Announcement from Phil Turner:
I have decided that the time has come for me to pass on the baton of the Club’s Chairmanship to someone else and I am delighted that, with the Board’s unanimous approval, Andrew Long has agreed to accept the appointment.
In the relatively short time he has been with us Andrew’s knowledge and commercial experience has been of enormous benefit and I am sure that under his guidance and leadership the Club will go from strength to strength.
I have always believed that I would know when the time was right to stand down and in Andrew, I am certain that I have found the right person to take over.
His position has been strengthened with the appointment of four new Directors, Danny Laws, Mark Morsley, Ben Davies and Ian Brown who will be joining Richard Instance and Darren Theobald. Each of the Directors has been appointed to head up a specific area of responsibility and as a team they all have the talent and commitment to manage the development of the club as we plan for the future.
I am sure that everyone connected to the Club will wish Andrew and his new Board every success as he takes on this important responsibility.
Having passed the Chairmanship to Andrew I have been offered and have accepted the position of Club President. I consider this to be a great honour and I will do my utmost to ensure that the Club continues to develop and successfully move forward into the future.
