TRINIDADIAN Austin 'Jack' Warner was last Saturday re-elected president of the Caribbean Football Union, at the CFU's eleventh Congress which took place at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston.

Warner will serve his third four year term. He was first elected to the post in 1985. A vice-president of FIFA, Warner left Jamaica yesterday for Zurich, Switzerland where he will attend a special meeting of football's governing body.

Others elected to the CFU's Executive were James Rugard of Guadeloupe who will serve as first vice-president, and Jamaica's Horace Burrell who occupies the post of second vice-president. Like Warner both were returned. Harold Taylor of Trinidad and Tobago is the new general secretary. He replaces his long serving compatriot Ivan Barrow who chose to step down after ten years in the post.

The CFU's Executive Committee comprises Stanley Franks of St. Kitts, Joseph Urselet of Martinique (both re-elected), Guyanese Colin Klass and Dr. Delano Bean of Dominica.
