St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Anthony Johnson was re-elected president of the St. Kitts Nevis Football Association (SKNFA) on Sunday evening at the Association’s General Congress held at the St. Kitts Marriott Resort. Johnson was able to fend off challenges from presidential candidates Franklin Maitland and former president Peter Jenkins. Of the 26 eligible votes from member clubs present at the Congress, Johnson garnered 15 votes, two more than what was required to win the presidency. Peter Jenkins had seven votes and Maitland four votes.
Others elected and re-elected Sunday evening are: Alistair Edwards as 1st Vice President winning with 15 votes as opposed to Dennison Paul’s one vote and Leon Natta’s nine votes.
