Chairman Rob Edwards stated “I am delighted to welcome both to the club as we look to assemble a Board to take us further, and to assist me with what will be a big year for the club. Both have very relevant key skillsets that the club can take advantage of. Above that, they are good people and football people. With Julian Furne and Darren Browne now active on the Board, we have a great team running the club.”
