Quoted from Grimsby Town Football Club | Posted: May 14, 2024
Andrew Pettit has become the new Chair of Grimsby Town Football Club.

Jason Stockwood had held the position since 1878 Partners Ltd assumed control of the club in 2021 and May 2024 marked the end of an agreed three-year tenure.

On becoming the new Chair, Andrew Pettit said, “I am honoured to have the opportunity to take over as Chair of Grimsby Town from Jason. It will be very hard to follow such an exceptional leader.

“I would like to thank him on behalf of the board for all his energy, hard work and wisdom as we started this journey together. Also, as Jason and I will be continuing to work closely together as we have over the last 3 years, it will be very much a case of evolution rather than revolution. For my part, I will do my best to guide and improve the tremendous team we are assembling at the club on both the playing and non-playing side.

“We will look to build on the progress that has been made and the lessons that we have learned since 1878 became the majority shareholder of our club in 2021.”

Jason Stockwood added, “Andrew and I have a great partnership where we truly do everything together and share the workload in the club. We agreed at the start of this journey to serve three-year terms as Chair, and that time has come to an end this month.

“It has been one of the greatest privileges of my life and a brilliant learning experience. I believe we now have all the building blocks and people in place to advance further both on and off the pitch.

“I look forward to continuing our work together, and I will be as engaged as ever in trying to improve the club. I know he will do a brilliant job for all of us, albeit with slightly less swearing and smarter clothes. Thank you for all your support and see you at BP soon.”

Jason will become Vice-Chair and continue to work closely with Andrew and the rest of the board.

The below has been stated by Stockwood previously, hasn’t it? I think this was pretty much pre-determined from the beginning (although JS has made no secret how tough he’s found some of the more vitriolic comments on social media).

I'm sure this has been forecast some time ago possibly at one of the earlier forums.

Well they both sound as enthusiastic as ever and everything sounds positive - I think news on inward investment is obviously important as all good things in football today requires a massive amount of £££'s especially things like a new training complex. They intimated that the inward investment will be used for infrastructure.

I'm sure all of us hope this enthusiasm, positivity and business accumen translates to on field success but I get a feeling that with the new CEO and Artell, together with things moving on the investment side they feel they now have got all their ducks in a row so to speak to really push on.

They said player negotiations are going well so we can look forward to that soon.

My takeaway was the segment on the investment - paraphrased that it won't be spunked on the playing budget . Guessing it will go into BP, training ground and infrastructure?

Good guys, regardless of who’s in the hot seat.

Good to hear that the new money will go on the infrastructure side,  hopefully the training facilities project is one of the developments that can now proceed with more pace.

Don’t think anyone mentioned infrastructure. Pettit said new capital would be used to build on the sustainable model - so that could mean anything.
