Wolverhampton Wanderers have announced the resignation of Rupert Hayward and Kevin Threlfall from the club’s board.
The duo, who have timed their departures to ensure minimum disruption ahead of the forthcoming Coca-Cola Championship season, are both leaving due to work and personal commitments.
Hayward, grandson of Wolves life president Sir Jack Hayward, said on the club’s official website: “Unfortunately, my work commitments involve me spending a considerable amount of time in eastern Europe. I therefore can’t dedicate the time that the role demands.
“It’s easier for me to leave knowing that the club is in very safe hands. First and foremost I’m a fan and I’ll be cheering on Wolves from the sidelines.”
Threlfall, who has been on the board for the past two years, said: “Sir Jack initially asked me to help form a new board and to help identify and ensure a seamless handover to prospective new ownership. So for me, it’s a case of job done.”
The club do not plan to replace the outgoing pair.
