Basford Chairman Chris Munroe last night confirmed the appointment of Stan Mitchell as a Director and taking up to role of Vice Chairman in the Football Club.
The Role of Vice Chairman has remained vacant since the spring and the Basford Chair was keen to stress it was a role he sees of great importance. Commenting Chris Munroe stated "Delighted to welcome Stan to this position and its one I think he will do a great job. With my time focusing on a lot of other areas in the club as well as Liberal Sports Clothing brand then Stan will drop perfectly to this role"
Munroe is clear no day to day changes will result because of this appointment, but Stan will slot in at the top end of the club alongside himself, Steve Chettle & Tracie Witton & a very committed Senior Committee of excellent individuals.
With the Basford Chairman keen that the infrastructure of the club must keep pace with the sterling work going on the pitch, then this appointment & others are a necessity.
With Basford having all eyes on promotion to the National League within the next few years, then Munroe feels it is crucial we significantly beef up the backroom.
Again commenting the Chairman states" I see 2020/21 of significance excitement & importance to the club. Not only is the 1st team & Academy under Steve Chettle very well placed in the next 2 years to have a significant go at Promotion & develop our next group of future prospects,but Phase 2 of ground improvements and new structures kick in. Also significant positional recruitment with all eyes on a Commercial Director and a top Ground Maintenance manager are on the horizon."
Both positions fall within Basford,s 5 year objectives.
At the time of printing Basford Chairman also under lines his desire to commence a highly competitive Ladies and Girls section. " I see no reason with the facilities and the position of the club, why we should not have a ladies section equivalent to the 1st team,Youth & Academy. The vision is too see a ladies section come to fruition & the senior team of such be competing at the highest level of ladies football. Under this we want a Junior girls section to be formed & be the envy of County."
Munroe does not rule out Ladies teams coming over from other clubs but is keen to stress " "we will not poach but any teams wishing to talk to us you know where we are".
