CFU President Randy Harris is congratulated by CFU General Secretary Neil Cochrane after being officially elected to the post. Looking on is Eric Labrador of Puerto Rico.

Randy Harris has received a commanding nod of approval from the members of Caribbean Football Union (CFU) for the post of CFU President after his brief tenure acting in the post following Gordon Derrick’s departure last year.

The election for the position was held today in Moscow at the CFU’s Ordinary Congress where Harris was challenged by Hillaren Frederick of the USVI for the top post. The members voted 27-3 in favour of Harris for him to officially assume the post of CFU President for the next two years.

This accomplishment comes a mere three hours after he Harris, was elected by acclamation as the Vice President of Concacaf – Caribbean in the same room at the Concacaf 33rd Ordinary Congress.

Harris who is also President of the Barbados Football Association explained that he was very nervous, a feeling which comes over him at times like this, but, his jovial demeanour would return after being announced the winner to room full of applause.

After the announcement he thanked all the members for their support and pledge to continue to reunite the union. The new CFU President also took the time to acknowledge his opponent in the election Frederick.

In his first task as the official President he asked the members to acknowledge a moments silence in honour of Captain Horace Burrell, the former Jamaica President and Concacaf Vice President who passed away just over a year ago.

Glen Ettienne of Dominica was also elected for the vacant post of member. He defeated Fabrice Baly of French Saint Martin 21-7 for that post on the Board.
