Wroxham Football Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Lee Robson to the role of Club Chairman. Lee, who moved to Norfolk in November 2015 to take up a senior post with Norwich City Council. He takes on the role in the 125th season of the club and replaces previous chairman Kevin Attree who stepped aside as his work commitments meant he had less time to devote to the football club.

Lee is no stranger to the role of a football club chairman having held the role for 10 years at Welsh League side Monmouth Town. He left that role when his work brought him across the country to Norfolk.

Taking over at Monmouth in 2005, Robson masterminded a rise up the divisions unparalleled in recent Welsh league history winning Gwent county league Division Two in his first season, gaining promotion to the Welsh league for the first time in 2007 in their 138-year history. The Kingfishers then went on to win all three Welsh League divisions between 2011 and 2104. Robson left a legacy of a well-respected Welsh league first division club.

This record attracted the committee at the Yachtsmen who are looking to rebuild a club that were relegated from Step 4 at the end of last season and Lee was invited to take on the role of Chairman.

Lee was delighted by his appointment and commented: “I’m very proud of my record in Welsh football and see no reason why we can’t have similar successes with Wroxham. All the foundations are here with great back-room staff and a fantastic new football management team. I hope I can provide maybe the leadership, energy and ideas to take the club forward and back to winning ways.”

Robson joins a Committee which includes Mark Wilkinson as Vice-Chairman and Kevin Lawn as Director of Football and Operations. These positions are all due to be ratified at the club’s AGM at the end of the month.
