FOOTBALL - Bromsgrove Sporting vice-chairman Boorn steps down due to health concerns

Bromsgrove Editorial 5th Jun, 2024 Updated: 6th Jun, 2024   0

BROMSGROVE Sporting’s vice-chairman Richard Boorn has stepped down from the role due to health concerns.

Boorn only took on the vice-chairman role at the club in December last year after Rod Brown’s appointment as chairman.

The board confirmed Boorn’s departure, owing to health advice, and chairman Brown admits the club will miss his influence behind the scenes.

Brown said: “Although Richard will continue to fully support the club from the terraces, his governance and attention to detail on the finances role he undertook will be missed.

“Personally, I have enjoyed the short time we have been working together since joining the board in December.

“He should be very proud in helping to stabilise the club, especially as we are now looking to continue its development.

“His health and wellbeing is obviously far more important to him, his family and everybody at Sporting. We cannot thank him enough for his contribution to date.”

Boorn said: “I am sorry I have had to step away from my role at the club. People who know me will be aware I have never sought a position at the club, but it became very clear in December that if Rod and I had not stepped in, the club would have folded.

“I am leaving with a number of emotions; firstly, sadness that I need to step away from this project at this club that I love. Secondly, pride in the fact I leave the club in a better state than I found it and, finally, excitement at the future for Bromsgrove Sporting.

“There are many things being worked on that will raise the club to where it needs to be and I am confident, under the management of Paul Smith, the football journey is going places and I look forward to being on the terraces to watch it happen.”
