Goals Soccer Centres plc, a leading operator of outdoor small-sided soccer centres with 50 sites, including four in California, USA, announces that its CEO, Andy Anson, has tendered his resignation from the Company, and from the Board, as he has decided to take the role of CEO at the British Olympic Association where he is already a Board member.
Andy has committed to remain with Goals for the next six months to assist in resolving the Company’s previously-announced accounting and VAT issues.
Above and beyond this, Goals remains focused on moving the business forward in both the UK and the US
Michael Bolingbroke, Chairman of Goals said:
“Whilst Andy’s decision is disappointing, particularly at this challenging time for the Company, the Board respects Andy’s decision to take a role that is a once in a lifetime opportunity for him. We are very grateful for all that he has done for Goals and are pleased that he will continue to fully support the Company to secure the best outcome in the discussions with our auditors and HMRC.”
