Following recent reported news events relating to the Club’s interim chairman Barry Oliver; the Club today received notification from Mr. Oliver that he was standing down from his post at the Club forthwith. The Club has accepted Mr. Oliver’s resignation, and as a result of this notification the Club held an emergency meeting and Kevin Close was elected interim Chairman in line with the Clubs Articles of Association.
Mr. Oliver had contributed to the Club in kind over the past few years by doing remedial work, which was undertaken on a purely voluntary basis. The Club at the time accepted this offer from Mr. Oliver in good faith and as a genuine offer of assistance. There was no suggestion whatsoever of any impropriety or wrongdoing at the time.
