Gloucester City Football Club are pleased to announce the appointment of Ken Fagan to its board of directors.\r\n\r\nFagan has extensive experience in the Gloucestershire football scene and is a qualified referee who still officiates matches now.\r\n\r\nIn 2005, Ken became chairman of the Hucclecote Youth Football Club before taking over the role of chairman of the Gloucestershire Youth League in 2013, overseeing around 90 teams involving over 1200 children playing at under 8 to under 16 level.\r\n\r\n”I’m a football man through and through” said Ken. “When I took over as chairman of the Gloucestershire Youth League, I could see a lot of areas that could be developed and improved.\r\n\r\n”Earlier this year we were approached by the FA and I oversaw the amalgamation of both the Gloucestershire Youth League and the Stroud Youth Leagues to form the Severn Valley Youth League, which I became its inaugural chairman of.\r\n\r\n”Then a few weeks ago the club asks me to come on board and I said I would be delighted. It’s exciting times for myself and the club with the new stadium coming along.\r\n\r\n”Gloucester is on the up, on the pitch and off the pitch there’s been a lot of progress so I couldn’t be joining this great club at a better time.”\r\n\r\nGloucester City chairman Mike Dunstan says it’s very important to have someone of Ken’s experience with the local football scene on board with the club as it starts its return home.\r\n\r\n”We do have a small management board” Dunstan said. “Naturally the work load is going to increase as we start on the way home and to have somebody this experienced in football, as a player, a manager and an adminstrator, will be a great boost to the club.”\r\n\r\nRunning his own businesses, Fagan feels he has a lot to offer Gloucester City Football Club.\r\n\r\n”I’ve run my own businesses for 26 years now” he said. “I’d like to think I’ve got a fair bit of business accumen and adminstration experience that I can bring to the table.\r\n\r\n”I’m full of enthusiasm, the glass is always half full and never half empty so hopefully I can bring that to Gloucester City and things will be on an upwards curve.”
