Hubert Busby Re-appointed as Head Coach of Jamaica’s Women’s National Team

Former coach Hubert Busby has been re-appointed as the man in charge, marking his return for a second stint with the team.

The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) confirmed Busby’s re-hiring, stating that it followed recommendations by the Technical Committee and was the outcome of careful consideration and due process.

Busby previously held the position from 2020-2021 before being removed amidst allegations of misconduct dating back to his time with the Vancouver Whitecaps in 2011.

Following the allegations, the JFF sought FIFA’s assistance in conducting a comprehensive investigation.


In a statement released on Friday, the Federation revealed that FIFA had cleared Mr. Busby of any wrongdoing.

The decision to re-appoint him was justified by his extensive experience and knowledge of the squad, making him the ideal candidate to lead the team through its next phase of development.

Under Busby’s leadership, the team is set to face Brazil in two international friendlies scheduled for June 1 and June 4 in Brazil.

This move sees interim head coach Xavier Gilbert stepping down from his role to revert to his previous position as national assistant coach.

The squad named for the upcoming friendlies features a core group of players who made history by advancing to the second round of the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Notable names include goalkeeper Rebecca Spencer, Kayla McKenna, Chantelle and Allyson Swaby, Konya Plummer, and Denesha Blackwood, among others.
