‘The Director’ is launched by Wealdstone FC’

In a highly innovative move, Wealdstone FC has launched their search not for an apprentice but for a new director to add to their board. Wealdstone, the original fan’s club have always been keen to do things differently and try out new ideas.

Prospective directors will not have to incur the wrath of Lord Alan Sugar in the boardroom they will have to impress Stones’ erudite Chairman Howard Krais. Applicants will need to submit an entry containing a document of up to 500 words on how they can add real value to the Board of the Ryman Premier club. They will also have to impress long standing team manager Gordon Bartlett as to their passion for the game of football.

Said Krais, “we are always looking to attract new blood into the club and need to keep looking in different places.  With the almost daily diet of talent and reality shows that dominate our screens we thought we might try something different. This is not a gimmick though we want to find someone who can demonstrate not only commitment to the cause but new ideas which they are able to see through to delivery.

Krais continued, “Whether in office or pub conversations, reading fans forums or listening to radio phone-ins there are lots
of people who think they have the answers for how a football club should be run. So we want to give someone the chance to help us. We are ambitious but need to strengthen our club leadership to take us to the next level off the pitch, which in turn will assist our progress on the field of play.  

‘Those ideas could be about raising money, sponsorship or development in some form that will benefit the club and our aims within the local community. We believe Wealdstone has always been a club who create trends rather than follow them. We are always open to new ideas and ways of thinking that will take us to the next level so we welcome any and all applications.”

Applications will be welcomed from anyone who feels they have the skills and abilities to add real value to Wealdstone Football Club. This might be from a current supporter or else from local business people or other members of the community, as long as they have a love of football and a desire to be part of a successful club.

“We all think we can run a football club – now there is a chance for someone to do just that” concluded Krais.  To apply, email Howard Krais at:  howardkrais@googlemail.com
