Matt Boles has now been appointed as the clubs Chief Executive Officer and will sit on the clubs new Executive Board. The new, five-person Executive Board will be made up of Chairman Richard Kane, Vice Chairman Ryan Smith, Directors David Horsley and Martyn Snell and Chief Executive Officer Matt Boles. This group will be responsible for all day-to-day operations and strategic planning at the club moving forward.

Following the successful recruitment of three new directors in the summer (Martyn Snell, Ryan Smith and Jed Hallam) it was felt that a new Board structure was needed to allow for more responsive, effective decision-making as we seek to move the club forward, both on and off the pitch.

Geoff Holmes, Darren Ashley, Kevin Johnson and Jed Hallam will assume new roles, as non-executive Directors. These will still be hands on roles within the club. Each will retain the individual areas of responsibility/knowledge that they have always held and continue to be vitally important members of the team structure.

The whole board hope that these changes will help to drive the club forward and build on the fantastic start to the season that Neal and his team have so for delivered. It will also ensure the longer-term planning and sustainability of our club.
