Hello and welcome to today’s match against Maidstone United, the first of which I am extremely pleased to be in attendance for as Chairman of this wonderful Football Club.
As you know one of the key aims of our consortium is to improve the Club’s engagement with fans. We have a lot of ground to cover and subjects include the academy, the women’s team, the stadium and many more topics. One subject that we cannot cover is the terms of our purchase of the Club. In the meantime, I want to thank Marshall Taylor and Martin Ling for all the hard work in achieving so much in such a short time.
Today I would like to cover our circa 10 per cent minority shareholders. As you are aware, our consortium (Eagle Investments 2017 Limited) have recently bought a circa 90 per cent majority shareholding in the Club. I happen to be one of these 10 per cent shareholders having been granted 1,000 shares by my father many years ago.
I understand that we have circa 625 minority shareholders and I am grateful to them all for their continued support over the years. I cannot apologise enough if you have been ignored in the past but moving forward our plan will be as follow:
Please do email [email protected] with a copy of your shareholder’s certificate and your up to date contact details so we can ensure nobody is missed from our mailing list. If there is anything else, you think we can do to make you and the rest of the shareholders feel more valued please do let us know.
I look forward to meeting you all at Brisbane Road this season.
Up the O’s.
