Norwich City's Managing director, Steve Stone, is leaving the club to 'pursue new challenges'.

Stone was appointed to the board and made Managing Director in March 2017 after a re-structuring at the club.

Stone became a popular figure at the club and oversaw a scheme to raise money in order to redevelop Colney Training Ground. The scheme allowed fans to invest a minimum of £500 in return for 8% interest.

The Canaries originally wanted to raise £3.5 million to allow temporary buildings at Colney to be replaced with a new permanent structure, gym facilities and to complete pitch improvements.

Stuart Webber remains as Sporting Director and will continue to oversee player transfers and the on-going development of Colney and the Academy.

Steve Stone's former responsibilities will be absorbed by Ben Kensell (Chief Operating Officer) and Zoe Ward (Business and Project Director).They will be joined by Stuart Webber to form a new executive committee who will report to the Board.

The Annual General Meeting is set to take place next month where the Canaries' accounts will be finalised.

“I’d like to thank everyone at Norwich City for all of their hard work and support during a testing period for the Club.

“The time is now right for me to seek a new challenge, but I wish the Board, staff and supporters of this great club all the very best for this season and the seasons ahead.”
