Mark Jenner replaces Paul Markland as Hythe Town chairman

Monday 15th March 2021

HYTHE TOWN have appointed Mark Jenner as their new chairman with immediate effect.

Jenner has served as a director of the Reachfields Stadium club for five years and prior to that he has been chairman of Folkestone Invicta and Ashford Town over the last twenty years and replaces Paul Markland at the Isthmian League South East Division club.

A club statement said: “Paul Markland has decided to stand down as chairman having devoted many years to the role in order to pursue other interests but will remain at the club as Honorary President and keen supporter.

“Mark thanked Paul for his support and said that this was a very difficult time for all non-league football clubs as the pandemic has meant only a handful of games have been played in the last year.

“Whilst certain Covid relief grants had been available, standing costs still had to be met without any income and it was uncertain how many of the previous squad of players could be retained.

“However, plans were being made to start the new season in August and the whole board were optimistic that the clubs recent successes on the pitch could be continued.”
