Sunderland have announced that Tom Sloanes has resigned from his role on the club’s Board of Directors.
Speaking in an interview with the club’s official website, Sloanes spoke out on his departure, with a new opportunity arising that will take his time away from the Black Cats.
“Sunderland AFC has always played a cherished part in my life and although I am leaving my position, that will never change.
“An exciting opportunity has recently arisen that will require my complete focus, and significant time away on business, and it would be irresponsible of me to continue my role at SAFC if I am unable to meet the demands that come with such a privileged position.”
What was the score when Sunderland last played these 25 teams?
Plenty of the Stadium of Light faithful took to social media to react to Sloanes’ departure, with many of the club’s supporters being pleased to see him move on.
