Ken Hewitt, the vice-chairman of the Welsh Rugby Union, has today (Monday) won a District A election to continue as their representative and retain his place on the Board of the WRU.
He received 48 votes against 15 for Steve Lewis, the former Chief Executive of the WRU.
Ken Hewitt said: "I'm delighted to be continuing to serve as a Board member. It's an honour for me personally and it shows the support the clubs have for the Board at the moment as we take our game forward."
WRU chairman David Pickering said: "It's extremely healthy that people of calibre put their names forward for election. However, the outstanding service that the vice-chairman of the WRU has given to this District over the years has been recognised by the overwhelming support of the clubs of District A."
