New City Fans United Chairman
Thursday, 17 December 2015 11:58

At the first full CFU board meeting since the AGM in November, the board have elected Simon Olorenshaw as the new Chairman of City Fans United.

Simon will combine the role with his job at Merseyrail where he is Head of Asset Management.

Simon was co-opted onto the CFU board last year, and was recently elected to the board at the AGM. Simon said: “As Chair I am there to support my fellow Directors, facilitate progress and ensure that we deliver on our commitments. It is not the traditional role of the Football Chairman who has the final say on everything within the football club.

“The football club is controlled by the Operations Board, which in turn is accountable to the CFU board.” He added: "I am also looking forward to building on the great work of the previous Chairmen.

"For me it is all around the three pillars of the first team, the youth and the community and it is ensuring we have the right level of support for all those areas. "I am honoured to be leading the CFU as we go into an exciting time."

Simon led the board in recording thanks for the hard work of previous Chairman Grenville Millington and all other board members have who stood down over the past year.

Also at the meeting, Jim Keegan stood down from his role as Vice-Chairman but will continue to serve on both the Operations and CFU boards. Neil Bellis, who has served on the CFU board since 2014, was elected to the role of Vice-Chairman.

The board elected Laurence Kirby as the Treasurer of CFU and re-appointed Marion Needham as Secretary.

The board have discussed the co-opting of further members to both CFU and Operational boards. This will be reported back to members when these are finalised.
