Cheshire Live report that Chester FC non-exective director Richard Lynes has issued a plea for more people to come forward to sit on the fan-owned club’s board.
With just six directors sitting on the City Fans United board and a lack of candidates putting themselves forward at the AGM in September, serving directors have been spread thinly over a number of portfolios.
At present chairman David Harrington-Wright is joined by Jeff Banks, Andrew Morris, Calvin Hughes, Mark Jones, David Williams and Mike Day on the board and Blues chiefs would like to see another four co-opted to bring them up to 10.
And while matters on the pitch under managers Bernard Morley and Anthony Johnson at present are going so well, Lynes stressed the importance of not being complacent when it comes to matters off the field.
“It is reaching a situation that is quite serious in my opinion as we have directors spread so thinly and looking after three or four portfolios and they just don’t have the bandwidth to be able to cope with that continuously,” said Lynes, who in his role as non-executive director holds no portfolio or voting privileges.
