Corsham Town Football Club – Press Release 03/03/2017

Following the club’s EGM on Thursday night, Chris Perry will take on the role of Chairman until the club holds its AGM in May.

Chris will be forming a new committee in the next few days to ensure the club fulfils its commitments to both The Toolstation Western League and The Wiltshire League.

Nigel Tripp has been reinstated as first team manager with immediate effect.

Statement from the Chairman:

“This has been a difficult three weeks for the club and I hope we can put this behind us now and look to the future.

I would like to thank Mel Gingell and Pete Ralph for stepping in to manage the first team for the last two fixtures, it was a difficult job but they managed to put out a competitive team at very short notice.

The remaining fixtures will be difficult for Nigel as many of the players he bought to the club have now moved on but with the help of the reserve team he is confident that we will fulfil all our remaining fixtures.

At last night’s EGM members expressed some genuine concerns regarding the running of the club which I have taken on board and will be addressing in the next few weeks.

My immediate aim is to stabilise the club, over the past year or so we have lost some very good people. Fans and volunteers are at the heart of a club like ours and I would welcome new support to help put together a strong committee that have a united vision on the best way forward.

The fans have been very patient during this time of uncertainty and I want to assure them that I will endeavour to build a football club that they can be proud of once again.”
