Right To Dream Academy owner, Tom Vernon, has been named as the new chairman of Danish club, Nordsjaelland after leading a group of investors to complete a takeover of the club.
Pathways Group, where Tom Vernon is a director, has reportedly bought 90% stake of Nordsjaelland from previous owner, Allan K. Pedersen to become the new owners in a move which will be made official on January 1, 2016.
The former Manchester United scout Vernon, immediately becomes the new chairman of the club who are making several major changes.
Tom Vernon has been part of the upsurge in Ghana’s young talents out there from his stint which is over a decade. His stay saw him manage teams like Okwahu United, Accra Great Olympics before setting up the successful Right To Dream Academy. The team has already contributed quite a number of players like David Accam, Abdul Majid Warris and Yaw Yeboah, to name but a few.
Allan Pederson therefore hopes Vernon’s solid track record will be replicated at the club which has struggled in recent years to produce top notch talents and remain highly competitive since winning their first league championship in the 2011/12 season.
According to Tom Vernon, he intends to revive Nordsjaelland's culture of bringing through quality players as he has done in Ghana with his Right to Dream Academy.
