Workington Reds announce new board of directors
Last updated at 15:23, Monday, 10 June 2013
Workington Reds have announced a new board of directors with two additions joining Humphrey Dobie and Colin Doorbar, who have agreed to stay.
Businessman Glenn Heathcote, who lives in Newcastle, will join chairman Dobie and Doorbar.
Heathcote is the managing director of Lilley and Gillie, a firm that specialises in maritime instrument manufacturer.
Lilley and Gillie work closely with Reds’ new sponsor Baker Tilly, and Heathcote is a relative of late Workington town councillor John Heathcote, who died in 2008.
Also joining the board as an associate director is Workington man Don Blackwell.
He is a sports club administrator and coach and will be responsible for ground maintenance – the role Dave Wilson played when he was a director until quitting last season.
As associate director, Blackwell has no shares in Workington and will not be allowed to vote in meetings.
General manager Alec Graham said: “It’s fantastic to have two new board members. Both have valuable qualities and their inclusion on the board can only help stabilise the club.”
Dobie and Doorbar both quit at the club’s annual meeting last month, but have now decided to stay on.
Graham also revealed the club has received a “significant cash boost” by an unnamed supporter.
The fan did not want publicity for the donation but Graham said the figure was on par with the five-figure sponsorship deal struck with Baker Tilly and AI London.
