CIFA appoints new Technical Director

The New Zealand-born glove-man is excited and proud to take on this challenging role and what better way than to come back to his roots and assist with the development of football here in the Cook Islands.
“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to work in my home country and with football, two of the biggest passions in my life,” says Jamieson.
Jamieson captained the national team during its South Pacific Games campaign in August and September and with his football background and experiences, he is prepared to do his best for the benefit of Cook Islands Football.
“I plan to learn about the various programs already in place within the technical department, and progressively implement new and effective programs to improve the standard of both our local and international players and coaches.”
The shot-stopper has represented the Cook Islands for over a decade and also has years of experience coaching goalkeepers with the Wellington-based Capital Football federation in the country of his birth. Tony is an academic and holds a variety of qualifications which includes a double Tertiary degree in Management and Science.
“I really appreciate the trust and confidence that the Cook Islands Football Association have shown in me with this appointment.”
The 37-year-old lived in Rarotonga in 2000 when he first played internationally for the Cook Islands. He lived in Wellington but has links to the Cook Islands through his mother, who hails from Aitutaki, and is proud of his roots.
