Sat, 20th Apr 2013 2:10pm

An Extraordinary General Meeting of Clyde FC's owners was held this afternoon at Broadwood, before the club’s match against Montrose. The following resolutions were considered.


 1. To pass the following Resolution 1 as an ordinary resolution of the Company:

"That the board are authorised to enter into on behalf of the company all appropriate legal agreements and make all appropriate arrangements to allow the club to relocate to a location of the board's choice in or around East Kilbride."

Result: YES 285 / NO 21

The resolution was carried as the margin was 93%

2. To pass the following Resolution 2 as a Special Resolution of the Company:

"Subject to the board being satisfied that all appropriate steps have been taken to enable the company to move to premises in or around East Kilbride, that the company's name be changed to EK Clyde Football Club Community Interest Company."

Result: YES 257 / NO 49

The resolution was carried as the margin was 84%

3. To pass the following Resolution 3 as a Direction of the Company:

DIRECTION

The owners hereby give the following Direction (as defined in the company's articles of association) to the directors:

That, once the company’s name is changed to EK Clyde Football Club Community Interest Company, the directors shall use all reasonable endeavours to procure that the company’s trading name and the name under which it is registered with the Scottish Football League, or its successors, shall be EK Clyde Football Club and that this shall not be changed without the prior approval of a special resolution of the owners, except that instead of the usual 75% vote to approve a special resolution, such a change can only be approved at a general meeting by a 90% vote of all the owners entitled to vote on a special resolution and attending the general meeting in person or by proxy. As with a normal special resolution of the company, at least half of the owners entitled to vote on a special resolution must be in attendance at the said general meeting for such a resolution to be approved.

Result: YES 259 / NO 47

The resolution was carried as the margin was 85%


The Board of Directors are delighted by the outcome of the vote this afternoon. We are convinced that relocating to East Kilbride and working with the East Kilbride Community Trust is an excellent opportunity for the club. 

However, we fully recognise the trust placed in the Board by the ownership to deliver the necessary partnership agreement in order for these proposals to become a reality. We will not take this responsibility lightly.

The Board of Directors will shortly announce a general meeting for all supporters, where we will discuss the next steps for Clyde FC.
