New Chairman And Management Team Announced

5 years ago By Dave Oldridge

Goole AFC is delighted to announce that Baron Bloom has been appointed Chairman of the Club.

Property Investor Bloom has been looking to become involved in a football club for some time and after investigating a number of options, has decided that Goole AFC offers the best opportunity to fulfil his ambitions.

Baron is determined to move the club forward both on and off the pitch and has some great ideas to improve our crowds as well as making greater use of our resources. He says, "I am very excited at the possibilities that this creates and I look forward to success, both on and off the field”.

Goole AFC simultaneously announces the appointment of David Holdsworth as manager with Curtis Woodhouse as assistant. Bloom said “We are delighted to have appointed such a heavyweight team and feel this is a real coup for the Club”.

Holdsworth said " I'm delighted to help Baron on his new project. After listening to his enthusiasm and desire, I hope together we can help lay some good foundations. This is a huge task and will take time, however we feel things can improve and start to change the fortunes of the club."

Bloom commented, “For some time I have wanted to become involved in a non-league club and see how far we can move it forward. My role, which will be completely unpaid, will be to assist in improving the club’s revenue. All of this revenue will be applied to improve the club infrastructure and facilities as well as the on-field success. I am delighted to be involved with such a wonderful club, and together with the new board, I know we will take the club into many new arenas. We will be looking to work with the staff, the players and the fans and together we can take Goole AFC to ambitious new horizons. This is a wonderful opportunity for us all".
