Curzon Ashton say that Harry Twamley BEM has decided to step down from his role as chairman – one of two roles he currently fulfils.
Commenting on the change, he said: “I’ve held the positions of chairman and finance director for a number of years now and, as we prepare for another season in the National League North, I’ve decided that the time is right to make the change. We’ve made great progress on and off the field and I now feel that the good work should continue under a younger leadership team.
“I am pleased to say the board accepted my proposal for Wayne Salkeld to become chairman, with Jimmy Newall as vice-chairman. I will continue in my role as finance director and I have every confidence that Wayne and Jimmy will bring new energy to the roles and I wish them the best of luck. They have both been extremely loyal servants to the club and fully deserve the opportunity to help take us forward.”
Additionally, Syd White has agreed to join the board. White has previously held the roles of commercial manager, CEO & COO during a 15-year spell with Tameside neighbours Stalybridge Celtic.
