Basildon United name new Chair

Basildon United have announced that Chairman Dave Maxwell has decided to step down as chair after overseeing the club's return to- and establishment in- the Pitching In Isthmian League. He will be replaced as Chair by Vice-Chair Lee Connor, who has also spent time in the past covering the roles of manager and assistant manager.

Lee told the club website:

“I am very excited about the prospect of helping to drive this club forward and I can’t thank Dave Maxwell enough for the trust he has shown in me by handing over full responsibility for the day to day running of the club.

I am really looking forward to the new season ahead and working with our manager, John Guyton, and his team who have worked over the last few weeks to assemble a really exciting young squad who, in my eyes, are capable of good things this season."

Dave will remain on the board. Read more by clicking the link above.
