Wagstaff & Oxenforth step down


Scunthorpe United have announced today that Directions’ Keith Wagstaff and Jason Oxenforth are stepping down from their roles.

Chairman Peter Swann told the Official Website: “Both Keith and Jason have contributed greatly towards the football club, not only with their unpaid time, but have, on a regular basis, been a source of important advice for me which sometimes goes unnoticed, in the wider scheme of things.”For their contribution I am happy to say that Keith and Jason have accepted my offer of Vice President roles within the football club and will represent the club both home and away with their continued support.

“This is a very exciting time for the club and with the new stadium on the horizon, new substantial investment both in infrastructure and on the field recruitment, it means we as a family are committing wholeheartedly to the project ahead.

“With that investment and potential investor recruitment in the pipeline it was imperative we change the board structure to mirror that and I must say that both Keith’s and Jason’s response and approach to the situation has been as ever, very professional, with the future and best interests of the club at the forefront of both their minds.

“On behalf of the Board I wholeheartedly thank them for their loyalty and commitment to Scunthorpe United Football Club and long may it continue.”
