Dan will be continuing his role as Chairman of the Youth section whilst serving as a Director for Margate FC.
“I am delighted to be able to play a part in helping the club move forward as one. I look forward to the upcoming season, which will hopefully be a successful one with Andy (Drury) and the first team and all of the Youth section”.
Secondly, joining the Board as a Non-Executive Director is Sarah Higgs. Sarah has also been integral in helping build the Youth section to its current size, having been a committee member over the past two and a half years.
