PAPUA New Guinea Football Association (PNGFA) president John Kapi Natto paid tribute to the outgoing president of Manus Soccer Association, Jack Changau, for his loyalty and undivided support for the past 20 years.
Changau’s reign ended after the association elected Philip Kulwaum as the new president in Lorengau last Friday.
Despite losing the presidency, Changau will continue as a PNGFA executive member until his term expires. Kulwaum said he would not change much, and would retain the vision and platform created by Changau. Lorengau mayor Joseph Kimas thanked Changau for efforts in developing soccer.
As a representative of the Lorengau Urban local-level government area, Kimas said he had been supporting soccer under Changau and would continue to do so under Kulwaum.
“Manus has a lot of competitions, so we must always be prepared,” he said.
Changau thanked everyone for their support during the good and bad times of soccer in Manus.
“I leave the role with a heavy heart and in great sadness, but I will remain as member of the football family,” he said. “I am still around if you need me.”
Changau thanked his family for standing by him and pushing him to bring Manus soccer to where it was now.
