Barrow Raiders have today announced the departure of Chairman David Sharpe and fellow Director Dawn Knowles.
David became a director for the first time in 2011, later assuming the role of chairman in 2012. On returning to the board in the autumn of 2017, at a time when the club was again in financial difficulties and firm leadership was required, they have worked tirelessly, together with provisions of financial support during this second term to improve a situation inherite
In a statement to fellow board members David said “it had been very difficult to refuse the request to return to the board as chairman in the club’s hour of need. The task of allocating sufficient time to running both the Club and my own business has proved to be even greater than I had envisaged”. He now believes the club would benefit from fresh leadership and new board members in order to take the Club forward.
The Board of Directors would like to thank David and Dawn for all they have achieved in their time at the Club and wish them well in the future.
