Stunned by the sit­u­a­tion

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Advertiser @ View -

Dear Ed­i­tor I went along to the Air­drieo­ni­ans fans meet­ing held last week af­ter read­ing last week’s front-page story [Ad­ver­tiser, July 5].

I’m stunned with the sit­u­a­tion we are in as a club and I just don’t know where we go from here.

For a start, Tom Wother­spoon should have been there to ex­plain him­self and ex­plain why he is pulling out to the point that we were “tech­ni­cally in­sol­vent ”and fac­ing liq­ui­da­tion.

The Bal­lan­tynes did turn up, but to be hon­est I left with more ques­tions than an­swers; on top of ques­tions be­ing asked which were not an­swered.

I was also sur­prised to hear them hav­ing a go at the Ad­ver­tiser and Jim later telling the room that Air­drie fans are a hard crowd to play in front of!

What a cheek given the fact that the club will need the money and sup­port of fans now more than ever.

Ev­ery­one ex­pects this sea­son to be hard on the pitch with a team of young kids, but I re­ally fear for the club off it. Name and ad­dress sup­plied

Hap­pier times For Wother­spoon and Bal­lan­tyne
