Simon Olorenshaw, Chairman of City Fans United, has advised fellow Directors of his decision to resign from the board of City Fans United in order to fully focus on his increasing work commitments with Merseyrail.

Speaking of his decision, Simon said: “It is with great regret that, due to work commitments, I have decided to step down from the Board of the CFU, with immediate effect. “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the CFU Board and am proud to have been a part of the amazing journey that our club is on. “I shall continue to attend games with Jackie, and wish the Board, Jon McCarthy and Ian Sharps all the best for the future.”

The CFU Board would like to place on record special thanks for his commitment and passion as Chairman. During his tenure Simon has overseen significant strategic restructuring within the club which creates a superb platform for the future. We wish Simon all the very best for the future and look forward to his continued attendance as a season ticket holder.

As Vice Chairman of City Fans United, Jonny Hughes will initially assume the role of Chair until the next planned board meeting.
