One of London Colney’s major shareholders has moved to soothe supporters after he took up the role of chairman at Biggleswade United.
Gareth Davies, who along with manager Ken Charlery part-owns the Cotlandswick-based football club, was announced as the new figurehead at Second Meadow.
But he told the Herts Ad that he was going nowhere as far as the Blueboys were concerned.
He said: “The move to Biggleswade is to help them acquire a new gorund.
“I’m still a major shareholder at London Colney, I’ll still be there during the week, I just want be classed as the chairman.

“You don’t actually need a chairman at this level. This year I have been the secretary, the programme editor, everything.
“Steve Ypey will take over as secretary as he will take on a more active role.

“But we’ve worked so hard to stop the club folding though that we aren’t going anywhere.”
Colney finished their Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division season with a 1-0 home loss to London Tigers on Monday.
It was a tough defeat as they were caught out by a quick counter-attack in the final minutes of the game, Ibrahim Lukulayi getting the goal.
Tigers’ Luciano Martins had been the busier of the two keepers throughout the game, denying Loren Maxwell, Joe Reynolds and Laurence Vaughan among others.
Maxwell seem to have a personal duel with the keeper as he continually bombarded the net.
Kambo Smith also had a couple of chances but it was not to be for the Blueboys who are currently 12th in the table, although they could slip a place should Hoddesdon Town avoid defeat in their final game
The club’s end of season presentations were made following the game with Davies and Charlery handing over a bottle of champagne and wine to some of the club’s hard-working backroom staff, hospitality and commercial manager Kim Grainger, press officer Terry Edwards, physio Lorraine Strudwick and Ypey for his role of fixture secretary.
The playing awards were dominated by Bobby Armstrong who secured both the players’ player and manager’s player of the season.
Smith took the golden boot as the club’s leading goalscorer.
