Following our announcement on Tuesday night of the list of candidates for the Supporters Club Associate Directorship, the Supporters club have to advise that Ian Pugh has now decided to withdraw from the election.
“Ian telephoned me this morning to tell me that he had decided to withdraw from the contest.”, said Supporters club chairman John Malyckyj. He continued, “Ian wishes to continue the work he has started on behalf of the Supporters Club, but with his family and various business interests he felt that his time would have been compromised had he been successful in the election. I am grateful for his honesty in coming to this decision and am pleased that he will continue to assist us with our commercial activities, an area in which he has great expertise and can have a great impact in the coming months.”
Both of the two remaining candidates, David Brain and Kenneth Masters, have been informed of Ian’s decision.
More news on the elections and more information on the candidates and how they will approach the role if elected will appear in due course.
