Today, VP Sports Development candidate Adam Proudley dropped out of the race to become a Sabbatical Officer.

In a statement to the Wessex Scene, he said:

… it was a tough decision to make but there are other things I need to focus on right now and I wish Katie all the best.

His withdrawal means only one candidate, Katie Lightowler, remains in the race for VP Sports Development. Meanwhile, he is now the¬†third Sabbatical candidate to quit this year’s elections. The news also comes after two presidential runners, Dan Branch and Rob Hayes, dropped out while Thomas Rogers, a previous ‘joke’ candidate, decided to become a serious contender against Oli Coles for the position of VP Student Communities.
