Bath City seeking volunteers after MD Williams announces retirement
Paul Williams has confirmed he will be retiring from his role as Bath City managing director in the new year.
Williams has been a board member at the Blue Square Bet South club for 11 years, working in a full-time capacity for seven of them.
"I remember when my predecessor left I thought I'd be doing this role for a couple of years, having retired from my job as an accountant," Williams told www.bathcityfc.com.
"I can't believe how long I have been here and look forward very much to being able to spend a bit more time to myself.

"I certainly intend to stay connected to the club, and will offer my services where possible on a voluntary basis, but think it is time I enjoyed my retirement.
"I've met some wonderful people and will have some very fond memories to take with me."
City chairman Manda Rigby added: "Paul has talked to me about his wish to retire for a while and he totally deserves a rest after the hours and commitment he has put into the club.
"He is literally irreplaceable, so we aren't even going to try. Instead, we are looking for people to take on various parts of his role, with Paul's support.
"Where possible, we want these roles to be voluntary in order to cut back expenditure further.
"On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Paul profusely for all his work, wish him well in his retirement and hope he can enjoy his football at Bath City, free from the responsibilities he has taken on for so long."
Williams will continue working full-time until the end of January, then do part-time hours during early February before stepping down from his managing director role.
