David Butler, the chief executive officer of Digicel Jamaica, signed the condolence book for late Jamaica Football Federation president Captain Horace Burrell on Friday at the JFF headquarters in Kingston.

He was joined by other senior executives of the communication leader and national football sponsor including sponsorship manager Kamal Powell and head of public relations Elon Parkinson.

JFF Director of Operations, PR and Events, Janice Rose-Brown makes a point in discussion with Digicel Jamaica sponsorship manager Kamal Powell (centre) and CEO David Butler. 

Burrell died last week after a short battle with cancer. 

He has been credited with revolutionizing Jamaica's football, with his crowning moment being his leadership of the programme that took the Reggae Boyz to the 1998 World Cup Finals in France,  making Jamaica the first English-speaking Caribbean country to qualify for the event.

Digicel has invested more than US$11 million in the national football proramme since 2003.
