Club Statement: Don Rowing to Retire

3 June 2013

Barnsley Football Club Chief Executive, Don Rowing, is to retire at the end of the month. Don has been at the club for 9 years, initially as General Manager, and more latterly as a Director and Chief Executive.

Don Rowing said, “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Barnsley and will miss working with the staff and my interaction with the fans. I have particularly enjoyed working with Patrick, but as his involvement with the club has gradually diminished and with my recent 70th birthday, I think it’s time to blow the final whistle. I will continue to support the club as a season ticket holder and wish the club and its fans every success.”

Patrick Cryne said, “Don has been the unsung hero at the club. In his position you draw fire for all the poor decisions made within the club, but get little credit for the good work done. His workload has always been phenomenal and yet he has discharged it completely. I regard him as a good friend and wish him a long and fruitful retirement.”
