Accrington Stanley FC search for new Directors

Wed 21st Jul 2010 | Clubs Ownership

Accrington Stanley Managing Director, David O’Neill has announced his search for new directors for the Club.  With Ilyas Khan’s immanent official resignation from the Chair and also board member Peter Marsden based out of Accrington, David O’Neill is looking for local businessmen and company directors to join the club and help push Stanley on to the next level. 

Ilyas has not yet officially resigned; however, the Club needs to plan for the future.  It has been very difficult to hold board meetings with both Peter and Ilyas being based in London and for a League 2 Club the board should have a more extensive base than three Directors. 

O’Neill would also like for the new board to democratically vote on the new Chairman once Ilyas officially departs, he went on to explain “When Eric left it was assumed that because he was Managing Director and Chairman that I would step into those shoes, it was not a position that I was comfortable with as it did not seem right to just adopt that roll, the past 14 months have been challenging to say the least. We have now assembled a very strong Management team who are more than capable of driving the Club forward and maintain off field activity to reach our maximum potential. 

When Ilyas stepped into the Chair he played Devil’s Advocate superbly and challenged, yet helped me, every step of the way, however, the time has come to elect a board and Chairman to spearhead the club and continue to challenge this management team to ensure we do achieve that maximum potential, potential that I have always known was there.”

 O’Neill verified the criteria of potential applicants, “I’m looking for approximately six well established local professionals with verified business experience and acumen, who have both a vested interest in the Club and the town. Interested parties should be from a broad spectrum of professions from Company Directors to Solicitors. Candidates will ideally have a wealth of experience and expertise that will enhance the development and sustainability of the Club.” 

For anyone interested in investing in the club and joining the board, please declare interest in writing for the personal attention of David O’Neill, Accrington Stanley Football Club, Livingstone Road, Accrington, BB5 5BX
