|Sir Norman Wrassle|
Both Mr Eldridge and TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle were absent from yesterday’s press conference at The Sandgate Hotel Blackpool where it was announced that the TMB will be sponsoring Blackpool South FC for the 2013/14 season.
Mr Eldridge, who only took up the post of chief executive officer yesterday, was unavailable for comment. An announcement will be made regarding his successor shortly.
Sir Norman denied reports in the press that there had been a scuffle outside the hotel. "Brian decided the job wasn't for him and we didn't want to stand in his way. We wish him all the best for the future."
