Keith Dawe has decided to step down as club chairman at Bristol City. Dawe first invested in the club in 1996, at the same time as owner Steve Lansdown, and has been chairman of the Robins since May 2012.

Since Dawe took the reins of the club, they have won a thrilling double in the 2014/15 season with a League One title just as they lifted the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

“It has been a privilege and an honour to be involved with Bristol City,” said Dawe in a club statement.
