Chris Gets On Board

Thursday, 5th February 2009
Clyde fan, Chris Ormerod has been co-opted to join the board of the Clyde Supporters’ Trust.

Chris brings with him a wealth of experience. He is a chartered accountant and has 40 years experience in retail. Chris is currently President of the Board of Airdrie Savings Bank as well as holding directorships in North Lanarkshire’s Town centre initiative and North Lanarkshire CCTV Ltd.

Chris, who lives locally in Cumbernauld, has supported the club for many years and was happy to volunteer for the Trust as he begins his retirement.

It certainly seems that Chris’s doesn’t view retirement as a time of quiet reflection but one of pursuing a number of interests, as he can now choose how he wants to spend his time.

As a Trust board we are delighted that Chris is keen to use his skills in any way required for the benefit of the Trust and Clyde FC and we are delighted to welcome him aboard.

February Update

Sunday, 1st February 2009

***Celebrity Sports Dinner***
***Saturday 21st March 2009***
***Marriot Hotel, Argyle St.***

Yes, it’s that time of year again for your Trust’s biggest fundraising event.
Our Celebrity Sports Dinner has been successful for a number of years and this year we hope to make it bigger and better than ever before.
Dougie Donnelly will be your host and guest speakers Willie Young and Joe Camay providing the laughs.
Member Early Bird discount price of £39.50 per head available for applications received before 6 embers.
This represents great value for a full night of entertainment starting at 6.30 with a drinks reception.
Of course we’d like you to book a table, but we’re equally pleased to cater for much smaller numbers.
The event is tailored for all Trust members and we hope you will consider joining us again this February. Otherwise prices are £45 for members and £55 for non-members. You won’t be disappointed – just ask anybody who has attended before!

Trust board member, Gordon Thomson, has taken up the role of Trust Representative on the board of Clyde FC.
His remit is to further communication between the Trust and Club boards and the membership in general.
Gordon has forged links with local community organisations to good effect and we’re sure he’ll be a success in his new role as a director of our Club too.

As economic turmoil hits Scottish football and the economy in general, it’s no surprise that we’re not immune to the general malaise.
The Trust, Clyde FC and Clyde Development Consortium are holding meetings with the aim of generating further income for the club. We hope these initiatives will be revealed shortly and will find your approval.
We’re all in this together and by working side-by-side we hope to minimise the effects of the current economic downturn.
Your thoughts and suggestions are welcomed through the normal channels.
