Kennedy blames IFA board

Outgoing Irish FA President Raymond Kennedy is privately seething he and his former Vice President David Martin have been made the scapegoats in Sport Northern Ireland’s hugely critical report into the sacking of former Chief Executive Howard Wells.

Kennedy, who will resign from office at the next Council meeting in September, believes the IFA’s Executive Board should shoulder the blame, having ratified the decision to dismiss Wells.

Kennedy and Martin terminated Wells’s contract, against legal advice, but this still had to be passed by the 11 members on the Board.
