“Mike’s role is varied and runs across most aspects of the club. During his time, he has helped guide the community programme and oversee the transfer of it to a charitable foundation which enables it to access a wider range of funding for the programme to continue to grow.
“He has also helped bring more structure to the football development side; oversee the education programme and he works with our safety officer to ensure matchdays run smoothly and safely.
“We will be very sorry to see Mike go but fully understand and support his reasons. He leaves the club with our sincere thanks and very best wishes for the future.”
