RUSTHALL chairman Joe Croker begins the search for a new vice-chairman after the news that Dave Rusbridge will step down from the position ahead of Sunday’s Annual General Meeting.

“Dave will continue as the club’s Junior secretary and remain as a member of the senior committee,” said a club statement.

“Dave’s decision to resign from his vice-chairman role is to attract new blood to the club with the view that the incoming vice-chair will eventually become chairman/person of the club.

“The club are keen to appoint someone with experience of senior football and the credentials to drive the club forward in the future.”

Interested parties should contact Joe Croker by email at joe.croker@gmail.com.

Meanwhile, a Rusthall Legends XI will play an Arsenal Charity XI – made up of former Gunners and celebrity supporters - at the Jockey Farm Stadium on Sunday 21 July (13:00) to raise funds for Hospice in the Weald and Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust.

Tickets will be priced at £7 (adults), £4 (concessions and those aged between 13-17) and £2 (aged 6-12), while under fives will be admitted free of charge.

Advanced tickets will be on sale from the club on Saturday, when Rusthall kick-off their pre-season campaign with a home game against Peacehaven & Telscombe, which kicks off at 15:00.
