Former election candidate steps down as Lincoln United chairman

He said it’s time for a change of leadership with new energy

Former Independent Lincoln General Election candidate Rob Bradley has stepped down from his role as chairman of Lincoln United after three years.

Lincoln United announced on Tuesday that Rob would stand down with immediate effect and thanked him for all his efforts at the club.

Current joint vice-chair Ian Beaumont will take the chairman’s position. Joint vice-chair Barry Clements will remain as vice-chair.

Rob said: “It’s not getting any easier to oversee the club as a sustainable organisation and it’s now time for a change of leadership with new energy and new ideas to take up the mantle.

“It’s been an honour to have held the position and I’ve enjoyed every minute. I will still be helping behind the scenes as much as I can.”

Rob, who previously campaigned to have a people’s forum, stood as an Independent candidate for the election in Lincoln, which was won by the Conservatives’ Karl McCartney.
