New Chairman (posted Thu 6th Jul 2017)
The Club is delighted to announce that Howard Wells OBE has been appointed as Chairman of Tring Athletic Football Club, with effect from September 2017. Wells has held six Chief Executive positions in sport throughout his career, two of which were in Hong Kong where he spent fifteen years. He has worked in three CEO roles in professional football, at Watford and Ipswich Town FC, when both achieved Premier League status. He spent four years as CEO of the Irish FA up to 2008 and has worked as a Match Commissioner for FIFA during two World Cup tournaments. In Hong Kong he worked for TVB as a pundit during four World Cups from 1982 to 1994. 

He was the first CEO of UK Sport and was instrumental in encouraging government to switch lottery funding from facility projects to athletes. He has Chaired the Sport and Recreation  Alliance, several business projects and is currently Chairing Adastra Sport Management and Futsal Focus. He is a Visiting Lecturer at Bucks New  University and has Chaired the University's  Business Advisory Group. He was awarded the OBE for Services to Sport.

Successful Extrordinary Meeting Held 6th June (posted Wed 7th Jun 2017)
The club held a successful and well supported E-GM last night. A total of 32 members and supporters attended the meeting and provided some great input to proceedings. At the meeting we identified how we would be able to fill some of the key areas in the clubs operational plan for the coming season, and agreed actions to address others.

Importantly, we will be welcoming Debbie Dunstan on to the Committee as Treasurer and I’m sure Debbie will prove to be a great ‘signing’ for the club. The same applies to Brian Rutherford who will be filling the new role of Administration & Maintenance Manager. There was also a good response for the call for volunteers to help run match day operations.

There is still work to be done to ensure we have a robust and fully resourced operational plan, and if anybody who was unable to attend would like to have their name added to the list of volunteers then please email the club directly.

The position of Chairman remains to be resolved and any interested persons should contact the Club. Mick Eldridge will remain in the Chair until the AGM due in September.

Many thanks to all those who attended and put their hands up to help – much appreciated.
