"We have upgraded the floodlights, we have improved the changing rooms, and the pitch has been overhauled.
"We have got a facility there now which is much more deserving of the club."
Mr Jackson says that as well as trying to secure more sponsorship for the club, he will be supporting the manager and players in whatever way he can.
"It is my aim to continue the good work undertaken throughout the close season to make a club that the players, officials, and people of Royston will be proud of," he said.
"We have a manager and squad of players that have the ability of competing at a much higher level, and I will do everything I possibly can to help them achieve that."
Club president Alan Barlow said: "We are absolutely delighted that Steve has taken on the chairman's role, and I feel totally confident he will steer us in the right direction at what is a very exciting time both on and off the pitch.
