Following the recent AGM, Chris Edwards is the new Chairman of Buckley Town Football Club.
We caught up with Chris a few days later and he was still buzzing with excitement.
“I am extremely proud and honoured to have been appointed the new Chairman of Buckley Town Football Club. Having played for the club for many years as a junior player, followed by a brief stint in the senior squad at the age of 17, I returned to the club as a Committee Member three years ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed being back and involved with such a great club and team of people, and we have gone from strength to strength over the past few years. Even during a difficult 12 months which was impacted so heavily by COVID, the club worked hard to strengthen many areas on and off the pitch. The Senior and Junior amalgamation was a major change which will be underpinned by a new ‘whole club’ structure, set to be published in the coming weeks, and I am relishing the opportunity of being the first full club Chair and continuing to work alongside the amazing volunteers which make our club so special. Thank you to everyone involved for your support to date, and I look forward to what is sure to be an exciting future for Buckley Town Football Club.”
