Bootle Football Club has announced three new appointments to the club’s hierarchy.
Ken Head has been appointed Vice President, while former Reserve team managers John Callaghan and Tony Ellis have agreed to join the club’s committee.
Ken has been involved with the club for a number of years and is in some ways known as the club’s official voice on match-days. But Ken is much more than the clubs official voice, having helped the club financially with the sponsoring of players and match balls over the years he has also played a huge part in helping the club achieve glowing reviews for their match day hospitality to both match officials and visiting club and league officials.
While John joined the club as youth team manager back in 2013, after success in the West Cheshire youth league, John, now accompanied by Tony, made the step up to the West Cheshire senior leagues to run the reserves. Success followed at reserves team level too, with the duo winning the WCL Shield in their first season in charge. But last year John and Tony went one better by winning the West Cheshire 3rd Division.
Personal reasons meant John and Tony couldn’t commit to running the Reserves this season – but they have stayed involved with the club and everyone is delighted that they have both accepted an invitation to join the club’s committee.
Speaking on the appointments Chairman Bobby Capstick said: “I’m absolutely delighted all three have agreed to take their roles. We have been looking and working on getting new faces on board for a while and these three are perfect additions.
“The appoint of Ken as vice-president is a very deserving one in my opinion. Ken is a figurehead and in many ways the perfect ambassador for this club. While John and Tony I believe, will only be positive additions to the club. I’m absolutely delighted they have agreed to come on board.”
