Torquay United AFC has pleasure in announcing the appointment of Melanie (Mel) Hayman and George Edwards to the Board of Directors with immediate effect.

Clarke Osborne, Chairman said; “I am delighted to announce these appointments as we commence the building of the Board and the process of providing the Club with strong, able and influential direction.

“Mel has been directly associated with the Club for over 20 years and has been a dedicated supporter since attending her first game (Torquay United v Newport) in 1988. Her father Ian was a former Director of the Club and now a Life President. A qualified accountant with a thorough knowledge of football business, Mel will be a great asset to the Club as we progress to an exciting and successful future.

“My trusted colleague George is already bringing his experience and ability to the Club and is reorganising the way the Club operates and functions across the entire spectrum of its activities.
I expect that more appointments will be made as we progress, and discussions continue.”
