Bull set to join U’s board

COLCHESTER United are set to have a new man on their Board of Directors next season.

U’s owner and chairman Robbie Cowling has invited Kevin Bull to join him in the higher echelons of the club.

Having previously worked for British Gas, Bull – who will join the club subject to Football League ratification – set up Blue Flame Services with fellow Director Tony Schatten in 1987 and remains involved with the day-to-day running of all aspects of the business.

He said: “I am really looking forward to combining my enjoyment of watching football with my interest in business development and spending more time with someone who has been a trusted friend for over 40 years.

“I can only see positive times ahead for Colchester United whilst someone of the calibre of Robbie Cowling is at the helm and when he asked me if I was interested in becoming involved, it was an easy decision.”

Cowling said: “Kevin is a very good friend of mine and we go back a very long way.

“Like myself and my brothers Richard and John, who make up the rest of the Colchester United board, Kevin is a self made man who is passionate about football and passionate about business.
