The club last night reluctantly accepted the resignation of club chairman and under 18 manager, John Mortimer due to family commitments.
John has done a tremendous job over the past two seasons as chairman and been key to driving the off the field progress. He has implemented a five year plan and brought a whole new structure to the club.
In that period he has also overseen two league title wins with the under 18 side and also helped progress a number of these players into senior football and indeed first team football.
Added to this he has also taken on the role of goalkeeping coach.
The club wishes to put on record it's thanks to John for all his hard work and effort and wishes him all the best for the future.
The club is now actively looking to seek a new Chairman & also any other new committee members with the required drive and dedication to build on the excellent foundations that John has put in place.

Bad day all round
It was a bad day for Steeton yesterday as the first team went down to Storthes Hall 3-1. Andy Holden netted the consolation goal for Steeton in a game we probably deserved a draw from.
The reserves came from behind to level things up at 2-2, thanks to two Jonson Butterfield strikes. Before we were reduced to nine men following injuries to Martin Foulger and Ben Sutcliffe lead to Overthorpe winning the game 4-2.
Today's game at Bay Athletic has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Today's reserve game at home to Wibsey has also fallen foul to the weather, despite switching the fixture to Wibsey yesterday the game was postponed following an 11am pitch inspection.
Steeton Under 18's clinched the Under 18 league title after drawing 1-1 with Oxenhope Under 18's in the second of their double headers. Steeton took the lead in the first half after a surging run from Joe Mason on the right hand side lead to his cross being smartly turned in by Ben Sutcliffe.
The visitors levelled on the stroke of halftime when Josh Hardisty handled outside the box and Lewis Hopkinson fired in a great free kick.
The conditions spoilt the game from being a free flowing spectacle and the point means Steeton become the first team to retain the Under 18 title.
