MASERU – Former Kick4Life Academy football director, Chris Bullock, has been appointed the Lesotho Football Association (LeFA) deputy Secretary General.
The appointment is the first in the association’s history, a development that the football authority views as organizational growth in terms of roping in national football administration expert officers “as we move towards the professionalisation of football in the country, which needs a lot of knowledge and skill.”
Bullock’s appointment follows that of Media Officer, Mikia Kalati, whose full time engagement was similarly a first, in LeFA’s bid to beef up its information dissemination department.
“In the same way, it was also for the first time that the Association appointed a full time media officer and that has brought a lot of expertise and experience with him in that department,” the Association said in a statement.
Bullock brings with him massive football experience having worked for the Kick4life Academy since 2013, he has also served the National Women’s Football Committee as secretary and the Women Super League as chairman.
He holds a BSc Degree in Social Science of Sport and Business Studies from University of Surrey, Roehamton in the United Kingdom.
Meanwhile, LeFA has also announced the departure from the Bambatha Tšita headquarters of Seephephe Matete, whom the Association says requested to be relieved of his duties as National Team Coordinator to pursue his coaching career.
“LeFA has gladly accepted his request and has formally been released with best wishes as one of the most qualifies coaches in the country,” the Association said.
Veteran coach, Lehlohonolo Thotanyana, has also re-joined the Association to work as Coach Educator, per the recommendation of the FIFA; Mojese Matamane has also replaced Mohaila Letseka as the Youth and Grassroots Development Coordinator.
