Cheltenham Town Football Club can officially confirm that Murry Toms has decided to step down from his role as Fan Elected Director (FED) at the club with immediate effect due to personal reasons.
Murry was elected to the Board on a two-year term in April 2017 and has made a significant impact over the last 12 months.
He was instrumental in the Crowdfunder campaign that saw the club successful raise money for a new scoreboard and was a driving force behind the ‘12th Man’ campaign and the ‘Join Our Squad’ season ticket promotion.
A long-term supporter of the Robins, Murry started assisting with the media output at the club during the 2003/04 season, helping the club develop their online presence and social media following on a purely voluntary basis.
Chairman Paul Baker said: “On behalf of Cheltenham Town Football Club and the Board, I would like to thank Murry for his efforts and hard work over the last 12 months. We are all disappointed with his decision, but fully understand the reason behind it.
“Murry has been a long-term supporter of the club and since becoming a Fan Elected Director he has made a significant impact on the Board with his enthusiasm and creativity.
“We very much hope that we can continue to work with him on a voluntary and informal basis and he leaves the Board with our sincere thanks for everything.”
The club will now be in contact with the Robins Trust to discuss the role of the FED going forward.
