KIM CHAPMAN, who had been acting chairman since February, was elected to fill the position permanently at Henley Town’s annual meeting on Sunday.
Chapman also won the Eric Bailey Memorial Cup for the person who had contributed most to the club in the previous 12 months.
Other officers elected: John Bailey (president); Phil Bell (vice-chairman); Tony Kingston (secretary); Michael Trendall (treasurer); and Craig Sumner (development officer).
The committee will be completed by Amanda Griffin, Andy Bryan, Craig Hiscock and Simon Johnson. Geoff Biggs was elected a life member.
It is clear that the club has moved forward but the problem of attracting younger helpers and the constant battle to make ends meet were featured in the secretary’s report.
