Peacehaven & Telscombe’s officials are looking for a new chairman to lead the Ryman South’s Magpies into next season.

Officials at the East Sussex club launched the hunt this week to replace former chairman Brian Suckling following his death last month.

Appointed at The Sports Park in December 2014, the former Magpies and Crawley Down Gatwick chairman passed away aged 63 after losing his battle with cancer.

More than 400 mourners attended his funeral when he was remembered as one of life’s “good guys” and hailed by representatives of the club for the successful campaign he led to raise funds for new stands and essential ground improvements.

The second from bottom Magpies have been run by acting chairman Sue Norwood since his passing and according to club officials, the time has now come to install a new man or woman with the experience and passion to take them forward.

Magpies secretary Derek Earley said: “Since losing Brian we have been looking for a new chairman to take the role. Hopefully, we will still be in the Ryman League next season but we need a chairman who can take us forward. We have a fantastic acting chairman in Sue Norwood who has taken the reins but it is time to move forward and find someone new to run this great club.”

Potential candidates should send a covering letter expressing their interest with their CVs to Earley at: Alternatively, they can be posted to him at 63 Phyllis’s Avenue, Peacehaven, East Sussex, BN10 7RA.
