Director and company secretary Ashley Carson has today resigned from the Chesterfield FC board of directors with immediate effect – just 24 hours after fans stormed the pitch during their 4-0 defeat to Solihull Moors.
A statement on the club’s official website says, “He listed his current workload outside the football club as a reason for his resignation. With football club matters taking a considerable amount of his time recently, he wished to reduce his day to day involvement in the club.
Carson will continue to remain as company secretary, attend board meetings and retain his 3% of shares within the company. His shareholding is the third largest after Dave Allen and Sue Roberts.
He also confirmed that his director’s debenture would remain in place for now and that he would not be requesting the loan be repaid.
Carson, who joined the board in March 2010 and was appointed as company secretary in February 2014, said: “I would like to thank the chairman, Mike Warner and fellow director John Croot for their support.”
