Mike Dunstan has stepped down as Gloucester City chairman after 27 years at the club.

Dunstan is the second high-profile figure to resign in the last few days after manager Tim Harris walked away on Thursday.

Gloucester have been without a home since Meadow Park flooded in 2007 and currently play their home games in Evesham.

Building work has started on a new stadium but fans have been frustrated by the lack of progress has been slow with owner Eamonn McGurk saying last week he hopes it will be ready by the end of the 2018-19 season.

In a statement, Dunstain spoke of the ‘heartbreaking’ decision and believes they need leadership, structure and investment to move forward but says he will continue to support the club in any way he can.

Dunstan said: “It is with regret that I informed the club’s owner last week that I am resigning from the position of chairman, coming into effect after the game against Eastbourne Borough to enable me to support Will Morford (caretaker manager) and the players after a difficult week.

“It has been an honour and a privilege to chair this fantastic football club, but the time and effort it takes to run this club is far beyond that which is reasonable of volunteers.”
