John McLoughlin has stepped down as chairman of Evo-Stik League Southern Premier Division club Dunstable Town.

McLoughlin said: “After many years at Dunstable Town FC it is with deep regret that I am stepping down as chairman.

“I have now been involved with the club for many years and I feel it is time to allow someone else to move the club forward as I can no longer give the club the time and finances required at this level of football.

“At a meeting last night I was delighted that Ed Harrison has stepped in as interim chairman and I will do my upmost to support him in this role.

“Ed is a local businessman and has proved within the town how successful his business has become and this can only help Dunstable Town FC.

“If you cut me in half I would read Dunstable Town FC but I have other responsibilities within my life and these have to come first and I hope you will understand.

“I hope to think that I can depart with my head held high as the club is still in the Southern League Premier, which is one of the toughest leagues within non-League football. To have been at the helm of such a great club with great history will stay with me for life and great memories have been made. I would like to thank the committee, supporters and the manager for their support and especially my wife who has been my rock.

“May I take this opportunity to personally thank the supporters club for all of their help and may I wish all of you great success in the future”.
