ROYSTON Town's new chairman has pledged that he will do "everything he can" to help the club fulfil its ambitions.
Steve Jackson, 49, of London Road, Royston, was unanimously elected at the first meeting of the club's new management committee on Thursday.
Mr Jackson, a company director, has lived in Royston for 20 years, and has been on the Crows' committee for the past six months.
And during his time on the committee, Mr Jackson has played an important role in raising money for the improvement work that has taken place at Garden Walk this summer.

"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.
