Change of Chairmanship

  • Men's

Bromley Football Club would like to share with supporters an update from the board of directors following recent formalisation of roles ahead of the 2019/20 season.

The most significant change sees the Chairmanship of Bromley Football Club handed over by Jeremy Dolke to fellow director Robin Stanton-Gleaves.

A summary of the roles can be seen below;

  • Chairman: Robin Stanton-Gleaves
  • Vice Chairman: Jon Plassard
  • Director of Football: Jeremy Dolke
  • Vice President: Paul Greenwood

Since becoming Chairman in 2001 Jeremy Dolke, alongside wife Julia, have overseen a remarkable turnaround for the Ravens from part-time football to full-time football with no relegations and three promotions to the summit of Non League. They also oversaw the building of the Venue Suite, 3G training pitches and most importantly regained the freehold of the stadium in 2006, helping to secure the long term future of Bromley Football Club.

Jeremy Dolke said, “It’s been a long journey from becoming Chairman of Bromley Football Club in 2001. We’ve had three promotions along the way, 2005 to the Ryman Premier, 2007 to the National League South and 2015 to the National League. The promotion that meant the most to me was 2007, as we pushed the boundaries to get there, even if it was the hard way through the play offs. With all the success and highs were some challenging times and lows behind the scenes, particularly the promotion season in 2015. Julia supported me throughout the whole journey and without that support the Club would not be what it is today.”

On passing the mantle of chairman on to Robin Stanton-Gleaves, Jeremy added, “I couldn’t be handing the chairmanship to a more suitable person. He’s been my business partner for four years now and loves this club. He has the drive to push it to the next level in a business-like manner.”

Jeremy takes up his new role of Director of Football with immediate effect and in addition to overseeing football affairs will also remain the main commercial lead for the Club as he continues to foster and develop relationships with the Club’s commercial partners and sponsors.

On his new role Jeremy commented, “I’m looking forward to my new role within the Club and it’s one I’ll fully embrace. I will continue to represent our club with the same energy and passion I have had for the past 18 years and will enjoy continuing to work with our proud partners.”

In the coming weeks we’ll hear from Chairman Robin Stanton-Gleaves as he updates us on the work being done at boardroom level and the board’s vision for the future.

We’ll also be catching up with Jeremy for a trip down memory lane on the opening episode of the official podcast ‘Ravens Weekly’, out on Thursday 8th August.
