WHUISA vice chair stands down

Terry Land, the vice chair of West Ham United Independent Supporter Association has resigned from his post - just three months after taking on the role.

Hopes were high that the appointment of the former journalist back in June would improve WHUISA's capacity to effectively represent supporters, following months of in-house arguing that left the group essentially directionless under former Chairman Lew Ozarow.

But little more than three months after he accepted the position Land has stood down, after becoming disenchanted with the group's perceived lack of direction.

"Over a week since the event and as the remaining committee members haven't yet done so, it is with regret I announce my resignation as Vice Chair of WHUISA," he said via twitter.

"I remain proud of the work I did with the group."

The ISA, which is currently chaired by lifelong supporter Sue Watson has been beset by problems for some considerable time.

Relaunched most recent during the summer, the group claimed to possess "a good balance of youthful zeal and strong experience with a welcome 50/50 split along gender lines".

KUMB understands that at least one more senior member of the committee has followed Land's example by similarly resigning, although as with the vice chair's departure this is yet to be confirmed by WHUISA.

Quite where the troubled organisation goes from here remains to be seen.
