Crouch Gets Appointed as Chairman

Crouch Gets Appointed as Chairman

Saints have confirmed Leon Crouch has taken over as chairman of the club following Michael Wilde's departure earlier this week.

Crouch, who is the second-largest shareholder behind Michael Wilde, has stepped up from his position as vice-chairman and has agreed to over see Saints promotion push.

Michael Wilde took over as the Saints chairman 9 months ago after controversially ousting his predecessor Rupert Lowe. But however the Jersey-based property tycoon officially stepped down on Wednesday having failed to attract outside investment into the club.

Leon Crouch, who is 60 years old, is a lifelong Southampton fan.

In a official statement, Ken Dulieu, the chairman of the club's PLC, said: 'I'm delighted that Leon has agreed to take on this responsibility. The directors continue to pledge their full support to George (Burley) and his team in their endeavours to win back Southampton's place in the Premier League.'

Crouch also added: 'We are united in our determination to get Southampton back into the Premiership, and that is what is really important to every Saints fan.'
