Barnsley FC chief executive to retire

Barnsley Club Chief Executive, Don Rowing, is to retire at the end of the month. He's been at the club for nine years, initially as General Manager, and lately as a Director and Chief Executive.

“Don has been the unsung hero at the club. In his position you draw fire for all the poor decisions made within the club, but get little credit for the good work done.

– Patrick Cryne, Barnsley FC owner

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Barnsley and will miss working with the staff and my interaction with the fans. I have particularly enjoyed working with Patrick, but as his involvement with the club has gradually diminished and with my recent 70th birthday, I think it’s time to blow the final whistle. I will continue to support the club as a season ticket holder and wish the club and its fans every success.”
