PORTLAND United are on the hunt for a new chairman after long-serving incumbent Robin Satherley chose to retire from the hotseat.

Satherley is expected to address Blues’ staff in his final duty as chairman during the Blues’ AGM on Wednesday, August 12.

Under Satherley’s tenure, the Blues have enjoyed rich success including back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017 when topping the Wessex Division One and Premier standings respectively.

In a brief statement, Portland welcomed applications for the position.

The Blues said: “Robin Satherley announced at a full committee meeting his retirement as chairman of Portland United.

“Portland require nominations for the position of club chairman.

“Nominations must be received by our secretary no later than midnight on Wednesday, August 5.”

Portland are currently preparing for the new Wessex Premier League season under new boss Callum Brooks.
