FORMATION of a West Indies Football Board of Control will be discussed in May when the U.K. soccer team arrives in Trinidad to begin a four-week tour of the West Indies during which eight games will be played against Trinidad, British Guiana, Curacao and Surinam.

Trinidad are main supporters of the move for forming such a body and Commander Hayward and Mr. Eric James, president and secretary respectively of the Trinidad Football Association, will lead the discussions on the subject.

Jamaica though not participating in the tournament, have expressed sympathy with the suggestion.
