It was revealed earlier that goalkeeper Sam Leigh had taken over as Chairman of Goole AFC and also becomes majority shareholder.
We caught up with Sam moments after the news broke, “It was something I was thinking about as soon as Steve and Craig announced they were stepping down. After a few discussions my mind was made up it was the right thing to do and the lads feel like we owe the fans and volunteers one after the upset of relegation.
“The remit will be to bounce back up at the 1st attempt and i will provide whats needed to achieve this. I would like to thank Steve and Craig for advice over the last few weeks and for there work previously at the club.
“I am under no illusion this will be extremely hard work but I will surround myself with the right people and set out the right structure to make this an enjoyable season. UTV!”
