The appointment comes as a judge prepares to rule if Kevin McCabe or his fellow co-owner HRH Prince Abdullah bin Musa'ad bin Abdulaziz Al Saud controls the newly promoted Premier League club. The two men, who both hold 50 per cent stakes in BLL, launched rival takeover bids at the beginning of last year when their business relationship collapsed and recently faced each other at the High Court in London.

McCabe, his eldest son Scott, John Burnley and Jeremy Tutton are also BLL directors, together with Jan Van Winckel, Joseph Giansiracusa and Prince Abdullah himself.
