Boardroom Report 30th January 2014
The board offered Gary and the whole team congratulations on getting to the top of the league although they appreciated there is still a long way to go.
As reported on the official website Jay Fulton has joined Swansea and Mark Beck (Carlisle), Joe Chalmers (Celtic) and Mark Millar have joined on loan until the end of the season. Gregor Amos has continued his loan to Selkirk and Kriss Faulds to Stenhousemuir. A verbal offer was received for Stephen Kingsley from Swansea which the board rejected as this did not match their valuation of the player.
The new Physio equipment has been purchased.
The security on match days together with access and egress at the ground and car parks, as raised by the working party, are being addressed and it is hoped fans will see an improvement.
The SFA have successfully carried out their audit of the club and the results will be known in due course
The shop in the Howgate had been a success in the run-up to Christmas. Sales and marketing are ahead of plan and the themed days at recent matches had been well attended, as has hospitality in general. Pitch hire was also going well and consideration for additional projects for the summer months are being considered.
The Sportsman’s Dinner is to support FFC Academy Players and not FVFA, although the possibility of a separate sponsor for the latter is being investigated.
The Rod Stewart concert is now nearly fully booked with some hospitality still available.
Next meeting on 27th February 2014
