Bowden Named Essex Chief
Monday, 4th Feb 2013 13:38
Former Town chief executive Derek Bowden has been appointed to the same role at Essex Cricket. Bowden was at Portman Road from 2002 until 2009, helping to steer the club through the financial difficulties which followed relegation from the Premier League.
Bowden, who more recently has been working as the CEO of the Union of UEA students, said: “I’m really looking forward to joining the team at Essex and working with them to create the success that Essex Cricket deserves.”
Nigel Hilliard, chairman of Essex Cricket, added: “Derek has a wealth of experience in the commercial and sporting world, which will be of great benefit to the club at a time when we are embarking on a major redevelopment of The Essex County Ground. Once completed, the stadium will be a fitting centrepiece to the new City of Chelmsford.”
Elsewhere, ex-Blues striker Chris Kiwomya has been named the caretaker-manager at Notts County in the wake of Keith Curle's sacking.
Kiwomya's one-time team-mate at Portman Road, Lee Norfolk has taken up the same role at Leiston FC after Mark Morsley's resignation on Friday.

Post-Derby Blues by TimS
For the first time for a while, I had the chance to go to last Saturday’s derby. I had been at home for the week and it would have been natural to head to Portman Road for a fixture that has given so many memories down the years. I did not go. I could not quite bring myself to buy the ticket, and I felt awful. Things had changed.
Mick Not the Man for Town by BossMan
After the lacklustre performance against the Budgies there seems to be an increase in dissenting voices complaining about the style of football being produced by Town under Mick McCarthy.
Our Current Crop of Forwards by luke_38
Much has been discussed regarding the purchase of a new midfield maestro - but as well as that, we do lack strength in depth when it comes to our forwards.
Here's Where Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
In my previous effort I asked the question of Mick's plans for this season, and what they might do for Town's top flight aspirations.
Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
