Geller is famous for his ability with silverware
Uri Geller is the new joint chairman of Third Division side Exeter City, reports BBC Radio Devon.
The world famous psychic will work alongside ex-Swansea chairman Mike Lewis and the former Scarborough supremo John Russell.
The trio will take over from chairman Ivor Doble, who outlined his determination to sell his controlling interest in the club last month.
The 55-year old, best known for his spoon-bending exploits, will be at St James Park on Friday with his son Daniel, who will be unveiled as co-vice-chairman.
Geller said his role would be as a figurehead for the club who will provide inspiration for players and fans.
“I will bring a positive aura,” he said.
“I will be meeting the fans, inspiring them, telling them how to support the club with their mind, body and spirit.”
He added that he was not concerned that his reputation as a psychic might be damaged if the club’s fortunes do not improve.
“I’m a very positive and optimistic person,” he said.
“If I can drive my feelings to the fans then only good things can happen.
“I’m not a miracle worker but I will be totally devoted.”

“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”

“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”

“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
