Community Club Further Strengthens Board
We are pleased to announce that the club has strengthened the existing skillset of the Community Club Board with two new members, Liz Lockie & Paul Elliott. Paul and Liz were voted onto the Community Club Board by the existing Board Members at a Board Meeting on the 26th March, following the announcement of the termination of this season.
Liz joins the Basingstoke Town Community Club Board and brings with her a wealth of accounting experience having spent 29 years working for a large multi national American company in a variety of business finance roles. Her experience of providing financial guidance will be invaluable as we move through the next exciting phase for the club. An avid football fan and Tottenham Hotspur supporter, her most recent role was as Treasurer at Fleet Town FC. ‘Having worked in non-league football before, it is fantastic to join the club in possibly it’s most challenging time in it’s history’ Liz said ‘the plans for the club are wonderful and I cannot wait to get started.’
Paul will also join the Basingstoke Town Community Club Board bringing with him extensive business skills and experience in the Marketing sector and will take up the role of Commercial Manager in preparation for football returning to the town during the 2020/21 season. Paul currently runs his own business in the North Hampshire area. He is well respected for his excellent customer service and we look forward to him bringing his commercial enthusiasm to the club to increase the number of sponsors and grow the Club Brand. “I am delighted to be offered this opportunity to join the club and I look forward to helping us through this challenging yet exciting period” Paul said. Paul has more recently spent time as Commercial Manager and Vice Chairman at Fleet Town FC.
The new members were welcomed to the club by Chairman Terry Brown after holding meetings with them over the last few months. ‘As everyone knows, getting expertise on a voluntary basis is very hard, so for us to add the skillsets that Liz and Paul bring with them, particularly in the current climate is exceptional, and shows the way the club is moving forward. As a Board we are already planning for next season, a season where we will be playing back in Basingstoke and I can only reiterate my thanks to all the supporters and volunteers that helped us last season.’
