THE antiquated and dilapidated National Stadium has a new superintendent from this week.
Long-standing Senior Youth Commissioner in the Youth Development Programme and former policeman Ivor Worrell has been chosen to take over the management of the deteriorating Waterford facility.
Worrell, who began duties yesterday in an acting capacity pending an official appointment, will fill the void created by the retirement of former West Indies fast-bowling legend Joel Garner.
He takes over from Wayne Smith, who was acting in the position for a short period.
At the start of the New Year, a prominent athletics coach was linked to the post but the likely appointment was put on hold.
