Dave Allen Resigns

Wednesday have announced that club chairman Dave Allen has today resigned from his post with immediate effect.

Allen announced his resignation of both his chairman and director post at a board meeting at Hillsborough earlier today, just days before the club's Annual General Meeting.

A statement on the official SWFC website says: "The board would like to place on record their appreciation of Mr Allen's significant contribution during his chairmanship."

Allen had spent nearly four and a half years at the Hillsborough helm after taking control of the club from Geoff Hulley back in June 2003, and had also been on the board of directors three years previous.

Shock or what
duds
Well.......So this either leaves us up fecal creek without a paddle, or exciting times are ahead and we're about to be taken over or something? I'm thinking the former, it's the pessimistic Owls fan in me......
Placebo
I expect, or hope, the club will make some sort of comment today...
nickswfc

SuperOwls

swfcjambo

mick66owl
Just got in and misse it all FFS, whats going to happen to the club now then?

This might not be good as he take the money thats owed to him and we go in to adminatration with 10pt deducted!!
whites11
We'll see now how good/bad he was.......maybe!
chrish
Ding-dong the witch is dead. Slightly nervous, but this HAS to be a good thing in the long run. Don't know what is happening with his loans though.

Do you owe him money now?
herringthorpe
i have had time to think about todays going on at s6. the more i think about it the more i think allen as set this all up to try and make him look like he cares. well he dunt give a monkeys and neither should we about him good riddance to bad pennies
mick66owl
I don't think he would have gone unless there was someone in the pipeline to come in, I have seen on teletext that Freddie Shephard was looking to take over a club in the north east very soon, could it be us??
Holl
Who knows but however comes first must take it up or administration will happen.
will it ever happen
I can't see any point in Dave Allen forcing us into administration over his 3m debts. If we go into admin, he'll only get 10p in the pound, or something like that. If we don't get anyone for a good while then yes, we could be up the *****, but hopefully, someone will be in sooner rather than later.
