Witton Albion have announced that John Salmon is to become chairman when Mark Harris completes a ten-year tenure at the end of this season.
Salmon joined the board as a non-executive director in 2015 and has since acted as the club’s solicitor. During his time at the club to date, he has established a flourishing player pathway at Wincham Park, introducing Youth, Reserve and Development teams which has generated a number of players, including Ronan Eves, who last year became the youngest ever player to represent Witton Albion at first-team level since 1940.
“John has all the qualities required of a chairman” said Mark Harris. “He is a businessman and a football person; commercially astute and focused on compliance.
“I am confident that he will take the club forward.”
Salmon is looking forward to the challenge ahead:
“Witton Albion is a fantastic club and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead it” he said.
Outgoing chairman Harris has agreed to stay on as a director for a limited period to help his successor settle into the hot seat.
