WITTON Albion have two new directors.

Graham Wood, who took over as acting chairman when John Salmon stepped down in January, confirmed that Alan Jackson and Julian Jackson have joined the board.

"Since accepting the position of acting chairman at Witton Albion one of my prime objectives has been to strengthen the board of directors with the appointment of likeminded Wittoners who recognise the importance of a grassroots club to the local community," said Wood.

"I am pleased to announce the return of Alan Jackson who has accepted the role of community liaison director and will continue the great work he has been doing with local schools, Witton Albion Juniors and other local junior football teams through our ball boy experience days and free season tickets.

"The other appointment is that of Julian Jackson who, along with his fellow directors at U Lock-It Limited, has done so much to improve the appearance of the stadium in recent months. He has also played for the club in the past and is a regular at home games."

Wood added that he hopes to announce further appointments soon.
