Wilson thanked the executive and clubs for allowing him to lead the association for the past four plus years after serving as Secretary prior to taking up the top post.
He encouraged the new executive and clubs to continue working as a team to further advance the growth of the body but most importantly, the players. Gratitude was also expressed to President Wayne Forde and the Guyana Football Federation for its unflinching support towards the advancement of the game in the EBFA.
