Dutton had sponsored the club, and then became a member of the board two years ago.

Rochdale released a statement on behalf of the four remaining board members, it read:

“We are sad to see Peter and Ray step down, they have both had the respect, support and confidence of this board during their time at the club.

“Both have made significant contributions to Rochdale Hornets including securing support from the local authorities that they both have strong connections with.

“Peter’s association with the club spans several decades, moving from the field to the boardroom. We wish both of them every success and hope to see them regularly at matches in the future.

“They have stepped aside to allow the board to find a new focus and attract new investment to take the club forward in the future. The board will meet this week to discuss options to strengthen its skills set moving forward.”
