Former Leeward Islands Batsman Enoch Lewis secured another two years at the helm of the Leeward Islands Cricket Board as President.

The Antiguan, who is also a Director of Cricket West Indies, retained the position which he has held for the past six years in a six to two vote at the Annual General Meeting at the Cortland Hotel on Saturday afternoon.

His challenger, Carlisle Powell who was the Vice President lost not only the election for President but also his position as Vice President of the organisation.

Lewis will have Oliver Macdonna of Anguilla as his deputy.

Some highlights of the achievements by Lewis during his tenure as President were that he has provided transformational, strategic and visionary leadership by implementing several policies and procedures that have benefited the body.

Remarkably, he played a pivotal role in helping the body repay approximately EC $500,000 in debt that was inherited from previous administrations.

He has also doubled the number of teams participating in the West Indies regional tournaments from three to six, with the addition of the Women’s Under 19, Women’s Senior Team and Men’s Under 17s.

His initiates have also paid dividends with the rise of Jewel Andrew, Nathan Edward, Shawnisha Hector, Jahzara Claxton and MiKyle Louis.

Other notable achievements were that he assisted in re-establishing the LICB as a respected member of Cricket West Indies and in the wider community, and has played a major role as Director of CWI in ensuring the Leeward Islands hosted its fair share of international matches and regional tournaments.

Finally, the conceptualisation and introduction of the annual Gold Jacket Award Ceremony was by him and has seen the likes of Mr Elquemedo Willett MBE, Dr Sir Anderson M E Roberts, Dr Sir Isaac Vivian Richards, and Mr Jim Allen.
