As everyone knows, Rob Ashcroft decided to step down a few weeks ago, to spend time with family and on his other interests. We would now like to advertise for a new Company Secretary, to help the Club and Board to keep progressing in the right direction. They are big shoes to fill, but Rob has been very kind in offering his guidance and of course, Board members will be on hand to support the new person too.
The Company Secretary plays a key role within the organisation of the Football Club and Society, ensuring that high standards of governance are maintained. As the principal administrator for the Club, the Secretary ensures that the Club functions effectively and will act as the main point of contact between the Board and its Members.
