Coach Donaldson Bids Farewell After Historic Women’s World Cup Run with Jamaica

Lorne Donaldson, the coach who led Jamaica’s ‘Reggae Girlz’ to their historic knockout phase appearance in the Women’s World Cup, will not be renewing his contract with the team.

The announcement was made by the Jamaican Football Federation (JFF) on Friday, leaving fans and supporters curious about the future of the team.

Jamaica’s women’s national soccer team had shown remarkable progress under Donaldson’s guidance, reaching the round of 16 in their second-ever appearance at the prestigious Women’s World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand.

Despite their impressive performance, they faced a tough loss to Colombia in the knockout stage.


In a joint statement, the JFF expressed their gratitude to Coach Lorne Donaldson for his dedicated service to Jamaican football.

The statement read, “The JFF wishes to place on record our thanks to Lorne for his services to Jamaica’s football over the years, and specially making us proud at the recent Women’s World Cup.

“We are confident that he will have unlimited success in his future endeavors and wish him the very best.”

Donaldson’s departure comes less than a month before the Jamaican Women’s National Soccer Team is set to compete in the CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup qualifying.

The JFF has assured fans that they will act swiftly to secure a competent coaching staff to ensure the team’s continued success.
