8th August 2017

New Vice Presidents have been appointed by Sheffield United FC.

The group join current Senior Vice President Graham Moore and Vice Presidents Martin Green, Mike Blundell and Martin Ross. Stepping down are Chris Steer, Andrew Laver, Ian Cameron and John Burnley. The Blades Board of Directors thanked the quartet for their services to the Club. -We are a proud, football-led organisation that rightly classifies itself as a community and family club, said co-owner Kevin McCabe. -The Vice Presidents well-known within the Sheffield City Region community - help maintain the spirit, culture and ethos of a Sheffield institution that has been in existence since the creation of Bramall Lane in 1855. Co-owner HRH Prince Abdullah bin Mosa'ad echoed Mr McCabe's gratitude, noting, -The success of the Blades is the sum of contributions from many, many people both within and outside the Club. The contributions of the Vice Presidents are undoubtedly a key factor in propelling the Club to ever greater heights.

Sheffield-based Glenn Day, aged 61, is married with three children and five grandchildren. With his wife Anita, he ran AG Glass, a successful glass process company based at Tankersley, which became the largest in the UK before being acquired by a Japanese company. Mr Day now has a successful commercial and residential property portfolio. The youngest of the group is estate agent Mark Ross, aged 36. Married with two children, he launched less than five years ago the Redbrik Estate Agency which has residential sales and lettings offices in Chesterfield and at Crystal Peaks, Millhouses and Kelham Island in Sheffield. A lifelong Blade, his company sponsors the Bramall Lane stand. Tajinder Singh, aged 47, is married with two children.
