Dorchester Town have announced that Scott Symes has been appointed as chairman following the AGM at The Clayson Stadium last night.
Having been recently appointed to the board of directors earlier this year, Symes succeeds outgoing chairman Matt Lucas after five years in the role.
Symes said: “I would firstly like to say a big thank you to Matt and all the existing board members for the tireless work they have carried out to bring the club to where we currently are today.
“I personally am very much looking forward to becoming chairman here at Dorchester Town and working closely with everyone within the club to work progressively on our DTFC vision, culture and future business plan. Going into next season and beyond we will have a fully aligned DTFC community guiding the club both on and off the pitch that can continue to grow that vision and culture into 2019 and beyond.”
“To ensure we can move on from where we are today, we need an aligned DTFC vision and financial plan that will give us success on and off the pitch. To achieve this we must ensure that as a community club we work smartly to maximise all our commercial income streams to get the right balance of those finances to Callum, his management team and players to bring enjoyable and successful times to The Clayson Stadium.
“We must do this in a way that will bring everybody within the DTFC community with us, with the ultimate aim of playing our football in the National League South, whilst maintaining a sustainable financial plan.”
