Trust call for fan meet­ing with board

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - Sport Round-up -

The Air­drieo­ni­ans Sup­port­ers’ Trust have called for an open meet­ing be­tween the fans and di­rec­tors at the club.

The group of Di­a­monds diehards urged the club hi­er­ar­chy for“clar­i­fi­ca­tion”af­ter a string of de­par­tures in the board­room.

Last month saw chair­man Bobby Wat­son step down to spend more time with his fam­ily. He was then fol­lowed by Stu­art Shields, who had acted as a spokesper­son dur­ing the takeover. Gavin and Wal­ter Speirs also left roles at the club last year.

In a state­ment re­leased by the Trust, mem­bers stated that the se­ries of high-pro­file ex­its had caused some fans“un­ease”.

It read:“Fol­low­ing a num­ber of de­par­tures from the Air­drieo­ni­ans FC board­room and a cer­tain amount of un­ease amongst some fans we feel it nec­es­sary to ad­dress this sit­u­a­tion, and we will seek clar­i­fi­ca­tion from the board.

“Given the make up of the clubs board­room af­ter the con­sor­tium takeover, there was al­ways the chance of changes be­ing made to the set up over time. The Trust like other fans also shares a con­cern at the num­ber of re­cent de­par­tures, we will how­ever con­tinue to do ev­ery­thing in our ca­pa­bil­i­ties to work with those run­ning the club to en­sure things are be­ing done for the best for our club and its fans. We are re­quest­ing an open meet­ing with the board and the fans.”
