Mostyn re-elected to FA Council

Mostyn re-elected to FA Council

AFC Bournemouth vice chairman Jeff Mostyn has been re-elected to the FA Council for a third successive year.

Mostyn was first elected to the FA Council in June 2012 and in his role Mostyn has discussed the major policies of the Football Association, alongside Premier League representatives and County FA's.

He spent the last 12 months sitting alongside Dagenham & Redbridge managing director Steve Thompson after the pair had been voted into the roles following a ballot between all 72 Football League clubs.

The council is made up of individuals from Premier League and Football League clubs and senior members of county FA's.

Mostyn's re-election highlights just how far the Cherries have come since Mostyn's first involvement at Dean Court.

In 2008 Mostyn was chairman of AFC Bournemouth when the club went into administration and were relegated from League One following a ten point deduction.

After failing to agree a Company Voluntary Agreement, the Cherries were handed a further seventeen point deduction for the 2008/09 season and battled bravely against relegation out of the Football League with the clubs existence on the line.

Mostyn returned to the Dean Court boardroom in June 2009 as part of a consortium with Steve Sly, Adam Murry, Neill Blake and Eddie Mitchell and was announced as Vice Chairman shortly after the takeover was completed.

Despite an ongoing transfer embargo that lasted sixteen months, the Cherries won promotion from League Two in 2010 and a year later they reached the League One Play-Offs, but failed to make it back-to-back promotions following a penalty shoot-out defeat to Huddersfield.

In November 2011 Russian Businessman Maxim Demin purchased Jeff Mostyn's 44% and Steve Sly's 6% of the football club and became AFC Bournemouth chairman Eddie Mitchell's 50-50 partner.

Jeff Mostyn remained as the clubs Vice Chairman and since the change in ownership the Cherries have witnessed a transformation off and on the pitch, with Dean Court revamped and training pitches built in Kings Park whilst on the pitch, promotion to the Championship was obtained in April 2013.

In September 2013, Jeff Mostyn was re-appointed as AFC Bournemouth chairman following Eddie Mitchell's decision to sell his families shareholding of the football club to Maxim Demin, making the Russian 100% owner of the football club.

Mitchell stood down as chairman and the decision was made to hand the role to Mostyn, the Cherries went on to set a club record finish of 10th in the second tier of English football.

Mostyn told afcb.co.uk...

"I am extremely proud to be elected by the Football League clubs to represent them, In any walk of life, It is always a huge honour to be recognised by your peers, but I am also very proud to be there representing our football club.

"I am always conscious that as chairman of the football club, I have to attain the highest standards of professionalism in everything I do, especially when hosting our visiting directors on matchdays and in my work with the various FA Committees.

"I sincerely hope that my work with the Football League clubs and the FA always reflects well on our club, as we look to grow both on and off the pitch."
