Crawley Town Chairman Vic Marley to Step Down

April 29, 2013

Crawley Town chairman Vic Marley is to stand down from his role after six years at the League One club.

Marley has seen a rapid rise from non-league football to League One since becoming chairman in 2007.

Marley told the official club website: “Seeing our rise up the football pyramid has been immensely satisfying.

“The last six years have certainly been eventful. It has been an honour and a pleasure to be chairman during the most successful period in our history.

“I have had the support of some very loyal and dedicated people who fought to preserve our status through some difficult times during the early days of my involvement with the club.”

Marley joined the club’s board in 1999 when the club were playing in the Dr Martens League.

The club won the Conference title in 2011 and were promoted to the Football League for the first time in their history.

“I have enjoyed every minute of my time as chairman and for me the greatest satisfaction is seeing the club in a far better position than when I joined, doctor with a dedicated management team looking to continue the progress we have made,” added Marley.

Marley will be replaced by Dave Pottinger, who has been a director at the Broadfield Stadium for three years.

Pottinger said: “”It is an honour and a privilege that Vic recommended me to the board for the job and I am delighted to accept.

“The club is in a great position now, on and off the field, to really grow and establish itself at this level and perhaps push into the Championship.

“We have a great manager in Richie Barker and a really hard-working backroom team under chief executive Richard Low. Hopefully together we can enjoy more success.”
