Raymond Grant was Wednesday evening re-elected president of the Portland Football Association at an extraordinary general meeting of the association.

He returned to the position exactly five years after stepping down to take up the position of general secretary of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

Garfield Fuller, who held the position of president of the PFA for the last five years, was elected first deputy president. Both Grant and Fuller were elected unopposed after nomination, which was opened on September 28 closed with no challenger to both positions.

Grant, who has been serving on the JFF board of directors for 18 consecutive years in three different capacities, thanked Fuller for his sincere support during his stint at the JFF. He also thanked the entire PFA executive council for their loyalty and support to him; and for their continued commitment to the sport and its development within the parish.

Grant is serving his second stint as president, having been first elected in 2007 and serving five consecutive years before being handed the JFF General Secretary position in 2012, the second-highest position in the country's number one sport.

Grant, a former chairman of the Eastern Confederation and member of the Caribbean Football Union Finance Committee, will now return to the JFF board as a director, while turning his immediate attention to the launch of the Portland Coorperative Credit Union Knockout Competition and the Western Union Major League — both scheduled to commence before the end of October.

Grant had announced his resignation from the post of JFF general secretary during his presentation of the General Secretary's Activity Report on September 16 at the JFF Annual General Meeting held at the federation headquarters.
