Ritchie Jeune takes over as Kettering Town chairman

Aug 9th, 2012

Ritchie Jeune (who was part of the consortium to take over the club from former chairman Imraan Ladak) has been confirmed as the new chairman of Kettering Town. Jeune took over as interim chairman when George Rolls had to step down following his five year ban imposed by the FA.

Jeune said: “This was not the position I thought I would be taking up when I arrive at the club. I do not think anyone would have thought that in such a short space of time things could have changed in the fashion that they have. At the end of a very hard season for the players, staff and fans, a new dawn was announced and traction was starting to be made only to have the chairman banned from football and the club pushed back into uncertainty.

Jeune continued: “I hope that now we have an agreed board structure and a first team in place, that a large proportion of that uncertainty can be lifted. There are still many off field issues to be resolved but the board and my current focus is to get the club to a position where it can rebuild, get back to the day-to-day task of being a football club and winning games.”
