Chairman's Message

Posted: 27.02.19

I told myself at the beginning of the season that this would be my last as Chairman and committee member of the senior section of the club – time for some younger blood.

Jim McKell

I have done nearly 20 years (between Alton Town and the new Alton FC) - so have done my bit!

Now is a good time – as the coming together of the two clubs, Alton Town and Alton United Youth, is firmly embedded after being three years together. The fact that we are all comfortable in the amalgamated Alton FC is credit to many hard-working people from both clubs over a period of time and continuing now at Alton FC with a great spirit of co-operation among our 37 teams (players, managers, parents, helpers) on a daily basis. I intend to continue in my roles on the main club (exec) committee, so I’ll still be very involved as at present.

I’m pleased to say that James Winzar has agreed to take over as Chairman of the senior section and, in effect, will do so from 1st March. Time for some younger blood indeed – he could do 20 years and still be a young man!

James, with three young football sons, has been an enthusiastic and vibrant supporter and sponsor of both the junior and senior sections of the club for a number of years. An established member of the main club (exec) committee he is no stranger to what goes on at Alton FC and I wish him well.

My sincere thanks to everyone who, over the years, has made it so satisfying, rewarding and just so much fun for me!

Cheers

Jim McKell
Chairman
