A new chairman of Basingstoke Town Football Club has been appointed.

Fourth-generation Dragons fan Jack Miller has taken over the role on an interim basis after Kevin White resigned last week.

As previously reported, Mr White stood down after six months in the top job and two years on the committee.

Mr Miller will be in position until the club's AGM later this year when positions on the board have been filled and a new permanent chairman can be appointed.

He said: "I’m a fourth generation Basingstoke Town fan and have been an avid supporter ever since.

"Having the club so close to my heart and joining the Community Club in January, I feel it’s important to ensure the club attracts enthusiastic people with the skills which would compliment what we already have to help the club continue in the right direction.

"Once we have a full board, we can look to elect a permanent Chairman.”

Vice chairman Colin Stoker will continue in his role, as well leading the club's Save the Camrose committee.

Speaking on announcing his resignation last week, Mr White said: "The club are in a position where it is as strong as it has ever been in my time here.

"We’ve been able to lay the foundation for the men’s first team, the women’s first team and the rest of the club is now there to kick on and become something really special.

“The work in the community is starting to gather momentum, the new Academy partnership is strong and there are more and more commercial partners coming to the club every week – again testament to the increased reputation that the club has been getting.

“When ‘elected’ Chairman, I wanted to ensure that the new members of the Community Club Board settled in correctly and gave myself up to six months to ensure they were.

"I believe that has been achieved so now is as good a time as any to depart.”
