Position

Chairman

Pen Pic

Jeff Mostyn first held the position of AFC Bournemouth Chairman in 2007, taking over the club at a point when it was struggling financially.

He had previously obtained the golden share in the football club, a legacy that was held by the AFC Bournemouth Community Mutual (Supporters Trust) following the clubs previous administration in 1997.

This saw Mostyn and former vice chairman Steve Sly takeover the club, but in 2008 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 as the administrators completed the sale of the club to Sport-6, with Mostyn standing down as chairman after funding the clubs administration process.

The Cherries went on and battled bravely against relegation out of the Football League with the clubs existence on the line and after avoiding the drop, the club was sold again with Mostyn returning 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.

Mostyn however remained as the clubs Vice Chairman and in August 2013 Mostyn was re-elected to the FA Council.

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.

In December 2012 he was also elected on to the Football League Board

On 19th September 2013, Jeff Mostyn was re-appointed as AFC Bournemouth chairman.

The move followed 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.
