The resignation from the Wycombe Wanderers Trust Board, of former Football Club Chairman, Don Woodward, has been announced. Don was a Trust Board director for 5 years, and was Chairman of the Football Club for the two years following the Trust taking ownership.
Woodward cited that he felt it was time for others to take responsibility for the next stage of Wycombe’s revival and upward journey, as the reason behind his resignation.
Commenting on the announcement, Trust Chairman Trevor Stroud said,
“I would like to thank Don for his pivotal contribution in establishing Wycombe Wanderers as a Trust owned football club, as well as his contribution as Club Chairman.
During this time he was instrumental in reducing the significant losses the Club were incurring, and putting the Club on the path to financial stability. It is not an understatement to say that without Don’s involvement, the Club would not be in the position it currently is.”
An announcement regarding the replacement of Don on the Trust Board will be made in due course.
On the ‘one-third’ rotation policy, Don was due to stand down from the Board and seek re-election at the next WW Trust AGM which, now that we are a Community Benefit Society, will probably be held in November 2015.
