Barry Webber is to leave Stevenage.

The club’s chief executive, who joined from West Ham United in 2013, has accepted a job offer from a Premier League club and will be leaving Boro in January.

In a statement on the club website, chairman Phil Wallace said: “Barry came to us from the Premier League two years ago to add CEO experience to his CV and he returns to that competition with our blessing.

“I believe I’ve helped him to understand aspects of running a football club and I’m sure that will stand him in good stead in his new career. We, in turn, have benefited from an increased momentum in our activities, particular in fan engagement, community participation and new fan initiatives.”

Stevenage’s match away to Mansfield Town, originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 1, will now be played on Saturday, January 9 as both teams have a free weekend after being knocked out of the FA Cup.
