Randolph Harris is the President of the Barbados Football Association. He was elected on September 30th, 2012 to serve for a 4 year period when the Barbados Football Association held its Annual General Meeting.
Harris 57, a Sales Manager by profession, has been involved in football since the 1970s, and is a product of the Christ Church league as a player, coach and manager. He was also instrumental in seeing the popular Paradise Football Club being promoted in 1981 to the then Division One of Barbados football as coach and manager.
Randy Harris is also a qualified referee and is best known for his ability to organize three of the most popular football tournaments ever staged in Barbados. This started with the BICO Tournament in 1979, the Carib Beer, CBC Tournament better known as the BESS Tournament from 1989 – 2002 and the LIME Pelican Football Challenge in 2011 and 2012.
Harris has served as a member of the BFA council from as early as 1977 when he was elected as a floor member. In 1979 he became the Assistant General Secretary. He holds the distinction of being the youngest General Secretary in Barbados when he was elevated to that post 1982 at the age of 28, a position he held for seven years.
Mr. Harris was the Manager of the Barbados National Team at the finals of the Shell Caribbean Cup in 1990 during the attempted coup in Trinidad.
In 2002 Harris returned to the BFA again as General Secretary for another two years. This period was marred however when Harris banned from all football by FIFA after he took the BFA to court in a dispute over election procedures. That ban lasted four years from 2003 – 2007.
2010 saw the reemergence of Randolph Harris to the executive council of the BFA when he was re-elected as a floor member and subsequently as President in 2012.
