Hard work and dedication pays off for Andy Quamie as he receives big Alpha Old-Timers honor on Saturday, July 26th.
The name Andy Quamie is quite familiar in the football circle not just as a club official and head of the defunct premiership clubs of Liberia, but as a workaholic and dedicated official of the global game whose rise to prominence in the FIFA and CAF Match Commissionership has been rapid, near speed of light.
Arguably, Andy is the most improved Match Commissioner Liberia and Africa have ever produced, not on silver platter but on real performance salver.
The senior vice president of Watanga FC, a formidable first tier local club, Quamie took less than it conventionally requires in permeating the walls of CAF and FIFA Match Commissionership on accounts of his brilliance, hard work and dedication.
Today, in spite of the less number of years under his belt as Match Commissioner, Quamie stands gigantic and revered among his colleagues in the comity of African football Nations; representing Liberia in CAF and FIFA first-rate international football duels in different parts of the African Continent.
The Alpha Old-timers Sports Association will this Saturday, Liberia’s Independence Day, honor him in the fashion of a football tournament amongst four teams: The George Weah Legends vs. the Musa Bility Angels and, the TC Gould Red Dragons vs. The Randolph McClain (NOCAL) Strike Force.
The two winners meet in the final on the same day. The Alpha pitch is situated in Zubah town in Paynesville, outside Monrovia. The Alpha Old-timers Sports Association is a social outfit with a conglomeration of former players, government officials, and business people, among others. The Association stresses age limit, not below 35 years.
Alpha’s recognition of Quamie is being lauded by many especially those in the sports arena. Besides his courage to land positives on Liberia’s international image, Quamie is also into humanitarian initiatives. He serves as Executive Secretary of Soccer for Hope, a philanthropic outfit that has donated several items to needy children, students and community members in and out of Monrovia. He along with Mustapha Raji, another football administrator, run the entity.
The honoring program on Saturday July 26 is expected to pull a record attendance including a cross session of dignitaries and members of the LFA and the Fourth Estate.
