SUFFOLK FA Vice Chair Ian Booth has stood down due to work commitments.
His decision to relinquish his place as a Director on the Suffolk FA Board was announced at Thursday night’s online Annual General Meeting.
The 67-year-old, who is sales manager of CPI Books, is also involved with running a family business, Nutshells Tea Room in Stowupland.
Ian, who joined the Board in 2015, was elected as Vice-Chair in July 2016, when Phil Lawler was also appointed to succeed David Porter as Chair.
He said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in local football, whether that has been spent coaching, managing or with my fellow Board members since I have been involved with Suffolk FA."
Ian (pictured above) continued: “The way Suffolk FA has developed has been immense, going from relegation fodder to promotion material, and I feel there is now the right team in place to move Suffolk football further forward.”
Suffolk FA Chair Phil Lawler said: “Ian has made such a valuable contribution to the restructuring of Suffolk FA over the past four years. His contribution and support to myself, the Board and county football will be sorely missed.
“On behalf of myself and the Board, I thank Ian for all his hard work and commitment to Suffolk football over the many years he has been involved in his many roles. We all wish him well with his future business ventures.”
Bruce Badcock will adopt to the position of Acting Vice Chair.
