Lincoln City chairman Steff Wright has announced that he will be standing down as chairman of the club at the end of the season.

Wright, who has been on the board of directors at the club since 2001, released a statement today outlining his intentions. However it did not disclose his reasons for relinquishing the headship of the League Two club.

“Although, since I joined the Board almost 10 years ago, we haven’t achieved the promotion we all strive for, we have built a Club with a fantastic spirit and a solid foundation from which to develop,” Wright said in the statement which was released on the Imps’ official website.

“Chris Sutton and his management team are stamping their mark on the team and I have every confidence that Chris will have the Club pushing for promotion next season.”

Wright also announced that in the past year he had been passing ‘more responsibility to the rest of his board in order to secure a smooth transition’- possibly hinting at a current board member taking on the role.

He has been chairman of Lincoln City since 2006- a period which has seen the club participate in the League Two playoffs as well as fight against relegation from the club.

The new chairman of the Imps will be decided in June, when the remaining board members vote on the issue.
