Tivoli Gardens football coach, Alvin Shaw, this morning died of suspected heart attack.

The incident reportedly took place on a section of the Chancery Hall main road while Shaw was driving his car to a gym in St Andrew.  

Shaw’s car apparently came to a halt near an embankment after he fell ill.

Shaw took over the head coaching job at Tivoli Gardens from Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey two seasons ago.

He was also the coach of Campion College.

The Jamaica Football Federation has expressed sadness at the passing.

"Alvin, an Advanced Level 11 certified coach, was not only among the first set of coaches to do our courses at the JMMB/JFF/UTech Coaching School in 2009 but was also a top performer in his cohort," said a JFF spokesperson in a release this afternoon.

"He always expressed a desire to learn more and develop his craft. He was a promising coach who had much to give the sport."
