Finn Harps chairman steps down

Finn Harps have confirmed that chairman, John Campbell, has stepped down from with immediate effect.

Mr Campbell was first elected to the Harps board of Directors during the 2006 season.

After the 2007 AGM, Mr. Cambpell was elected Chairman of the club and was re-elected to the position again in 2008.

At the start of the 2008 season, Mr Campbell became the club's first ever Club Promotions Officer - a position that is part-funded by the Football Association of Ireland.

At that time, Mr Campbell said that he would probably step down for the position of chairman at some point during the 2008 season.

"I would like to thank everyone connected with the club for their help, guidance and advice during my time as Chairman", said Mr Campbell.

"I would especially like to thanks the club's fans for their support - it was so very much appreciated. It was a great honour to represent this club as Chairman - a position that very few people have held in the history of the club.

"However, the job of CPO has meant that it has been virtually impossible to give as much time to the role of Chairman and I felt now was the time to step down.

"I look forward to working with the fans, schools and community groups in my job as CPO."

The Board of Directors will fill the position of chairman in the coming weeks.
