SAVE FORT WIL­LIAM FOOT­BALL CLUB

Due to the pos­si­ble im­mi­nent re­ti­ral of some of the board/com­mit­tee, FWFC ur­gently re­quires vol­un­teers to as­sist in the run­ning of the club

The Oban Times - - Feature -

With­out such as­sis­tance the fu­ture of the club and par­tic­u­larly its par­tic­i­pa­tion in the High­land League will al­most cer­tainly be in jeop­ardy. Fi­nan­cial sup­port it also re­quired.

Please come along to a pub­lic meet­ing at The So­cial Club, Clag­gan Park on Mon­day April 24, at 7pm.

One di­rec­tor from Fort Wil­liam Foot­ball Club, Ron­nie Maclean, said: ‘ As we ap­proach the end of an­other foot­ball sea­son it is very clear that we ur­gently need peo­ple to come for­ward to as­sist with the nu­mer­ous tasks that are nec­es­sary to run a High­land League foot­ball Club.

‘Young or old, male or fe­male, there are jobs for ev­ery­one and all will be made very wel­come.

‘We are also los­ing our man­ager and as­sis­tant, so now is per­haps the op­por­tu­nity for a lo­cal group to come for­ward as our new coach­ing team. Again, this is re­ally ur­gent to en­sure club li­cens­ing for the next sea­son.

‘We are the only High­land League team in the west of Scot­land and that is some­thing we should all be proud of.

‘I can­not over em­pha­sise the im­pli­ca­tions at all lev­els of FWFC not be­ing in the High­land League – our youth teams would not be able to com­pete in North of Scot­land games if they are not af­fil­i­ated to a reg­is­tered club.

‘Please make the ef­fort to come to the meet­ing on Mon­day to hear first hand what is needed to keep FWFC go­ing.

‘If you can­not make the meet­ing but would like to help, please con­tact our club sec­re­tary Marie on 07803 049571 or any com­mit­tee mem­ber be­fore the meet­ing.’
