Mark O’Neill has stepped down as Chairman of the Capital Football Board after 6 years in the role, as two new directors were elected to the Capital Football Board at Monday’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Mr O’Neill also relinquished his directorship on the board but after 54 years involvement with football as a volunteer says he won’t be walking away from the sport he loves altogether.
“I have appreciated the opportunity to work with the football community,” he said.
“Capital Football is in great shape and it is the right time to step back and let others continue to develop and realise the potential of football.
“I will involve myself in other ways.”
There will be two new faces on the board with the completion of Peter Maybury’s tenure.
Former Australia and Canberra United player Grace Gill has been elected to the board offering to bring a unique and valuable perspective to the role.
Gary Vandeburgt, who has 30 years as a player, referee, club and media official and competition administrator, has also been elected to the board.
In addressing the Capital Football AGM he said he will be seeking to bring to the board a fresh, neutral outlook.
Capital Football would like to thank the six candidates who put their name forward for election this year.
The Capital Football chair and deputy chair will be elected later this month at the April board meeting.
