Bristol Rovers Football Club can confirm that Martyn Starnes has resigned as CEO and Director and we have mutually agreed that he will leave the football club on 30 November 2021.
We would like to place on record our thanks to Martyn for all of his hard work, loyalty and dedication over the past three and a half years, especially for his determination in overseeing the delivery of a first class training facility for the first team during the pandemic. He departs with the best wishes of the club and the best of luck in his future endeavours.
“For personal reasons I feel it is the right time for me to move on but I’d like to sincerely thank Wael Al Qadi for the opportunity to work for a genuine family and community based club to which he has made and continues to make an extraordinary commitment. I’ve enjoyed an excellent relationship with him and wish him every success. The last two seasons have been extremely challenging given the unprecedented circumstances created by the pandemic and the unexpected and hugely disappointing relegation from League 1 last season. I hope the Club can bounce back quickly and continue pursuing the objective of Championship football UTG.”
