Paul Hunt has resigned as chairman of Huntingdon Town after four years.
Hunt’s departure follows differences of opinion on the way forward for the United Counties League club. Directors Trevor Pryor, Tony Bowkis, Bill Sinclair and John Scarborough have also relinquished their positions.
Huntingdon won promotion, four trophies and achieved a runners-up finish in the Premier Division during Hunt’s tenure at the helm.
Hunt said: “Myself and the board of directors brought in a great deal of money through fundraising, the staging of events, sponsorship and other major sports which may move to Jubilee Park.
“The club will continue to benefit from our legacy and we move on in the knowledge we did our best.

“I wish both Huntingdon Town FC and Huntingdon Rowdies well for the future, and I will be looking for another local club or charities in which to invest my time and money once the dust has settled.”
Former mayor of Huntingdon, Doug McIlwain, was unanimously voted in as the club’s new chairman at an emergency meeting on Monday night while Russell Yezek will remain as club secretary. Hunt claims he and the departing directors were not invited to that meeting.

Yezek said: “I would like to thank Paul and his fellow directors for all the work they have done over the years.
“We did not feel their ideas for moving the club forward were the right ones. There is no animosity on the club’s part.”
Ian Edge will continue as manager but Yezek admits next season may be one of transition for a club who lost their final 18 games of last term.
