Oldham Appoint Simon Brooke To Board of Directors

Thu 27th Aug 2015 | Football Club Management

Oldham Athletic has announced the appointment of Simon Brooke onto its Board of Directors.

Simon has been appointed to the Board as the representative of Trust Oldham following its recent AGM and ratification from the Football League.

A pivotal figure at Trust Oldham since he joined the Trust Board last year, Simon said of his appointment, "Since my dad first walked me through the Chaddy End turnstiles in 1986 this club has been a huge part of my life, and it has given me many wonderful experiences and great friends. I count myself extremely fortunate and privileged to be taking on this important role.

“I am well aware that this job is a difficult one, but it is one I relish. We have thousands of fans and thousands of opinions, so pleasing everyone all the time is going to be difficult.

“However, I've always approached each and every challenge with a positive attitude and I will be working as hard as I can to build on the most important partnership there is, which is between the club and the fans.

“From top to bottom the club is packed with Oldham fans who want nothing more than to bring the successful times back.  I am looking forward to helping them all achieve that in whatever way I can."

On the changes that have been made at Trust Oldham, he said: “As a Trust we have reorganised and are focused on creating an inclusive and relevant organisation.  

“After all, a strong Trust is good for the fans and ultimately good for our club. It is a privilege not many other football league clubs have.

“I would therefore urge all fans, season ticket holders or not, to join Trust Oldham and support the activities that are happening this season. For both the club and the Trust exciting times are ahead."

Commenting on the appointment for the club, Chairman Simon Corney said: “It is with pleasure that we welcome Simon onto the Board in his role as the representative of Trust Oldham.

“It is no secret that I have long wished that the Trust could play a more proactive role at our club and Simon has the qualities and experience to make this happen.

“We believe he will prove a valuable addition to the Board and his appointment will further strengthen the link between club and fans."
