The Dover Athletic board held the first of their monthly closed season meetings on Tuesday night. In a busy meeting the board ratified a number of items in relation to the 2012-13 season, which we’ll be announcing over the coming days.

A wide range of issues were discussed, with individual Directors reporting back on the projects they have been working on, some of which you’ll hear more about shortly.

There was one change in relation to the company officers, with Chris Oakley voted in as our new Vice-chairman. Chris takes over the role from Roger Knight. Naturally we would like to thank Roger for holding this position so successfully over the past five years. His contribution to the club has been, and will continue to be, vital in the club’s development.

Jim Parmenter remains Chairman and Frank Clarke remains Company Secretary.

It was agreed by all Directors that the session had been incredibly positive and that the club is making good headway in several areas including commercial sponsorship and our activities in the community.

We look forward to be telling you more about our progress over the coming weeks.
