Howard continues by saying he will be stepping down from the current County Board once the takeover is completed and the Trust have appointed a new Board.
Howard goes on to state "upon completion of the takeover I will be gifting my shares to the Trust, but I will always be there to support the Club and to help in any way that I can, that is also true for the current non-executive Directors."
The news comes as non-exectuive Directors Mark Crook and Nathan Blake have decided to step down from their postions on the County Board. The Club would like to thank them both for their considerable contribution as Directors.
