Alastair Donald has admitted he had considered stepping down as Forfar chairman because he was becoming tired combining his business and football commitments.
Donald, who took over as supremo at Station Park in 2012, had intended to resign his post after a relentless three years in charge.
However, he changed his mind following approaches from people involved with the club and he is now looking forward to preparing for next season with manager Dick Campbell.
Donald said: “I don’t want to make an overly big thing about this.
“I had been having discussions with the board as I was simply getting tired.
“I have four businesses and I have not had a break from football even during the last three close seasons as we had put in the new pitch, then floodlights and then hospitality.
“So I was really looking to take a break as chairman but then some of the players came to speak to me along with the management and fans.
“It was humbling, to be honest as I never thought I had made that impact.
“I just thought I would resign as chairman and toddle off although I would still be involved with the club.
“However, I have now decided to stay on but I would like to stress this is not a major issue there are lots of good people at the club.
“There are football decisions to be made for next season that are very important.
“We need to get deals done and look forward to what should be a great league next season.”
