There will be no change of the guard in the vice presidency at the Barbados Football Association (BFA). 

Captain Al Walcott was returned to the position for the next four years after sweeping to a resounding victory at the annual general meeting on Sunday night at the Wildey Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Sports Complex. 

The 58-year-old Walcott received 73 votes out of a possible 134, with attorney at law Rasheed Belgrave, his closest challenger, scoring 38. 

BFA chairman of referees committee Barney Callender secured 18 while former general secretary Chris Graham got three votes.

The junior vice president and executive board members are still to be elected. (AGB)

Instead of an announcement via the Throne Speech, should Barbadians decide via referendum whether the country becomes a republic?
