The Western Bulldogs have confirmed that Director Matthew Croft has stepped away from his position on the Board.
The Club’s Football Director for over three years, Croft relinquished his position to concentrate on new business pursuits.
“Leaving the Board at the moment is a hard decision, but I’m really confident with where the Club is. All four teams are in a really strong position,” Croft said at the Club’s Annual General Meeting on Wednesday night.
“I’ve had a wonderful time on the Board…to give back to the Club which gave so much to me over the journey.
“In the period that I was at the Club we were successful enough to win a premiership.
“To hear the stories from people who’ve been associated with the club, and people who I knew when I played…and being on the board at that time, was an absolutely fantastic experience.”
In other changes to the Bulldogs’ Board of Directors, vice-president Kylie Watson-Wheeler and Fiona McGuachie were re-elected for a further three-year term.
Jerril Rechter, a current Board-elected Director, was appointed into the casual vacancy left by Croft’s resignation.
And Belinda Duarte, who had been serving as an observer at recent Board meetings, was officially appointed as a Director under the Club’s constitution.
