Director of Football Role Removed from the Club's Board

10 June 2021

The Club can confirm that role of Director of Football has been removed from the Club's Board of Directors structure.

Tommy Widdrington will still serve as a Director and will be in charge of outgoing loan deals and will be tasked with ensuring the strategic vision of the first-team is adhered to at both U23s level and within the Club’s Academy.

The move has been made in light of the Club's recent relegation.

Earlier this week, Chris Gibson MBE was appointed to the Club's Board of Directors, as a non-executive Director.

Club President Wael Al Qadi said, "As a result of our relegation and the position we currently find ourselves in, Joey and his team are now fully in charge of the recruitment process. We have therefore eliminated the role of Director of Football.

“Tommy will remain on the Club's Board and will be in charge of creating a loan department, that will be tasked with establishing relationships with other clubs.

"Tommy will also be responsible for mirroring the first-team philosophy, that will be set by the first-team Manager, across the Academy structure.”
