Blackpool Football Club can announce that Michael Bolingbroke is leaving his position as Executive Chairman.

Mr. Bolingbroke has informed the Board of his decision to step down as Executive Chairman and will be leaving the Club today.

Blackpool FC Owner Simon Sadler said:

“I would like to thank Mike for the help and guidance he has given me during these early weeks of my ownership of the Club.

“Mike’s role as Executive Chairman was vital in the transition period leading to the sale of the Club and my taking over as the new owner. The groundwork laid under Mike’s leadership forms the foundation on which the Club is being rebuilt and the Board and I are grateful to him for his stewardship of the Club.

“We wish Mike all the very best in his future endeavours.”

Michael Bolingbroke said:

“It has been a great honour to have been associated with Blackpool Football Club as its Executive Chairman and I am proud of our achievements over the past few months. I can now move on knowing that the future of the Club is secure under Simon’s ownership.

“I wish the Club and its fans success in the seasons ahead.”

I think he did a great job in stabilising the club post scum. 

Or the gazette version.

Yes, kind of disappointing to see him leave as the work he has done is clear for all to see but, I also think Simon Sadler needs to bring in his own team to run it "his way" from now on.

Don't think he was ever going to stay full time?


Thanks Michael for everything you have done 😁👍

He only agreed to stay until September anyway, so I suppose it’s not totally unexpected. But I agree, a big thanks for all he’s done. 

I am sure this is all part of the process and nothing sinister. 

He leaves the club in a much better state.

I very much doubt anything sinister as he only agreed to stay until September anyway, so a longer stay probably wasn’t on the cards. I’m sure he’ll get a bigger salary at his next job too. Having worked for Man Utd and inter Milan, there will be others chasing him.
