Jamaican senior women’s football team head coach, Hue Menzies, is threatening to walk off the job if he and his technical staff are not paid.

In a letter addressed to the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) last week, Menzies and members of his technical staff have indicated that in the absence of payment owed to them by the body, they will not be a part of the programme going forward beyond Wednesday, September 25, when they expect payment to be received.

Jamaica's Reggae Girlz are set for Olympic qualifiers which run from September 30 - October 8, but members of the team have also threatened, on social media, not to play until they receive full payment contractually owed to them. They have however received half of the payment, with the JFF promising the other later this month.
