New Chairman as young blood come on board

Having called for a much needed younger board to take the Club forward at their recent AGM, Vauxhall Chairman Tony Woodley was delighted with the response he received. This included electing a new Chairman, as Woodley is stepping down from this role.  In his place the Club has turned to Jon Waring as their new Chairman.  Jon has been at the club for the last 18 years, most recently as the Director of Football and their West Cheshire League Manager.

Assisting Jon in his Chairmanship will be newly elected President Dave Hall, Vice-Chairman James Lyon and Vice-President Stewart Forshaw, who have all previously been involved in the club’s successful Youth Policy.

“These are very exciting times for VMFC” commented long-serving Vice-Chairman Alan Bartlam.  “We desperately needed younger blood to come on board as the present regulars are all getting a good deal older.  I feel sure Jon will make a great job of being Chairman, especially with the assistance of Dave, James and Stewart.”

“Tony Woodley has done a marvellous job over recent years, overseeing the building of a brand new clubhouse, a second all-weather floodlit pitch and the floodlighting of the Rivacre Road pitch, to name just a few of his projects. He has undoubtedly put the club back on an even keel and the younger members will now be able to build upon his legacy.”

Jon Waring added “I feel honoured and privileged to be presented with the opportunity to lead this prestigious Club.  I’d like to congratulate Tony and the Vauxhall FC Board for the direction in which they have taken the Club to ensure its success and longevity.  I’m sure I speak for Dave, James and Stewart when I say we will do everything within our powers to continue your legacy”.
