Newark Town FC is delighted to welcome local retired businessman, Paul Hatherley, to the club as senior section chairman.
Bringing a vast amount of footballing knowledge to the club, Paul started his footballing journey early on as a Newark school boy.
As well as that, he played in the Newark and Lincoln leagues as a senior, became a referee for a while, managed both senior and youth teams, chaired The Newark Alliance for a number of years and was chairman and vice-chairman of various sub-committees within the Notts FA.
He was also part of the group that reformed the club in the early nineties, responsible for both international youth tournaments in 1992 and 1993.
Having lived in the Newark area all of his life, Paul started his own business in 1969, ‘retired’ in 2002 for 14 days, set up Hatherley Commercial Services Ltd with his son and daughter and officially retired in 2015.
In his spare time, Paul is a Trustee and committee member of Newark Town Bowls Club and vice-chairman of the Newark Sports Association.
Club Chairman, Chris Wade added: “To have someone like Paul join the club with his knowledge, experience and enthusiasm is a huge asset and we look forward to the opportunities that he’ll bring to our senior side”.
