Torquay Utd FC Chief Executive not to turn up for work
Thu 20th May 2010 | Clubs Ownership
The League Managers Association (LMA) has today confirmed that Colin Lee has been notified in writing by Torquay United Football Club that the role of Chief Executive is at risk of redundancy and that he is not required to attend work during the process.
Lee has made a very significant contribution to the club since his arrival three years ago, this includes:
• In his first year, reaching the play offs of the Football Conference and the Final of the FA Trophy
• In his second year, taking the club from the Football Conference into the Football League 2 via the play offs
• Last season, playing a major role in retaining Torquay United’s Football League status
• Over the 3 year period, reintroducing the club’s Youth Policy and establishing a Centre of Excellence
• As recently as this week, securing a new and vastly improved training ground for the club
Richard Bevan, chief executive of the LMA said: “Colin Lee’s achievements at Torquay are very significant indeed and of which he is justifiably proud. It is unfortunate that the club believes it is no longer able to continue the role of chief executive but there is absolutely no suggestion that Colin was in any way responsible for the losses incurred over the last two years. The LMA will continue to support Colin through the redundancy process”.
