'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Jeremy Wray Issues Statement On Town Departure

'AT THE specific request of the club's majority shareholder, Andrew Black, I have been replaced as Chairman of STFC by Sir William Patey at a meeting of the Board on Friday 12th October.

'Having met Sir William, I am confident he will bring great value to the Board of STFC, but, after much reflection, I have concluded that it would be inappropriate to accept the offer to remain on the Board and as such intend to terminate my engagement with the Club.

'When I agreed to take over as Chairman it was on the understanding that the Board would confirm the appointment of Paolo Di Canio as manager and would commit to a three-year plan to support him, his management staff and players in the attempt to achieve promotion back to the Championship.

'I am proud to have overseen significant progress towards this goal and privileged to have stewarded the Club through one of the most exciting periods in its history.

'Given my commitment over the last 18 months, I am obviously sorry not to see the project through to completion, but am confident that the Club is in excellent shape to achieve back-to-back promotions.

'I have thoroughly enjoyed my association with STFC and wish the club and its magnificent fans every success in the future.'
