Magpies to retain faith with NPL team
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.
