Everton FC have announced that their chief executive Robert Elstone has left the Premier League club to run Super League. There has yet to be an official announcement from the RFL yet it is understood he will start the new job on June 1st.

Elstone, a Castleford Tigers fan and previously assistant to RFL chief Maurice Lindsay, has spent 13 years at Everton.

Everton’s chairman Bill Kenwright said: “Robert has obviously been a passionate Evertonian since the day he first set foot here, but I have always known that his enduring love has been rugby league. And we wish him well in his new role leading his favourite sport.”

Elstone has worked in sports administration for two decades. A trained accountant, he has had two spells at Deloitte where he advised sports’ governing bodies and clubs. He also worked for BSkyB as a director of football business affairs.

Elstone said: “I have enjoyed 13 wonderful years here and feel privileged to have been able to play a significant role in the development of such a great club.

“I have always said I am proud to have been given such an important custodial role and I leave a club with a very clear sense of purpose and identity; one that places its fans ‘front and centre’ in all its decisions.”
