Vice President of the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA), Michael Carr has tendered his resignation to the Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA).
This is according to reports that the Potters Football Club president, who now resides abroad, wrote to both the ABFA and the Potters FC last week, informing them of his decision to leave the posts.
President of the ABFA, Everton Gonsalves, in accordance with the association’s constitution, is charged with appointing a replacement for Carr. The FA president’s appointment would serve until the body’s next General Congress which is due on or before December 20 this year.
It had long been reported that Carr had migrated to the US, leaving the post vacant and that the FA was actively seeking a suitable replacement.
Two potential challengers, Keithroy Black, who is president of the Tryum FC and Joel Rayne, a former executive member, have so far contended for the post of president. Rayne is also a member of the Potters FC. They are hoping to dethrone the incumbent and former national player, Gonsalves.
Last week, outspoken football advocate, Devon Joseph, also made public his desire to contest the elections.
A former referee, Joseph said he will however not contest the association’s top spot nor will he run for the first vice president position.
Gonsalves is seeking a third consecutive term in office, stating that his intention is to continue building on what he has achieved thus far.
