Peter Thomas will stand down as Cardiff Blues chairman in the New Year after Alun Jones was confirmed as his successor.

During last summer it was revealed that the 75-year-old would hand over the reins of Cardiff Blues following more than 22-years at the helm.

Thomas will remain a director of the company and has been named “Life President”, with Cardiff legal professional Jones becoming the new chairman on January 1.

Thomas said: "The journey over the last 22 years has had its ups and downs but it is one I have been privileged to be part of and thoroughly cherished.

"The events of the last two years have seen us develop Project Reset for the four regions and the WRU and this has created the way forward for the professional game in Wales.

"With this in mind, it was the right time for me to take a step back and a search was undertaken to find a successor.

"A specialist company was engaged to seek suitable candidates and this was narrowed down to a four-person shortlist who were interviewed by a selection panel. The selection panel were in unanimous agreement.

"Alun is a life-long Cardiff and Cardiff Blues supporter, a former Ysgol Glantaf schoolboy, who won a Welsh schools cap.

"He is now managing partner of Hugh James, one of Wales' leading businesses, and is hugely experienced in developing growth strategies and management across numerous levels."
