JAMES WOOD TENDERS HIS RESIGNATION FROM THE 1874 BOARD

Last weekend, the Club was advised of James Wood’s resignation from the Board of 1874.  The following communication was received from James….

“It is with a heavy heart that I write to you to tender my resignation from the Board of 1874 with immediate effect.  I have not taken this decision lightly – indeed I have thought about it for several weeks now.  However, I have come to the conclusion that given my current and future work commitments – which are extremely demanding and are likely to remain so for the foreseeable future – I am simply unable to devote the necessary time and effort that my role within the club requires.”

“I would like to say what an honour and privilege it has been to serve on the Trust and more recently the Football Club Board for the last 10 years or so.  What we collectively have achieved during this time – in particular since we formed 1874 – is just truly amazing and is something that we all can and should be immensely proud of.”

“It goes without saying that, irrespective of my resignation, I will continue to support the club in every way I can – you don’t get rid of me that easily!”

The Board is obviously disappointed to have received this news from James however we totally understand his situation and respect his decision. James has undertaken a huge amount of work on behalf of the football club, which we sincerely thank him for and we are very pleased that he will remain active in helping 1874 with its aims going forward.

In light of James’s resignation, the Board will review it’s structure and roles at it’s next meeting.
