The former chairman of Newcastle Falcons has rejoined the club as a member of its board of directors reports the Newcastle Chronicle.

Dave Thompson ran the rugby union club for 13 years as chairman, before handing over the reins to current boss Semore Kurdi in 2011.

Mr Thompson, who made his millions in the IT sector, bought the Falcons from then Newcastle United owners Freddy Shepherd and Sir John Hall when the pair began splitting up a consortium of sports clubs that included the Eagles basketball team and the now defunct Cobras ice hockey club.

Since stepping down as chairman seven years ago, Mr Thompson has remained close to the Falcons’ management team, providing advice and guidance over the years.

He has now officially been brought back into the fold after accepting a director position at the club.

Newcastle Falcons chairman Semore Kurdi said: “Dave Thompson has years of experience both in rugby and in business. He has a lot of time on his hands at the moment so it seemed like the right time to formalise that relationship.”
