Following Barry’s recent resignation I was asked by my fellow board members to fill the void until the end of the season and at last night’s board meeting have agreed to take on the role going forward.

"As a longtime supporter of the club I have always tried to help the club in any way I can and more recently at board level but now will do my very best to help move the club forward as Chairman. I am also very pleased with the other Board appointments which give us additional experience and passion for the club at board level .
