4:27pm Tuesday 3rd December 2013 in Sport
SWINDON Town have confirmed the resignation of chairman Jed McCrory with immediate effect.
A statement released by the club on Tuesday afternoon read: "Jed McCrory has requested, and the Board of Swindon Town reluctantly agreed, to step down as Chairman and Board member of Swindon Town FC with immediate effect.
"Jed stepped into the Club at a time of need and we all agree has rejuvenated the Club and the community. He has instilled pride back into STFC and the town of Swindon. As close friends and family are aware, Jed has had recurring health issues which have taken their toll over the 14-hour days he has devoted to taking the Club from relative obscurity to respectability.
"He leaves the Club having established a robust, proven business model, as well as a team that sits 7th in the League 1 table, are in the Area Semi-Finals of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and displaying some of the most attractive football in the division.
"Speaking after the Board meeting today, Jed issued the following statement: “I would like to thank all the staff for their personal support, the sponsors for sticking with the team during the difficult times and finally, the fans for supporting me. I am extremely proud to have got to know most of you. I will miss walking around the Club before the game. I will always remember the song
“He goes where he wants “, the Town End guys and the chaps in the Tap and Barrel pub; at least I opened up the Town End bar! I look forward to being in and around Swindon and having a beer with you. This decision is made with a heavy heart but I have always believed that the Club must come before the man. #inittogether, have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you soon!”
