Burnley FC Chairman Barry Kilby To Stand Down

Tue 7th Feb 2012 | Clubs Ownership

Burnley Football Club have announced today that Barry Kilby is to stand down as Chairman of the Board of Directors at the end of May.

Mr Kilby joined the Board in October 1998, was appointed Chairman two months later and, in January 1999, invested £3m to become the club’s biggest shareholder.

In his 13-year tenure he has overseen two promotions, including the honour of leading the club in their inaugural Premier League campaign in 2009/10.

In a statement to the club, Mr Kilby said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to have been at the helm of this great club for the past 13 years.

“However, growing demands on my time caused by the treatment of unfortunate health issues have convinced me that the time is right to plan to step down as Chairman.

“I will, of course, give my full support to my successor and hopefully will still be able to make a significant contribution to the well-being and progress of Burnley Football Club.”
