Emotional Scarborough Athletic has announced that Trevor Bull has been appointed as the club’s new chairman, writes Richard Scott.
The announcement comes after the passing of former chairman Dave Holland, who tragically died last month.
Bull is a local businessman who is already working with Scarborough Borough Council and Everyone Active to help ensure the smooth return of the Seadogs to Scarborough following their decade exile in Bridlington.
He will be joined on the board by two new members in the shape of Andy Crossland and Fred Firman, both who are lifelong supporters of Scarborough FC and Scarborough Athletic.
Crossland is Chief Executive of Humber Learning Consortium, an organisational development and bid writing specialist. He will provide additional commercial experience and support to the board as the operations director.
Meanwhile Firman works for a large port company where he is responsible for the day to day management of the harbour authority on the Humber Estuary, which has given him a background in operational management and experience in balance of a demanding board and stakeholders, which he will bring to the club in the position of Football Operations director.
The Evo-Stik Northern Premier League first division club has also announced the return of Sally Elwick to the role of club secretary.
Bull’s first act has been to announce the date of Scarborough Athletic’s first game in the town.
The match will be played on 15th July with a 3 pm kick-off, however, the opposition has yet to be announced.
Chairman Bull said: “It is a game we are really looking forward to and I can confirm that it will be a sell-out.”
The late chairman Holland told Pitchero Non-League earlier this year that he hoped that Bridlington Town would pay a visit to the new stadium as a thank for the help they showed the club during their exile.
