Mag­pies to re­tain faith with NPL team

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

SOC­CER: Claims of Mag­pies Sport­ing Club vot­ing to sep­a­rate from Mag­pies Cru­saders United have been de­nied by Mag­pies gen­eral man­ager Lee Sk­er­man.

Sk­er­man said a mo­tion from the floor from a life mem­ber for the NPL to be “wound up” by the 2019 sea­son was put for­ward, but quickly de­nied by the board.

“Mag­pies Sport­ing Club is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing all pos­si­ble re­sources to en­sure the suc­cess of Mag­pies Cru­saders United over the course of it’s five-year li­cence to com­pete in the statewide Na­tional Pre­mier League,” Sk­er­man said.

“The mo­tion put for­ward from the floor at the Mag­pies Sport­ing Club AGM in con­flict to this state­ment is not per­mit­ted by the Mag­pies Sport­ing Club con­sti­tu­tion, and does not stand.”

He said the club board made no de­ci­sion to with­draw it’s sup­port of the NPL be­fore the end of the li­cence in 2022.

“Mag­pies Sport­ing Club will be work­ing with the mem­ber­ship to en­sure that there is a more trans­par­ent model of the busi­ness in the fu­ture,” he said.
