Rugby Town have appointed Michael Moran as the club’s new commercial manager with immediate effect.

With Town enjoying a successful season on the pitch challenging for promotion to the Evostik Southern League Premier Division, the club are keen to further develop their infrastructure and off-field activities too.

Valley chairman Brian Melvin explains: “The board of directors see this appointment as an important step in further establishing the club as something the whole town can be proud of.

“Michael has a successful track record of running a large portfolio of commercial properties across the country, and we are delighted that he is bringing these skills to the club to help us maximise our potential.”

Moran, 36, is a keen football fan and has lived in Rugby for 13 years - with his retail and leisure asset management and investment business Moran RAC Ltd also based within the town.

He said: “I believe the club’s potential is immense. We have one of the best non-league grounds in the country and a town with a population approaching 100,000. I know there will be a lot of hard work ahead, but I’m looking forward at getting stuck into it.

“The club has come a long way with the development of a great facility at Butlin Road, and now we will continue this with a sustainable step-by-step commercial plan.”
