Baron Watson returned as president of Manchester FA

Baron Watson has been returned unopposed as president of the Manchester Football Association.

Baron Watson has been returned unopposed as president of the Manchester Football Association at the organisation’s Annual General Meeting (Voting Congress).

Watson was first elevated to the post in 2018 after then-president Dalton Wint resigned to take up the General Secretary position at the Jamaica Football Federation.

Watson, who has worked with the Manchester FA for more than 20 years in various capacities — including committee member, technical committee chairman, first vice-president and technical director — was given his own four year mandate by the 12 clubs.

‘I have something to give so I decided that I would look for my own mandate’

— Baron Watson

“I continued and finished Mr Wint’s tenure now I have decided that after two years I can be a benefit to the parish and use my experience and coaching over the years while sitting on the executive for over 15 years and with that background, I have something to give so I decided that I would look for my own mandate and on Sunday [Dec 1] all the delegates gave me that confidence,” Watson told BUZZ.

The new president said structural and administrative changes at the club level will be high on his agenda along with youth development.
