Long serving Albion chairman stands down

Ossett Albion Rugby Club chairman and manager Eric Gilchrist has stepped down from both roles with the Evo Stik side due to other working commitments.

Gilchrist will continue as manager, a position he has held for seven years, until the end of the season.

A club statement said:  "The club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Eric for the vast amount of work he has done both on and off the pitch over the last decade and not least his agreement to see the current season out prior to the transition to the appointment of a new managerial regime."

Albion, currently in the Evo Stik League Premier Division, did not reveal who would takeover as the new chairman.
