Stratford Town FC are sorry to announce that Melanie Tweddle has decided to stand down as Chairperson due to an increase in her work & family commitments, especially the success of her recent business venture.
Melanie has played a pivotal part in the success of the club for over 10 years, joining when Stratford were based at their old ground in Masons Road.
She has guided the commercial arm of the business through the move to our excellent facilities at Knights Lane & our subsequent double promotion into the Southern Premier League.
Every club at this level is heavily dependent on its sponsors & Melanie always managed to maximise the clubs relationships with its sponsors even during the recent difficult years of financial stagnation & recession.
Without her expertise the club would not be in its current position on or off the field.
We would like to thank her for all her efforts & wish her every success in the future.
The club are actively seeking to appoint another Commercial person as well as new members of the board who will add to the skills that will take the club forward.
In the meantime the club will be run by the remaining directors.
Any announcements will be made in due course.”
