Cullen quits as chairman
1:00pm Friday 16th August 2013 in Sport
MALVERN Town are looking for a new chairman just a week into the new West Midlands Football League Premier Division season.
Stan Cullen, who took up the post for a second time last August, has resigned from the Langland Stadium club board along with acting vice-chairman Chris Stephens.
Their departures are thought to be down to business commitments and have left Malvern without leadership at the start of the season.
It is also a crucial time for the club off the field as they continue to seek to sell their stadium and move to a new ground.
Town have called their annual general meeting for 8pm on Sunday, September 8, when they hope to elect replacements for Cullen and Stephens.
Nomination forms are available on the clubhouse notice board and Town are welcoming anyone interested.
They also want to appoint a commercial manager to increase revenue at the cashstrapped outfit.
Malvern’s league programme and social activities will continue as normal while they are without a chairman and vice-chairman.
Anyone interested in helping the club can call treasurer and football secretary Marg Scott on 01905-831327.
On the pitch, Town have lost their first two matches of the Premier Division campaign, going down 3-1 at Shifnal Town last Saturday and 5-2 at home to Wellington on Wednesday.
Malvern boss Jones was left angered by the way his team leaked goals after showing promise in the warm-up matches.
He said: “We have given eight goals away in two games — seven of them have been individual errors and we have got to cut those out.
“It was extremely disappointing.
We looked good in pre-season and have got a stronger squad than last year.”
Malvern will aim to bounce back and register their first victory when they entertain Bilston Town at the Langland Stadium tomorrow (3pm) before visiting Bromyard’s Delahay Meadow for a local derby on Tuesday (7.45pm).
Jones added: “We have to get something out of tomorrow to set us up for Bromyard.”
