Hartlepool United Chairman Announces Resignation

Thu 4th May 2017 | Clubs Ownership

Hartlepool United’s Chairman, Gary Coxall has announced his resignation from the League Two club.

The club faces relegation from the Football League for the first time in their history this weekend, and saw manager Dave Jones sacked in April having won just 3 of his 17 games in charge.  

Making the announcement, Gary Coxall said in a statement: “It is with huge sadness that I announce that, after some serious consideration over the past two weeks, I have decided to resign from my position as Chairman of our Club.

“I am not oblivious to my surroundings and the feeling towards my tenure as Chairman and I feel that, should I continue, it would divide the Club at a time when it needs to come together as one.

"Therefore, if my Chairmanship is a factor in preventing that togetherness, then I will happily step aside for the good of the Club. The Club is more important.”

Pam Duxbury will assume the position of CEO with the additional duties of the Chair. Coxall’s decision also leaves open the option for fans to take over the running of the club.

“I have agreed and passed a mandate to Pam for her to explore conversion to a fan ownership model for Hartlepool United,” Coxall added.

“To this end, as of this evening, she has met with the Supporters' Trust to start discussions, and further announcements will be made in due course.”
