SUFFOLK County Football Association chief executive Martin Head has resigned from his position.
Head announced his resignation at a Senior Board meeting on Thursday night.
His resignation comes after eight years within the role at their Stowmarket headquarters.
He said: “There have been many positive changes at Suffolk FA since I started working for the association back in 2002, changes that have significantly improved football across the county.
“However I feel now is the time for me to step down as CEO and provide the opportunity for another person to use the positive work we have already achieved and take the organisation to the next level.”
Head will remain as CEO until the end of December this year, to fulfil his obligations and assist in the recruitment of a replacement.
He is also keen to continue in an alternative role within the association in the future.
Mick Pearce, Chairman of Suffolk FA said: “As CEO Martin has made some valuable contributions over the years and has every reason to feel proud of his achievements.
“Martin is a highly respected and well-known person at grassroots football level, in addition to being the Suffolk FA delegate on the national FA committee, helping to shape the future of football across the country. With this in mind we are looking for a future role for Martin within Suffolk FA, not only to harness Martin’s passion for the game, but to allow us to continue to benefit from his valuable input within the association and to football as a whole.”
Pearce added: “As an organisation we are now focussing on appointing a new CEO and very much look forward to developing Suffolk FA’s member services and support even further.”
