Winter leaves club

Winter leaves club

Julian Winter has stepped down from his post at chief executive of Watford Leisure PLC as the takeover by Laurence Bassini is concluded.

Winter was appointed CEO in 2008 after Graham Simpson and Mark Ashton acrimoniously exited the club and eventually took the role on full-time in order to provide some stability at the club.

He had originally joined the club in 2006 as Community Director before stepping up to the board.

Owner Laurence Bassini thanked Winter for his contribution to steadying the ship through times of peril and uncertainty:

'Watford Football Club should always be eternally grateful for the huge contribution which Julian has made in his five years here.' Bassini told the Official Site

'I would like to wish him every success in the future. Julian will always be a welcome guest at Vicarage Road.'

Many thanks and good luck in the future Julian.

There appears to be two ways of reading this article, we are either sinking or the point was made by Winter that he was to over see the sale of the club and then move on. I'm staying with the glass half full for the time being.

I'm sure it was agreed he'd leave when Bassini took over. I can't say I'm worries as a result of his departure but given a choice I'd have liked the current board to stay together.

I think it was inevitable that Bassini wants his own people in, so there was always gonna be changes, that's business. I would like to hear from GT, if he walks, then may be my glass is empty!

When a new manager arrives at a club he usually replaces the coaching staff, i don't think anyone should be surprised that the same happens in the boardroom.
