Paula Henley has been appointed as chairwoman at Wimborne Town Football Club. A director of Henley’s Response Limited, Paula will take over from the current acting chairman Ken Stewart, who stepped back into the role after the resignation of Paul Miller earlier this year.
Paula has had football in her life from an early age, as her father played professionally for Derby County and Coventry City. She first became involved in Wimborne Town through her son.
“My son attends the excellent courses run by the club for local youngsters, and we held his birthday party in the clubhouse. I was impressed by the traditional feel of the place, the excellent facilities, and the close ties the club has built with the town. I have been looking to become involved with a local football club, and this represented the perfect opportunity.
“It’s a great time to get involved with Wimborne Town. Steve Cuss is doing an excellent job on the pitch, and I want to focus on building up the commercial side of the club. We are looking to make progress with the new ground, and my aim is to use my experience and contacts to assist the club with revenue generation, through advertising, sponsorship and media attention. The club is already blessed with a dedicated network of volunteers, and together we can further develop the links with the local community and achieve something really special.”
