Another bail application will be submitted in the St Andrew Parish Court in Jamaica on Tuesday for Danny Benjamin.
Benjamin, the equipment manager of the Antigua and Barbuda National football team who is facing drug trafficking charges, was denied bail last week.
The President of the Antigua and Barbuda Football Association is Everton Batow Gonsalves.

Benjamin, along with the Head coach of the team Derrick “Pretty Boy” Edwards were both arrested at the Norman Manley International Airport as they were preparing to leave the island.
Edwards was granted bail in the sum of 4,297 EC dollars.
Meantime there have been calls on social media for supporters to boycott the football matches until those who are believed to be responsible for the drugs come forward.
However, Gonzalves believes that this is not the way to go.

The football association was also being criticized on social media for reportedly abandoning the officials in Jamaica.
