Paul Bowden-Brown has stepped down as chairman of Ramsgate.
James Lawson will be taking on the role, with the club explaining the developments in this statement:
Many of our supporters would have noticed that after recent heart surgery our Chairman Paul Bowden Brown has been wearing a heart monitor. Paul this week has had to inform the shareholder that results from the monitor has shown it is essential that he reduce the stress levels in his lifestyle. It is with regret that he has tendered his resignation as Chairman.
Whilst he wishes to continue the sterling work he’s been doing with regard to stadium development in his capacity as a Director, it is with great sadness that on Doctors advice he must retire from running, organising and funding the playing side of the first team.
Jason Lillis has been informed and has agreed to stay on and help restructure the club by helping further develop our large youth section giving a strong pathway to the first team and beyond.
