Barron Steps Down
Motherwell FC News
|Thursday, August 1|
Radio Clyde (spit!) report that Hibs are interested in Stevie Hammell. Hibernian manager Bobby Williamson has money to spend, and is looking for a replacement for Ulrik Laursen who is set to move to Celtic for £1.5m. Hammell, apparently, would prefer to stay at Fir Park but appreciates the situation the club are in at the moment and knows it is doubtful whether they could reject an offer for him.
The following press release appeared on the Official Site earlier today:
Alisdair Barron today (Thursday 1 August) announced he is to step down as general manager of Motherwell Football Club after four years in the job. The Board of Directors and the interim administrator are pleased Alisdair has agreed to continue as a non-executive director and would like to thank him for the formidable contribution he made to the club as general manager.
In his role as general manager, Alisdair was responsible for the complete refurbishment of the facilities at Fir Park and worked closely with the football staff, particularly in radically restructuring youth development.
Alisdair said: “The last four years have been frantic and the last six months, a whirlwind. I have decided it is time for a bit of a rest to allow me to concentrate on other activities, particularly my chairmanship of the Trustees of Children in Distress, an organisation which is also going through radical change.
“I have enjoyed every minute of the job as general manager at Motherwell and am delighted to continue making a contribution to the running of the club at Board level. I look forward to spending Saturday afternoons at Fir Park without having to look over my shoulder to ensure everything is going smoothly.”
Time for TWO new Opinion Polls…
