Mitchell tackles Speid for KSAFA presidency
AFFILIATES of the Kingston and St Andrew Football Association (KSAFA) will decide to either retain or vote out its current executive body headed by President Rudolph Speid, at its 47th annual general meeting which will be held on August 4 in Kingston.
Speid, who has been the head of KSAFA since 2008, will be challenged for the presidency by Leon Mitchell.
There will also be nominations for the post of second vice-president, general secretary, assistant general secretary, treasurer and assistant treasurer.
Other members running on the Speid slate are Ricky Chin for first vice-president, Jacqueline Cowan and Peter Higgins for second vice-president and general secretary, respectively, Herman Cruickshank for assistant general secretary, Errol Howlett, for treasurer, and Elvis Jenkins for assistant treasurer.
The incumbents will have to deal with a strong challenge from the Mitchell-led contingent that includes Carvel Stewart for first vice-president, Carlton Dennis for second vice-president, Richard Nathan for general secretary, Ansel Lee as assistant general secretary, Brian Rose, treasurer, and Winston Isle for assistant treasurer.
A total of 29 nominations were submitted. However, two were disqualified as nominations for both slates were submitted by a single club, which is not permitted. Team Speid received 18 nominations, while Mitchell's team got nine.
