TWO MORE DIRECTORS APPOINTED TO REDS BOARD
Monday Sep 5, 2011 to Monday Sep 5, 2011
ALFRETON Town have appointed former local businessmen John Glasby and Roger Webster to their board of directors.
Both men are now retired but they will bring a wealth of business and development acumen with them to the club.
Glasby, 64, is a former managing director of a chemical company based in Alfreton whilst Webster, 67, is a former director and trustee of the Crich Tramway Museum where he first became a volunteer in 1976.
Shirland-born Glasby now lives near Darley Dale but has strong sporting links with the Alfreton area having been president of Amber Valley Rugby Club for close on 20 years.
He has also been watching the Reds since the early 1960s and in his words, ‘is mad on sport'.
Webster's skills lie in finance areas and budgetting. Over the years he has been involved at senior level with some high flying national companies including Electrolux.
Roger lives in Alfreton and one of his initial projects will be to develop the club's image.
He has plenty of knowledge of the game having been a referee for 32 years and he was also vice-chairman of a youth league in Bedfordshire before he moved back to Derbyshire.
He said: "I like the club and the ethos it has within."
