SHEFFIELD Wednesday chariman and director Dave Allen said a breach of confidentiality was "the straw that broke the camel's back" which forced him to resign. Allen joined the board at Hillsborough in 2000 and became chairman in 2003. In recent years though, he has made it known that he would sell his part of the club for the right price and clashed with the shareholding fans group Wednesdayite for holding up possible takeovers. He released a statement saying: "After much thought and careful consideration, I have decided to resign my position of chairman and director of SWFC. "This has not been an easy decision. It has always been my passionate desire to see the club back in the Premier Division. "However, recent events have really sickened me and the 'final straw that has broken the camel's back' is to realise that confidential boardroom matters have been discussed with outside parties. "It is just totally unacceptable. Whilst I could deal with the matter at Board level I have decided that enough is enough. To run any business successfully you must have confidentiality in the boardroom and trust in your fellow directors. "I would like to take this opportunity to wish the club well and hope that you are able to find an outside party who is prepared to invest 'mega bucks' into the business. Believe me that is just one of the things it needs. "Finally I have to say that it is a sad day for me. As Chairman of the club I have put a lot of time, effort and money into getting the business right on track and I believe that I have achieved that goal. "Therefore, I am sorry to be leaving but I just cannot come to terms with some of the unprofessional behaviour surrounding the business." A statement on the official club website read: "The board would like to place on record their appreciation of Mr Allen's contribution during his chairmanship."
