Bartica Football Association elects new executive
Alden Marslowe is the new President of the Bartica Football Association (BFA) following elections last Monday in the Region Seven mining community.
The elections, supervised by the Guyana Football Federation (GFF), saw the Marslowe-led slate defeating the slated headed by Michael Dos Santos. In an invited comment, Marslowe was in high praise for his team and supporters and said he was humbled to be tasked with this great undertaking.
“It is indeed an honour to assume this responsibility of leading the charge towards the revival of the sport at Bartica. With the many broad shoulders at the wheel, the Association can only go in the direction of ultimate success. Bartica will start scoring goals again, soon.”
Following a lull of football activities and the disintegration of the Executive Committee, a ‘Resuscitation Working Group’ was established in May 2018, comprising nine members, including Marslowe and some members of the new executive.
During their tenure, the group successfully executed the Independence Cup Championship from May 13 – 26, 2018.
The winning team is as follows: Alden Marslowe – President, Elwes Jones – First Vice President, Kenneth Edwards – Second Vice President, Carmel Williams – Third Vice President, Arita Embleton – Secretary ad Kwesi Jacobs – Treasurer and Michelle Jeffery – Assistant Secretary/Treasurer. The Committee Members are Sherwin Da Silva, Curtis Joseph, Terrence Williams, Vince Hopkinson and Randy Adams.
