Three more directors have been co-opted onto the City Fans United (CFU) board.

The CFU board put out an appeal for fans to apply for the board to help move the club forward and the board is delighted to announce that Dave Harrington-Wright, Andrew Morris and Sam Swash have been co-opted onto the board until the AGM in October. They join David O'Toole who was co-opted in April.

Dave, 49, runs two successful businesses in Chester and has 30 years business experience. He has also previously been actively involved with fundraising for the Wales Air Ambulance and SHARE, a homeless charity.

He said: "I run a couple of successful, busy businesses in Chester and have some great links into the business sector which I feel can help the future of Chester FC. In the past I have been actively involved with Wales Air Ambulance and more recently SHARE, so I am looking forward to helping the community and fundraising side of our club. I think the future is bright for Chester FC and I am looking forward to being a productive contributor to future success!"

Andrew, 33, is a regional HR manager for North West charity, Alternative Futures Group. He has also been volunteering on the Governance group at the club for a number of years.

He said: "I am looking forward to working with the board of directors to engage with the supporter base and achieve success for Chester FC both on and off the field in 2017/18."

Sam, 25, is a PhD student and has previously ran his own wholesale clothing business and worked for Unrenco UK.

He said: "It is a great honour to be given the opportunity to serve on the board of our football club - I am looking forward to working with the rest of the board, the membership and the fanbase in helping our club realise its ambitions whilst continuing to give the city a football club it can be proud of."

The board would also like to take this opportunity to remind people that if they wish to stand for election at the next AGM in October then they need to sign up as an owner of CFU and Chester FC before June 26th.
