GRAYS Athletic Chairman Keith Burns has informed the rest of the Board that he will be stepping down at the end of the season.
Keith will also be relinquishing his role as Match Secretary. Keith has been with the club for ten years, and has been Chairman for the last six years.
Keith said “Over the last decade I’ve done pretty much every job at the club, and overall it has been an enjoyable experience. Increasingly my business commitments are taking me away from home, making both club administration and midweek games in particular harder to get to.
"I feel it to be in the best interests of the club to step down, and allow someone with fresh vigour to take over. I will offer my successor whatever assistance they may need, and do not intend to be sat indoors at three o’clock on a Saturday thinking that I should be somewhere else!”
"The club wish to thank Keith for all that he has done for the club, and wish him well for the future.
"Grays Athletic will now begin the process of appointing a new Chairman, and will make a further announcement in due course.
The news leaves Grays Ath with a President and Club Owner, Andy Swallow and a Chief Executive, Joel Nathan.
