Resignation of Director – Billingham Town AFC


John Tough

"Following the resignation from the board by Paul earlier in the year, as you know I was elected interim chairman and subsequently Chairman of the Club at the AGM in September. Unfortunately shortly after being elected due to unexpected circumstances completely beyond my control I had to step down as Chairman and the day to day running of the Club until I could fully assess my situation.  I hoped this would be a temporary short term issue which would be resolved quickly and I could return to the Club in my official role. However unfortunately that has turned out not to be the case.  So it is with deep regret that I now have to officially resign my position at the Club.  It is not a decision I have taken lightly but as previously outlined the circumstances are totally beyond my control and will not be resolved in the short term.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my last three years at the Club and hopefully have contributed  towards its success and stability.  I wish the superb supporters and board every success in the future."
