Paul Ritchie Appointed as Director - By Steven Mew

Brechin City FC is delighted to confirm the appointment of former player Paul Ritchie as Director of the Club.

A prolific goalscorer during his playing days, Paul is a familiar face to City supporters having plyed his trade at the Glebe over two spells whilst his father John also served the club with distinction as a player, coach and manager.

Chairman Kevin Mackie commented, "I am delighted that Paul has agreed to join the Board of Directors as we continue on our journey to bring both a sustainable financial model to the club and a successful team on the park.

"Paul brings with him a great passion for the game and also a huge amount of financial knowledge that will help the club as we move forward with our future plans both on and off the field."

Speaking on his appointment, Paul said, "First of all I would just like to say I am absolutely delighted to be joining the Board of Directors at the Club. As some fans at the Club will know both myself and my dad, John have had a long-standing association with the Club over many years. My dad was a player, coach and manager at the Club over 4 decades and I have many fond memories as a young lad standing on the old mound watching him play.

"I was also fortunate enough to play for Brechin over 2 spells and was part of the Division 2 Championship winning teams in the 1989/90 and 2004/05 seasons.

"Since 2004 I have also embarked on a career in Finance, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with Henderson Loggie in Dundee. I have moved on to hold senior finance roles in various organisations across the oil and gas engineering services, electronics and manufacturing sectors mainly in Aberdeen. I hope to bring that experience to bear in my role as a Director and to support the Club in any way I can.

"The team has made a very positive start to the season and I look forward to supporting the Club in its ultimate goal of regaining league status and being able to compete at that level. This will be by no means easy - the Highland League is very competitive and the play-offs are never easy to come through but I'm sure with everyone behind the team we have in place, we will succeed."
