Steve Waggott to leave
"Steve, the board of directors and I have agreed that Steve will leave his role as CEO at the end of the month, but he will continue to assist me during the transfer window on reshaping the first-team squad for the forthcoming season."
Never the most popular of the club's heirarchy so not surprisingly Steve Waggott's role as CEO has been terminated and from July Managing Director Steve Kavanagh will oversee the day-to-day running of the club.
Waggott has faced a lot of stick from keyboard warriors including me on occasion, no one likes to see people lose their jobs but it was abundantly clear to most outsiders that with delicate finances (to put it lightly) a chairman, deputy chairman, a chief executive and a managing director was a tiny bit excessive.
Some of the attacks got personal, which Waggott didn't deserve and taking the job over from Peter Varney was always going to be difficult, akin I suppose to replacing Curbs as team manager. Nonetheless the fact remains that the club is a far worser place now than it was when Steve Waggott took over.
At the end of the day though money saved on Waggott's salary can only enhance the club as a force on the pitch.
