The club is pleased to announce the appointment of Colin Docherty as Business Development Manager.

Colin was previously at the club between 2015 and 2016 as he helped it develop in its early days at Mariners Park after returning from Peterlee.

He will now work with the commercial team in helping to drive the Mariners forward, assisting with sponsorship, events and marketing.

Club Chairman Geoff Thompson said: “We’re delighted to welcome Colin back to the club.

“He is someone who knows the club well, knows the people here and is passionate about our club.

“He is very clear on what needs to be achieved off the pitch but I’m fully confident in his ability to work with the commercial team in developing us positively off the pitch as we seek to grow and achieve our ambitions.”

Colin said: “When the opportunity of returning to the club was discussed with Geoff, it was too good to turn down.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time here previously and I’m looking forward to helping push the club further forward.

“I have some great memories of my first spell here and I’m hoping there will be plenty more on the way.

“It’s inspiring to see how much the club has grown since I was here and I’m confident there is plenty more growth to come.

“I’m looking forward to connecting with our supporters and existing sponsors once again, and I am also in the process of reaching out to prospective new sponsors as we aim to drive the club forward together.”
