The only show in town.

Postby Stan A. Einstein » July 2nd, 2018, 11:57 am

Let's draw a line. Lunchtime 2nd July 2018.
-------------- :grin: little joke there. But from now on a really serious post.

Unless the directors of Newport County have completely lost their senses they must realize that there is only one option.

They enter talks with Newport City Council with one goal in mind. The only way to save our club is for Newport City Council to buy Rodney Parade. Having done so they let the stadium to both Newport County and the premier rugby team in the town.

I suspect that this has already begun. I would hope so. It is my view that the Council will need to be lobbied as to why such an action and expenditure will be good for the followers of both codes and generally for the good folk of our beloved Newport.

To lobby effectively we all need to be involved. Letters to councillors, the press, a media campaign. Full on 100% commitment. It really is now or never. I am tired of being embarrassed by my town. Tired of listening to the same old voices telling us why we can't go forward. I truly believe that there is now our best chance of creating for ourselves a better future. However I also believe that this might also be our last chance.

Time for Newport County AFC to come out and say what needs to be done and to embrace the supporters and ask us to be involved. Please don't use that old cliche of this being a delicate situation. After 30 years time for us all to show a bit of cohones.

The council buy a stadium and rent it out to us?.... We don't have the best of track records with Newport Council do we:

Your logic is correct. However you have missed the obvious point.

Being able to deny planning permission is not just any card, it is the ace of trumps.

Could they deny planning permission just to be awkward?.. wouldn't they need to demonstrate sound reason for denying any application?

Are the minutes of the June board meeting available yet?

EDITED: The May minutes say the next Board meeting is July 5th - is that a typo, or did the Board not meet in June?

Newport City Council had nothing whatsoever to do with the sale of RP. Existing Directors of Newport RFC were willing to sell only to the WRU as a means of retaining professional rugby in Newport.

I hope you don't mind but what does the following mean "contracts for GDPR and Safeguarding compliance."?

No problem at all.

An IT company has been subcontracted to ensure that we remain GDPR compliant at all times with all our data that is stored

The EFL requires a Safeguarding audit across the club including the Academy, CitC, volunteers etc. As you can imagine with recent events they need to ensure that anyone vulnerable is looked after correctly and that the club has processes etc in place to deal with any potential issues.

I don't see any difference between "there's only one show in town" and "unless they have taken leave of their senses, there's only one option". [Edit to add: In other words, if lobbying for a council-safeguarded stake in RP is essential, by the same token so must staying there be.]

I would have thought lobbying the council to buy at least a stake being the best outcome is so obvious it barely needs stating.

But absolutely crucial to keep details under very close wraps and most particularly out of the hands of anyone who has demonstrated they can't keep confidences from within the club.
