Steven Day, Chief Executive of Fulham Football Club Foundation, has announced his decision to leave the organisation to take up a role as Head of Participation at The FA. Steven, who joined in December 2008, will leave his role on 9th June 2017.
Tom Barry, Chair of Trustees at Fulham FC Foundation said:
“Having been responsible for Steve’s initial recruitment and having worked with Steve for so many years it has been a great privilege to work with someone so capable and dedicated in our sector. Steve has played a key part in the Fulham Football Club Foundation leadership and driven the transformation of our Foundation, something we are all very proud of.
“On behalf of the Fulham Football Club Foundation I would like to wish Steve every success for the future and thank him for his time with us.”
“It has been a genuinely tough decision to leave Fulham after a number of years, however the chance to move to The FA to lead the football participation division nationally proved too good an opportunity to turn down. I can honestly say that my time with Fulham has been the most rewarding of my career and am immensely proud of what has been achieved over the last 8½ years.
“I am grateful for the ongoing support I have received from the Board of Trustees, as well as the excellent support from Mr Khan, Fulham’s Chairman, the Fulham players and staff, as well as many partners. The Foundation employs some of the most talented and dedicated people currently working in community sport and I very much look forward to seeing them continue to ‘build better lives through sport’ for many years to come.”
