Hornets confirm board resignations
The four remaining members of the Rochdale Hornets board of directors have given notice of their intention to resign from their position at the club. The directors - Denise Dawson, Martin Hall, Mark Harris and Gavin Reynolds - took the step after outlining to members a number of concerning issues and several difficulties and obstacles they have uncovered and encountered since being elected in July. The board also cited the need for major changes to be made within the club and felt as a board it did not have the required support of the members to execute this.
A statement from the board reads: “After outlining the exact details of a number of pressing issues to members we felt that we had no other alternative. We are all committed to ensuring a smooth handover and will remain in a supporting role until the election of a new board. We are willing to assist the new board with sharing information and knowledge regarding the club’s current situation, and to help complete any current ongoing projects that have been worked. At the same time we wish the club the very best success in these testing times.”
