There’s new tonight that John Irving, the Finance Director at Newcastle will leave the club to take up a similar position at Newcastle Airport
John Irving – Director of Football – to leave club
John Irving has been at Newcastle for seven years and has worked for Mike Ashley throughout that time.
John was appointed to his current position in the summer of 2013 following the resignation of Derek Llambias, seemingly in protest of Joe Kinnear being appointed at that time as Director of Football.
The Chronicle is reporting that Irving’s assistant, David Gilroy, is also leaving the club for Manchester City – so Newcastle will need to hire a couple of financial people in the summer.
They are also reporting that John had become frustrated at Newcastle – and we can understand that – unfortunately the club is being completely mismanaged almost at all levels at the moment.
And another embarrassment is that our new strips to be worn on Sunday, have the wrong Wonga logo on them.
That’s as much Wonga’s fault as Newcastle’s.
