Everton's Birch quits

Former Ernst & Young partner and turnaround specialist Trevor Birch has stunned Everton Football Club by announcing his resignation after just six weeks as its chief executive.

Bold E&Y sought legal advice before taking on Leeds

Birch, who has issued no statement, has also served in the lead roles at both Chelsea and Leeds.

A statement from Everton said: ‘Everton Football Club is disappointed to announce that Trevor Birch has resigned his position as CEO,’ the Club said in a statement.

‘The Club is, however, continuing discussions with Trevor about the possibility of an advisory role going forwards.’

The club has also spent most of the summer under pressure to cash in on England starlet Wayne Rooney, who was one of England’s top performers in Euro 2004.
