Former Burnley chairman Mike Garlick has become the new owner of St Joseph’s Football Club.
The Gibraltar based side have announced that Garlick will also take on the role as chairman with the club. He joined the board at Turf Moor in 2006 and moved into his higher role in 2012, with him a pivotal figure behind the scenes, during the successful Sean Dyche era at his hometown club.
Garlick, Burnley born and a Clarets supporter, stepped aside in 2020 to allow ALK Capital and Alan Pace to complete their takeover of the Lancashire club. He sold his majority stake and has been exploring his options over the last few months.
Garlick will arrive at St Joseph’s – a club who will play in the fist qualifying round of the Europa Conference League next month – with a strong reputation. He ran Burnley sensibly and ensured they competed in the Premier League for several years, while never worrying about financial troubles.
On the purchase of St Joseph’s, a club founded in 1912, he said: “It’s an absolute honor and privilege to takeover a club like St Joseph’s which is steeped in history and tradition. We want to build on the excellent work carried out by former owner Stuart Rodriguez over the last seven years and are confident that we can keep the club moving forward both on and off the pitch and bring more success to this great club. “
