Intriguing point from Board meeting notes

Postby Kairdiff Exile » November 4th, 2019, 11:12 am

Very last point under Any Other Business:

Chairman’s Box: KW raised the issue of a seating plan for home matches and the view that directors should not stand to watch games. This was agreed.

I’d be fascinated to hear from one of our Directors about the rationale behind this. Personally, I have a lot more respect for a director who stands alongside the “normal” supporters rather than scurrying off to the Chairman’s box.

Anyone from the Board care to elucidate?

Another point I found hard to understand that a temporary academy manager has been appointed and his priority is to be FINANCE!!!

Not bringing along the potential of current players.

It appears that once again we have no Retail Manager and no General manager either

"WELCOME: On behalf of the Board, GF welcomed KA and PM to the meeting following the recent election. Both had now successfully completed the Owners and Directors Test to be confirmed as directors of the club."

Who are Kelly Anderson (KA) and Paul Marks (PM) ?

Perhaps its more to do with standing in the Directors Box/area, contravening the (pathetic) ground regulations?

Isn't that because it's a new post?

It's the finance of the academy. Lots of kids not up to date on subs if I'm reading the emails I've been getting correctly.

With all due respect to the club, they definitely view the academy as a money making exercise rather than a footballing one. That's not necessarily a dig at them, but it's 100% the case.
