DAVID McGEE TAKES OVER PLC HOT SEAT

David McGee will take over as Wycombe Wanderers Trust`s Supporters` Director on the PLC board following the recent resignation of Keith Blagbrough from the role.

At a Trust board meeting on 12th January, there was unanimous support for David taking on the role until the election of a Supporters` Director by the Trust members. To ensure that David has a manageable workload, the Trust`s Vice-Chairman, Francis Glenister, will take over as the Trust`s Chairman until the AGM and elections in the spring.

Francis commented, “It is vital that the Trust maintains its two representatives on the Wycombe Wanderers PLC board. The Trust`s board needs to appoint an appropriate person promptly to undertake the vacant PLC board role for the period until elections are held.”

“David is a Director of a Wycombe based firm and understands how businesses work. He will bring good experience to the boardroom along with his long standing support and passion for Wycombe Wanderers. I speak for the entire Trust`s board when I say that we are delighted that he has agreed to take on this role and we know that he will do a great job.”

Upon accepting the role as Supporters` Director David commented, “This is a very difficult role which comes with a great deal of responsibility. I`m looking forward to the challenge.”

In his new role, David will work alongside Ian Mather, the Trust`s Founders` Director.

David and Ian will be in the Vere Suite before Saturday’s match against Grimsby to answer questions and queries from supporters.

Full details of the Trust’s AGM and elections will be made available to members in due course.
