Huddersfield directors duo resign

Huddersfield Town

Roger Armitage and Ralph Rimmer have stepped down from Huddersfield Town's board of directors.

The pair joined the board in 2003 when they were part of the new company that bought Town out of administration under previous chairman Ken Davy.

"Roger and Ralph have both done an outstanding job over the past six years," Davy told the club's website.

"Without their commitment it would have been impossible for us to have escaped from the traumas of administration."

New chairman David Hoyle added: "The club would like to thank Roger and Ralph for their commitment and the contribution they have made here at Huddersfield Town during their near-six year period as directors.

"They joined during a very difficult period and helped move the club to where it is now.

"Everyone at the club would like to wish Roger and Ralph every success and all the best for the future," he added.
