The Chester Chronicle report that City Fans United (CFU), the supporters group that owns Chester FC has appointed Simon Olorenshaw as its new chairman.
Olorenshaw, who holds a senior management position within Merseyrail, was co-opted onto the CFU board four weeks ago after the resignation of four board members, including then chairman Jonny Hughes, following the revelations of the extent of the financial crisis at the club were revealed at last month’s CFU members meeting.
Olorenshaw joined the board a month ago along with Mark Howell, Jeff Banks and Calvin Hughes, with the quartet having to wait on FA clearance before proceeding with formally naming the CFU chair. That clearance has now been forthcoming.
Olorenshaw joined the board in May 2015 and served as chairman for 11 months until stepping down owing to work commitments in November 2016.
