Workington Reds chairman John Mackay and vice-chairman Ross Peacock have left the club.

The pair, who were both appointed directors in October 2015, confirmed their departures on the club's website.

Mackay, who had been chairman for two years, said: “I am proud to have worked with the directors, managers, players and everyone involved with the club behind the scenes.

"There are some wonderful people who help to maintain our club and I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of them.

“I have enjoyed my time being involved with running the Reds immensely, and I am proud of what we have achieved in terms of growing the club’s community presence and making it much more financially stable and sustainable.

“There is a group of very good people we have been working with, who have shown a commitment to running the club going forward.

"I believe now is the right time for me to step down and let someone else take the reins, while I spend time with my partner, who has also recently retired, enabling us to see more of our respective families.”

Peacock, who has been the club's community director, added: “It will be good just to be able to watch the games in the future from the terraces and enjoying the crack with fellow Reds fans.”

Reds travel to face Kendal Town tomorrow looking to extend their lead at the top of the NPL North West Division.
