The decision to change the name was taken at an EGM held in the pavilion with a revamped committee headed by new chairman Brendan Hetherington also appointed.

The club are looking to bounce back from a difficult year on and off the field with club officials hoping the new-look hierarchy will allow players to concentrate on playing rather than administration.
