United chairman to step down
Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson is stepping down from the role at the end of the season.
That will bring to a close almost a decade of service having succeeded late father Eddie at Tannadice following his death in October 2008.
"It has been a real honour to serve Dundee United," Thompson told United's official website. "I have always tried to achieve the best for the Club and there have been many, many happy occasions of which I am very proud. The Scottish Cup win in 2010 was a high point in my and many other United fans lives.
"The most important factor right now is that Dundee United focus on winning games and securing a place back in the Premiership - without distraction about my position.'"
