Concord Rangers chairman to step down

Antony Smith has announced that he is to step down as Concord Rangers chairman.

Smith has been at the club for the past 21 years, overseeing the club’s rise from the Essex Senior League to the National League South.

He opts to step aside with the National League South club having appeared at Wembley in the FA Trophy final earlier this month.

Smith explained as part of a statement: “The past few months and days have taken their toll on me personally and my love of the game has dwindled.

“The decision-making at all levels of our game has been an embarrassment over the past months. I feel all I have done over the last year is battled for the good of non-league football.

“21 years is a long time as chairman of a club, but I leave it in a good place, with a very healthy cash reserve and no debt, also overseeing around £750k in ground improvements to facilitate our position in the National League.”
