Russell Brown joins the AAFC Board
We are delighted to announce that former MP and local councillor Russell Brown has accepted a proposal to be co-opted onto the interim Board of Annan Athletic FC.
Russell lives locally in the town and is a volunteer and coach within our Community Football at Galabank as well as a regular participant at our walking football on a Wednesday afternoon.
Whilst serving as a councillor Russell was elected as the Member of Parliament for Dumfries Constituency and in 2005, as a result of boundary changes he was elected as the Member for Dumfries & Galloway. During his time in Parliament he was the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Leader of the House of Lords, and various Secretaries of State for Scotland, as well as the Secretary of State for International Development. Between 2010 and 2015 he served as the Shadow Defence Minister with responsibility for International Security Strategy, and also the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the Scotland Office.
Russell will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience from his former life as an MP and this will be invaluable to the club as move forward and makes the transition to a community benefit society.
