The newly-promoted Barclays Premier League club announced on Wednesday afternoon that the 43-year-old had stepped down but will remain as acting chief executive until the end of the season or new appointment is made. During this time, Oyston will continue to work with manager Ian Holloway on the recruitment of players and on the Bloomfield Road stadium redevelopment project.
