Madam Seton who has brought so much reform to Women’s football in Liberia will work alongside the Kanizat Ibrahim of Comoros as President.
She joins the President of the Liberia Football Association Mustapha Raji who is also a member of the three-member Standing Committee for Organizing youth football competitions.
The appointment means the CAF leadership headed by Dr. Patrice Motsepe is looking more in direction of Liberians to contribute to the continent’s football growth.
Madam Seton’s appointment is one of the best things that has probably happened to Liberia for women’s football based on the passion and reform she has brought to the game.
Recently she was re-elected EXCOM member unopposed to represent women’s football for another four years.
