Jack Petchey resigned as chairman of Watford Football Club, whilst retaining his shareholding.

In explanation, he said "the club faces arguably the most important ten games in its history as it attempts to steer clear of relegation. I want to ensure the fans' focus is on supporting Glenn Roeder and his team during the period ahead".

Professor Stuart Timperley was appointed as chairman five days later.
