Sheffield appoint chairman

Sheffield Eagles have appointed appointed Chris Noble MBE chairman of the club with immediate effect.

Noble takes over from the post vacated by Ian Swire who retired from his position in October 2016 after 16 years in post. 

Noble has been a director of the Sheffield Eagles for 18 years since the club re-formed in 1999.

He said: “I am proud to be appointed Chairman of Sheffield Eagles, it’s an honour to represent this great rugby league club.”

“We had a difficult year in 2016 and we are disappointed to move out the city this season for our home games but our aim now is to bring the club back to stability ahead of our proposed move to the Olympic Legacy Park, Sheffield in 2018.

“Talks are still continuing with the new potential sponsors regarding the new stadium and over the coming weeks we hope to have some positive news to announce.”

“We’d like to thank our supporters, sponsors, players and staff for their continued patience and support.”
