....response to the recent resignation of chairman Derek Blow.
The statement reads as follows: "The management committee of Rainworth Miners’ Welfare Football Club are saddened to learn of the decision of our chairman Derek Blow to sever his ties with the club, with immediate effect. Without going into too much detail, Derek has decided to go because of what he regarded as an irreconcilable difference of opinion between himself and the management committee over the future course of the club.
“Derek has been with us for five successful years during which the club has climbed the non-League Pyramid to its present level, and we must place on record our gratitude for his input and commitment to Rainworth FC during that time. However, his strong desire was to lead the club along a new direction, which the committee members felt they could not follow with a good conscience, and sadly that has brought about an amicable parting of the ways for us.
“We would like to extend our grateful thanks to Derek for all that he has done for the club during his tenure as chairman and, before that, as vice-chairman, and to wish him the very best for the future, where ever it may take him. We would also wish to assure him of the warmest of welcomes whenever he cares to visit us in the future."
