Anton Sealey Returned To Office Of President Of The Bahamas Football Association

The Bahamas Football Association held its AGM on October 10th, 2018 at the Ocean view Room of the Breezes Resorts on Cable Beach. In the fiercely contested election, he overcame the challenge of former Vice President Jason McDowall.

Sealey will have a strong supporting cast headed by incumbent Executive Vice President Mrs. Anya James. The race for the five vacant Vice Presidents positions resulted in a slate of first timers springing to the forefront.

Those elected for the first time are Mr. Dion Godet, Radio/ Television Executive, Mr. Sean Thompson Palmer, Educator, Mr. Gavin Christie, Real-estate Executive, Mr. Dwayne Whylly Jr, attorney at law and Mr. Andre Moss, Petroleum Executive Engineer.

The voting resulted in a tie between Mr. Sealey and former board member, Mr. Jason McDowall.Subsequent attempts to break the tie were not successful which led to Club members retiring with a deadlock.Discussions between the candidates this morning, resulted with Mr. McDowall conceding to Mr. Sealey citing the fact that this move was in the best interest of the Association and its members, all of whom are fully committed to working to develop football in The Bahamas in a united fashion. Mr. McDowall also pledged to work closely with Mr. Sealey, who has been at the helm of the Association for 22 years, and the new board members. “We will work together to implement policies which promote and develop "the beautiful game,” as the Bahamas Football Association enters its 51st year.
