Darren Woollard named Bishop's Stortford FC vice-chairman

By Michael Vaughton

Darren Woollard is looking forward to strengthening the link between the boardroom and the terraces after being named Bishop’s Stortford’s new vice-chairman.

Woollard, who played for the club in the early 1990s, has been chairman of the supporters’ club for five years and been a director for two years. He is taking on the role following the death of club legend John Turner in September.

And the former midfielder, 54, wants the Blues to be united on and off the field as they challenge for promotion in the Bostik League, Premier Division.

“You can’t fill John’s boots because he’d been in the game for a long, long time and knew a hell of a lot about how the club was run and all the league rules,” said Woollard, who runs Harlow-based business DMG Freight Services.

“The way I’m looking at doing it is to try to get the club and the supporters as one and try to drum up support for the club off the field and on the terraces.

“I want to be a friendly face and anyone can come and chat to me about how things at the club are going.”

Woollard lives with his partner Jacqui in Bishop’s Stortford. Daughters Ellie, 14, and Roni, 11, attend games, with the former playing the music on matchdays at the ProKit UK Stadium and also helping him do updates if they are in charge of the club’s Twitter account at away games.
