Pettit named new Chair

Andrew Pettit has become the new Chair of Grimsby Town Football Club.

Jason Stockwood had held the position since 1878 Partners Ltd assumed control of the club in 2021 and May 2024 marked the end of an agreed three-year tenure.

On becoming the new Chair, Andrew Pettit said, “I am honoured to have the opportunity to take over as Chair of Grimsby Town from Jason. It will be very hard to follow such an exceptional leader.

“I would like to thank him on behalf of the board for all his energy, hard work and wisdom as we started this journey together. Also, as Jason and I will be continuing to work closely together as we have over the last 3 years, it will be very much a case of evolution rather than revolution. For my part, I will do my best to guide and improve the tremendous team we are assembling at the club on both the playing and non-playing side.

“We will look to build on the progress that has been made and the lessons that we have learned since 1878 became the majority shareholder of our club in 2021.”

Jason Stockwood added, “Andrew and I have a great partnership where we truly do everything together and share the workload in the club. We agreed at the start of this journey to serve three-year terms as Chair, and that time has come to an end this month.

“It has been one of the greatest privileges of my life and a brilliant learning experience. I believe we now have all the building blocks and people in place to advance further both on and off the pitch.

“I look forward to continuing our work together, and I will be as engaged as ever in trying to improve the club. I know he will do a brilliant job for all of us, albeit with slightly less swearing and smarter clothes. Thank you for all your support and see you at BP soon.”

Jason will become Vice-Chair and continue to work closely with Andrew and the rest of the board.
