Sir David Richards and Peter Ebdon will resign from the board of the WPBSA as a result of an EGM held today to reduce the number of directors from seven to five.
This will apply for two years and is basically a measure to save money.
The WPBSA is seriously hard up. They recently told staff they would have to take a 10% pay cut and made four employees redundant.
The EGM attracted only 18 votes from an eligible constituency of more than 70, although attention may have been diverted by some tournament that's going on in Sheffield.
