NewCEO Brian Facer starts next Monday according to this, pinched from the Saints Facebook site a few weeks ago so maybe things will move forward

ďToday the sun sets on my career at Northampton Saints. During my 12 years at Franklin's Gardens I have been involved in survival, relegation, the elation of winning and the deep sorrow of loss! I have had the pleasure of meeting lots of wonderful people and handful of "challenging" characters. Together we have built things, knocked things down and then helped to create new things. The club, its staff, stakeholders and supporters have helped me through some dark days in my life and have made me the person I am today. It has enabled me to provide for my family both financially and emotionally, it is true to say it has been more than "just" a job, I will never forget my time there. I feel honoured, to have been a tiny part of its history and I would like to thank everybody involved for making it an amazing journey. I would especially like to thank the Barwell family who have made it possible for a working class boy to have experienced so much. Northampton Saints is truly a special Club owned by a special family and Northampton ďtaneĒ should be very grateful and proud of them.

As the sunsets on one career, so a new dawn rises on another. On Monday, October 16 I will become the chief Executive Officer of London Irish. A club steeped in proud history with a devoted staff and a supportive fan base. My job is to take what I have learned, apply it and help the Exiles become one of the greatest clubs in Europe. It is a challenge that scares me and excites me in equal measures and an opportunity that I cannot wait to get stuck into. I am looking forward to serving this great club and doing justice to its heritage, whilst creating a lot of special moments along the way.

I feel privileged and blessed to have been given these opportunities, but itís gratifying to know that hard work and dedication can pay off in spades. All of this is underpinned by a loving and supportive family headed by my very tolerant and loving wife Nicola Facer.Ē
