Minutes of meeting between Trust In Yellow representatives and Club board held on Saturday, 28th November, 2009.
Present: Alan Scarisbrick, Bill Sloan, Phil Carder, Martin Robinson, Ben Kelly (Trust in Yellow)
Charlie Clapham, Sam Shrouder, Haydn Preece (Club)
The agenda followed was the one sent by Trust In Yellow to the board. However, at the request of the club, item 7 was dealt with first. The original questions are in italics.
7. Strategic planning
Does the club have a plan for its development in the medium to long term and, in particular, if circumstances arose in which it could no longer depend on the financial support of its present major backers.
For the club Mr Shrouder outlined the Chairman’s role and personal investment in the club over the past years.
There had never been any other offers from people willing to make substantial investments in the club but they would welcome any offers in the future with ‘open arms’. Whilst the club did not have any strategic planning for the future of the club in the event of the Chairman & vice Chairman moving on, however neither had any intention of leaving the club in the near future.
The club would welcome hearing the Trust’s views on strategic plans for the club.
