Blackburn Rovers Chairman John Williams has decided to resign and leave the club.
Williams joined Rovers in 1997 as Chief Executive to begin with. Since 2005, he has held the position of Executive Chairman.
It was reported locally back in December that Williams was thinking of leaving the club, and now that decision has come to fruition.
Williams becomes the second big name to leave Rovers since the sale of the club to Venky's as they look to overhaul the club.
Williams commented: "With our new owners the Venkys Group, I have no doubt this is a new dawn for the Club. 
"There is a new order, a new way of doing things and I believe the time is right for me now to move on.
"I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Club, its owners, management, players, employees and supporters all the very best for the future."
Tom Finn, Blackburn Rovers' Managing Director said: "All of us here at Ewood Park, our owners and I am sure all our fans, would like to this opportunity to thank John for the contribution he has made during his tenure and we send him our best wishes for the future."
