Stan Mitchell has joined the board at Basford United as a director and will become vice-chairman.

The role has remained vacant since the spring, and chairman Chris Munroe was keen to stress it is one he sees of great importance. Munroe said: “Delighted to welcome Stan to this position and it’s one I think he will do a great job in.

“With my time focusing on a lot of other areas in the club, as well as Liberal Sports Clothing brand, Stan will drop perfectly into this role.”
