Southampton chairman steps down
Southampton
Michael Wilde has resigned as chairman of Southampton, and will relinquish the role with effect from Wednesday.

He has also stepped down as a director of the club, and as vice-chairman and a director of parent company Southampton Leisure Holdings plc (SLH).

Wilde, 54, replaced Rupert Lowe as Saints' club chairman in June 2006.

A statement read: "Michael led the initiative to secure new investment monies. He has been unsuccessful in those endeavours."

It added: "In consequence of this, the board reassigned the task of raising new funds to other directors of SLH.

"Michael remains a significant shareholder and intends to continue attending Southampton matches as an avid supporter."
