Trio apply to join Leics board

Three potential new directors have made applications to join Leicestershire’s board at the annual meeting in the New Year.

The trio’s applications for places on the board were received before the November 30 deadline but Leicestershire have yet to announce who they are.

Leicestershire currently have just four directors – new chairman Paul Haywood, Tony Hill, Andrew York and John Allen – but they can go up to as many as seven.

The existing board members agreed to resign en masse to head off the threat of an extraordinary general meeting called by disgruntled members following the resignation of former chief executive David Smith in late June.

That decision does not preclude those board members from seeking re-election at the AGM which has been scheduled for Grace Road on February 9.

The full list of prospective board members will be known early in the New Year when Leicestershire send out voting papers to their members.

Leicestershire have moved to strengthen their board in recent weeks by co-opting local businessmen Philip Bland and Shahid Sheikh.

With a six-figure loss likely to be announced for the year, Leicestershire hope to use Bland and Sheikh’s business acumen to increase sponsorship and revenue streams.
