Essex County FA chief executive Phil Sammons has announced his intention to stand down from his position within the organisation at the County Office in Chelmsford once a successor has been appointed.
Sammons, who was appointed in January 1997, said: “With a new board and council structure, the development of new working practices and the greater involvement of the FA in the Association’s affairs, I feel it is the right time to move on.
“It will also give the board the opportunity to appoint someone who will be able to deliver their plans for the Association in the next five to ten years and to drive the business forward. I will be forever grateful to the board of trustees who gave me the opportunity to work in football.
“I now look forward to a successful handover period with the new postholder in order to ensure the high level of customer service we currently provide is maintained.”
