 39 points each.
