Werhun Set to Join Ashton at Town
Monday, 19th Apr 2021 14:03

Bristol City’s head of operations/club secretary Luke Werhun is reportedly set to leave the Robins to move to Town at the end of the season, TWTD having revealed in February that the Blues’ new owners wanted the 37-year-old to join his boss Mark Ashton at Portman Road.

Now, according to the Bristol Post, Werhun will indeed leave Ashton Gate in the summer to follow Ashton to Portman Road.

Last week, it was confirmed that CEO Ashton would leave the Robins on May 31st and start work in the same position at Portman Road the following day.

Werhun previously worked with Ashton and new Town chairman Mike O’Leary at Oxford United.

At Bristol City his role was to liaise with the EFL and other clubs dealing with the paperwork relating to transfer business as well as disciplinary administration.

Town's current club secretary is Stuart Hayton, who joined the Blues in 2017.

How many more jobs for the boys do we need?

BlueNomad added 14:18 - Apr 19
Shropshire - Depends if they are good at their jobs! Maybe the fact that these guys all seem to have worked together before bodes well.

I’d see if more as this Club finally building a much needed infrastructure and off the field tesm. Get that right and everything flows ....

ArnieM added 14:21 - Apr 19
...... interestingly no one has been sacked as yet at the club. Says a lot about our current NON infrastructure doesn’t it

To be followed by Nigel Pearson at the end of the season when the Yanks realise that Wigan kept the organ grinder while we got the monkey. Looks like another Lambert/Culverhouse scenario when the manager has taken the plaudits for the coaches ability

I would expect departures in the summer.

Shropshire- it’s called building a proper senior management structure, not a majority shareholder ( not Chairman,a director or anemployee) micro managing the Club from afar, with a mouthpiece with fancy title in situ, and just two directors who were practically invisible.

If LON was expected to carry out all these duties and still do his own job it was no wonder that the club was coming apart at the seams....

Got to get all the pieces in place throughout the whole structure before the rebuild can start and be done properly. The back room has been a mess since the heady days of Cleggy. Next i believe will be the fitness and medical side which clearly is not working either as witnessed by our ridiculous injury record and the fact the players are just not fit.

Bristol City are set to lose another key figure to Ipswich Town at the end of the campaign, with head of football operations Luke Werhun to join up with CEO Mark Ashton in Suffolk at the end of the season, Bristol Live understands.
The Tractor Boys announced last week that CEO Ashton will join the League One side from June 1, with Ashton to link up with former colleague and business partner Mike O'Leary, someone who he regards as a mentor, at Portman Road.

The appointment of a manager on a longer-term basis is the first priority however, with Pearson's future still to be decided on, as well as the recruitment of Ashton's successor

LEICESTER City manager Nigel Pearson has revealed how close he was to taking up the top job at Ipswich Town.
Pearson claimed he was pipped to the post by Jim Magilton when he applied for the Blues job in 2006.
Pearson said: “I was disappointed at the time, but Jim Magilton was a local hero here so there you go. It’s a lovely club and a lovely part of the world. My wife’s got some family down here and I always enjoy coming here.”

Bristol City haven’t exactly kicked on in recent seasons. If anything they have gone backwards so the jury is still out on these recent appointments.
