Geller joins Grecians
Uri Geller
Geller is famous for his ability with silverware
Uri Geller is the new joint chairman of Third Division side Exeter City, reports BBC Radio Devon.

The world famous psychic will work alongside ex-Swansea chairman Mike Lewis and the former Scarborough supremo John Russell.

The trio will take over from chairman Ivor Doble, who outlined his determination to sell his controlling interest in the club last month.

The 55-year old, best known for his spoon-bending exploits, will be at St James Park on Friday with his son Daniel, who will be unveiled as co-vice-chairman.


I'm not a miracle worker but I will be totally devoted
Uri Geller
Geller said his role would be as a figurehead for the club who will provide inspiration for players and fans.

"I will bring a positive aura," he said.

"I will be meeting the fans, inspiring them, telling them how to support the club with their mind, body and spirit."

He added that he was not concerned that his reputation as a psychic might be damaged if the club's fortunes do not improve.

"I'm a very positive and optimistic person," he said.

"If I can drive my feelings to the fans then only good things can happen.

"I'm not a miracle worker but I will be totally devoted."
