FORMER director Mike Davis is one of two new appointments to Worcester City's board.

Davis served for more than six years during Anthony Hampson's reign as chairman but was one of three to stand down in July 2016 with Jem Pitt, one of the exiting trio, claiming they had been "deliberately excluded" from board meetings.

Hampson left in August to be replaced by Steve Goode at the helm with Worcester City Supporters' Trust chairman Dave Wood, Tom Swan and Simon Gregory joining vice-chair Colin Layland and long-time sponsor Martin Pinches in the boardroom.

Davis and newcomer Luke Cox bring to three the number of current trust directors running the club.

“They are both City fans and Mike is well known for being on the board previously,” said Goode.

“Luke works with Supporters’ Direct and both bring extra things to the table.

“They will take some of the workload from the rest of the directors while also bringing different things. I am looking forward to working with them.

“They will get involved and settled in first and once we all get together again, we will look at what extra things there are to do or what we want to be doing better.

“Eventually, they will be given roles."

Meanwhile, Goode says work continues on arranging an AGM for shareholders.

“We are still talking about it but we haven’t set a date yet, things are still being looked into and as soon as we can hold one we will," he added.

“It is one of our top priorities and a lot of work is going into that.”
