Weston-super-Mare Football Club has today (Thursday) announced commercial director, Neil Keeling, will step down from his role at The Woodspring Stadium due to ‘increasing business and family commitments’.

Mr Keeling is set to retain his position as one of the directors of the board and will have a role to play in recruiting a replacement.

He said: “I hope my time as commercial director has helped the club achieve a better and more professional image both to the fans and the wider community.

“The business relationships the club has built in the past few years have formed a solid foundation for it to push on and achieve better things.

“I owe it to my family and everyone at NK Sports to now focus my time with them. The Seagulls will always play a part in my life and I will always help out where ever and when ever I can, who knows what the future may hold.”

The Seagulls’ managing director Oli Bliss said it has been a ‘pleasure’ to work with him over the past few years.

He added: “I would like to thank Neil for his support over the past few years.

“I knew he was going to be an asset to the club when I asked him to join. I have known Neil for many years but it has been a pleasure working with him. It is good he will be remaining on the board and like Neil has said, who knows what the future will hold.

“I wish him, his family and his business all the best.”
