Everton Football Club have announced that Arthur Abercromby has
resigned from its Board of Directors.
Mr Abercromby was elected to the Board in 1994 and so his
departure marks the end of a ten year association.
A lifelong Evertonian, he made his name in the building trade
and was particularly responsible for overseeing the development of
the stadium during his tenure.
He said in a statement today: "For some time it had been my
intention to leave the Board of Everton Football Club at the end of
the 2003/04 season.
"Due to various circumstances and at the request of
colleagues my resignation was postponed until last week.
"I would like to thank everyone connected with Everton
Football Club and particularly the staff for the opportunity of
working with them over the years."
