Fulham Deaf FC confirm that Grant Payne, the Club Secretary left the deaf football club late last year by mutual consent. We stress that there was no controversy behind his departure from FDFC.

Jack Harding has kindly stepped into the role of Club Secretary for the reminder of this season. Head Coach Chris McGinn will also assist Jack in resolving any pitch issues for the rest of the season. We thank them both for their continued assistance to support the club in our time of need.

Christof Niklaus, our Honorary President, has worked on a restructuring plan for Fulham Deaf FC with some final decisions to be made by the FDFC committee before completion. Once this restructure has been finalised, it will be revealed to the players and members at the end of season AGM.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Grant for his work as Club Secretary in the first half of this season during 2013 and we wish Grant well.

Nick Beese – FDFC Chairman
