This week the club accepted the resignation of long serving committee member Dr Mike Vizzard due to illness.
Dr Vizzard has been with the club for a number of years as the Commercial Director and in that time he has helped the clubs profile to raise significantly.
As a volunteer of the club, he gave his all to everything AFC Darwen. He was the first to turn up when the renovations on the Changing rooms started in the Summer of 2019, knocking down walls and being on hand to take the club to the next level. Even on match days he would be helping out in any way he could.
ChairPerson Sarah Hindle said "It has been great to have Mike around the club as he has been a personal friend of ours for a number of years. We will be sad to see him go but I can fully understand the circumstances. I can't thank him enough for everything he has done here at AFC Darwen and we wish him well for the future".
On behalf of everyone at AFC Darwen, we would like to wish Dr Mike Vizzard and his family all the best. Thank you.
