MARCH 2018 UPDATE

- SFA Club Licensing Criteria
Considerable work has been undertaken in this area in recent weeks, in preparation for the SFA audit next month.

- Medical Team
The club has achieved silver status within this criteria and this represents the playing squad having access to enhanced medical support not only on matchdays but also during the week.

- Children and Wellbeing Requirements
With the club having a small number of under-18 players, this requirement was traditionally less taxing for the club but this year there has been an enhanced enforcement of this by the SFA and SPFL and the club has put in place the necessary policies and procedures. For the club this has also been the joining of Disclosure Scotland, the establishment of specific roles e.g. Lead and Authorised signatories and a Child and wellbeing Officer. A series of regular Children Network meetings are also a requirement.

- Stadium
Various meetings have also been held in regard to ensuring that Broadwood retains its bronze criteria. This includes maintenance and upgrading of the floodlighting system and the playing surface.

- Stadium Development
Significant time and work has been spent on the refurbishment of the new Bar 58 area and the establishment of the Arria Lounge, which will be launched at the Awards night on the 14th April. This facility will provide the club not only with an enhanced space to host hospitality but also the potential to earn regular income on non matchdays, as the spaces hosts private functions and conferences.

- Kit Supplier
Meetings have been held to identify a new kit supplier for the 2018-19 season and this will be announced when a deal is completed with the preferred provider.

- New Season Preparations
Work ongoing to identify shirt sponsors for all three of the new playing kits. Discussions are about to conclude on 'walk up' and season ticket pricing for 2018-19.

- Playing Squad
Ongoing meetings are being held as the club prepares for the 2018-19 season. This has been wide ranging from discussing playing budget, pre-season preparations, training lets and of course meetings with the manager as he considers the playing squad.

- Awards Night and Legends Lunch
A series of meetings have been held to prepare for both events and to work to ensure that these are memorable occasions for supporters.
