Board Bolstered

Trust brings in more expertise to bolster Club Board

The new board of York City Football Club Limited has been bolstered by the appointment of two further directors.

Ian McAndrew and Jason McGill have been appointed as directors of the new Club ahead of the completion of the deal to takeover the business and assets of the old club.

Trust spokesperson, Paul Rawnsley, commented

"We welcome the appointment of Ian and Jason as directors of the new Club.
The appointments strengthen further the skill base of the new Board, in particular in relation to the strategic business issues, commercial matters and working towards the development of a new ground for the Club."

Rawnsley added

" Their business acumen and experience are an invaluable addition to the team that will work to make a success of our new community club."

36 year old, Jason McGill is a life long City fan and a life member of the Supporters Trust. He is Managing Director of his own packaging business, JM Packaging Ltd in Malton and brokered the agreement between the key parties, including Persimmon, BCH and the Council for the extension of the Bootham Crescent lease for a further season, rent free, and development and funding of the new home at Huntington.

McGill will have special responsibility for commercial and financial negotiations with all interested parties to establish a sound business structure for the future running of the new York City.

52 year old Ian McAndrew of the Harrison Group is a York born chartered surveyor with vast experience in all aspects of commercial property development both in York and across the region.

McAndrews role will be to assist the Club with planning issues and the redesign and subsequent construction needed for the upgrading and redevelopment of the Monks Cross stadium site to ensure the Clubs future home is of a superior, high standard.

McAndrew and McGill join the existing three directors (Steve Beck, Sophie McGill and Mike Brown) to make up the current five-strong Club Board. The appointments of McAndrew and McGill as Club directors were unanimously approved by the Trusts own Board at a meeting last Saturday.
