Steve Adkins is stepping down as Chair of Tooting & Mitcham United and will be replaced by Caroline McRoyall, formerly CEO of the Surrey FA, the club have announced.
After many years as Chair Steve intends to concentrate on the strategic plans for Imperial Fields, which will ensure the long-term security of TMUFC and the TM UNITED Hub. The organisation is the centre of the local community, creating opportunities for everyone in sport, health, education and leisure. He remains as the major shareholder of Tooting and Mitcham Sports and Leisure Ltd who own the Club.
In a statement Steve said:
“My time as Chair of the Club has been a roller-coaster, with the highs of promotion and lows of relegation! My proudest moments have to include creating opportunities for the young people of South London. During my chairmanship young players have gone on to professional football clubs and many others have been given opportunities to find their place in the community. The last couple of seasons have been my proudest and the potential of the Club has never been greater.
To be able to pass on the stewardship to Caroline is fantastic. She has been involved with football throughout her career. Her knowledge and experience will create even more opportunities for the Club and its community.”
“I am honoured to be joining Tooting and Mitcham FC as Chair and relish the opportunity to support the club in its pivotal role of developing players and providing a wide range of activities for the local community.”
