Newcastle legend Bobby Moncur has left his role as board member after being appointed back in 2015; along with Steve McClaren, Lee Charnley, and Graham Carr. Between the four of those, only Lee Charnley remains.

Moncur captained the Magpies back in the 1960s where he made almost 300 appearances for the club. On top of that, he would also make appearances for the Scottish national team

The Chronicle reports that Moncur will still be active with the club and that his position as ambassador still remains. Newcastle will still be seeing him at matches and should still expect him to be a figure within the community.

What this might mean for the Magpies is that Rafa Benitez will be working more closely with Charnley and Ashley in regards to team decisions. Obviously this is good news, but it really isn’t much of a surprise. Moncur’s role seemed to be fairly limited and his absence from the board going forward will probably have close to no impact on the club operationally.
