West Ham chief executive Scott Duxbury resigns

Scott Duxbury
Duxbury took over as chief executive under ex-chairman Eggert Magnusson

West Ham chief executive Scott Duxbury has resigned following the club's takeover by David Sullivan and David Gold last week.

Sullivan and Gold bought a 50% stake in the Londoners and immediately brought in Karren Brady, with whom they worked at Birmingham City, as vice-chairman.

And Duxbury has now stepped down, saying: "I wish Mr Sullivan, Mr Gold and Karren great success.

"I know under their stewardship this wonderful club will prosper."

Duxbury joined West Ham as the club's in-house lawyer under former chairman Terry Brown, and was subsequently promoted to chief executive by chairman Eggert Magnusson after the club was bought by an Icelandic group.

Brady said: "We thank Scott for his valued contribution and wish him every success in the future."
