Six SKNFA clubs lose voting rights

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): The Ordinary Congress of the St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association Sunday was not all smooth sailing. Of the 32 member clubs of the SKNFA, 26 were eligible to vote. According to the SKNFA General Secretary Stanley Jacobs, six were ineligible to vote because they had not participated in association sanction competitions for the past two consecutive years. These clubs are: Parsons United F.C., Rastafari Structure Football Club, Sandy Point Amateur Football Association, Old Road Strikers F.C., Defence Force Football Club and Blackburns F.C. Based on this, these clubs lose their voting rights according to the constitution of the association, Mr. Jacobs explained. 

However, this was a sticking point throughout the meeting, as delegates from Sandy Point All Stars F.C. and Old Road Strikers, two of the clubs that lost their voting rights, insist the matter should have been brought before congress before their voting rights were revoked. The Sandy Point representative sought to get the matter on the agenda to no avail. 

The aggrieved clubs got some support from other delegates including from honorary member of the SKNFA Stanley Franks and former president Peter Jenkins. Old Road Strikers claimed they participated in a junior competition and as such should not have lost their voting rights. That was denied by the SKNFA. In the end, president Anthony Johnson said the clubs were informed a month and a half before that they lost their voting rights.
