As the new board of Winsford United we thought it would be prudent to recap on an eventful night and also thank a few people who helped along the way,
Can I first thank Dave Taylor for helping to chair the meeting and keeping the meeting as amicable as it was, I understand that at some points the discussions became heated but with such an emotional subject this was always a possibility. I thought the meeting was extremely structured and provided everyone the opportunity and correct platform to air any concerns/views.
Secondly I would like to thank Mark Loveless for his contribution and his professionalism throughout, Mark is aware that we made at least two advances with regards to having a meeting beforehand and trying to reach a solution that would be both productive and achievable for all concerned, however for whatever his reason Mark decided he wanted the process to run its course and a vote to take place, this was his decision and also his right and we respect that. If Mark would have met with us we would have asked Mark if he would stay involved in a ‘football president’ role and after discussions between the board last night after the meeting, we would like to leave this offer on the table as an open invitation for Mark to take us up on if he ever chooses to do so.
We would like to also thank all the people that came along giving up their time to show their support, we are now committed to move the club forward and to do this with as many people involved as possible, this is a community club and bringing the community back in to the fold is the overall goal.
To keep everyone updated I can confirm that after an agreement last night we will be having a board meeting in this coming week where we will hopefully add 2 or 3 more additions to the existing board, we will also be making an announcement on who will be our next chairman in the next couple of weeks.
Thanks again for all your continued support.
Winsford United Board of Directors
