Gloucester City have appointed Eamonn McGurk and Alex Petheram as joint-chairmen, with effect from 17th May 2019, with Jody Gooding taking up the role as vice-chairman.
McGurk enters his 25th season at the club from his role as shareholder and director. Petheram joined the club as a director in 2018, with Gooding joining the board in 2018.
In a joint statement from the three, the following was said: “We’re extremely excited and proud to take on the roles. This is an important time in the club’s history and we all need to come together to get this club over the line and playing in the city again.
“Our drive and vision is for the children of Gloucester to have the opportunities we had in our younger days, being able to go and watch the team in their City, creating a strong club culture throughout all sectors especially the Youth, Ladies, Foundation, Supporters Trust and Fans all the way through to the first team.
“Our goal for next season remains the same, to stabilise both on and off the pitch as we continue our long journey back to Meadow Park. Now we have planning granted and our funding application is in, we’re currently working with the FSIF in the due diligence stage, which due to the nature of our detailed application will be concluded we hope at the end of September 2019.
“Until the conclusion of the application there will be no future updates on the ground unless something changes.”
