John Mackay, who has been a director for over four years and chairman of Workington Football Club for the last two, has announced he will be standing down from the position with immediate effect.
Mackay said, “I am proud to have worked with the directors, managers, players and everyone involved with the club behind the scenes. There are some wonderful people who help to maintain our club and I would like to say a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to each and every one of them.
“I have enjoyed my time being involved with running the Reds immensely, and I am proud of what we have achieved in terms of growing the club’s community presence and making it much more financially stable and sustainable.
“There is a group of very good people we have been working with, who have shown a commitment to running the club going forward. I believe now is the right time for me to step down and let someone else take the reins, whilst I spend time with my partner, who has also recently retired, enabling us to see more of our respective families.”
Community Director, and Vice Chairman, Ross Peacock announced that he will be leaving the board at the same time. Both were appointed directors in October, 2015 and have stated,
“It will be good just to be able to watch the games in the future from the terraces and enjoying the crack with fellow Reds fans.”
