There have been developments in the club board over the previous week to bring to the attention of the support. Firstly, Paul Pettigrew, who had been the Lead Director for Relocation has stepped down from the board. Paul’s last task in this role had been to draft the initial proposal which formalises our interest in Crownpoint, as announced yesterday, and the club is indebted to him for the commitment he has given to the task of securing a new site over the past year.
Applications are also being sought to fill the role of Finance Director on a permanent basis. John Alexander stepped into this role strictly on an interim basis in April of this year, and subsequently took on the post of chair of the Clyde FC Community Foundation – which is the named applicant on the proposal for Crownpoint. The task of identifying a permanent Finance Director has now been initiated. We would encourage anyone who may have seen the role description and is mulling it over to contact Gordon Thomson if they would benefit from a conversation on what it entails.
Reflecting on the developments, Club Chairman Gordon Thomson commented:-
“These are demanding times, and the Board will continue to evolve to meet the increasing challenges of each stage in the relocation project. The ultimate goal is clear – we must drive resolutely towards securing our longer term future whilst supporting the ongoing work of supporting Danny and the first team squad. It is critical for the whole club, both the Community Foundation and the Football Club to move forward together, to achieve our objective of returning home to the east end of Glasgow.”
