    Question: Given the answer to the question about compensation, should fans be worried about the ability of the club to continue trading. Secondly, given that there are many rumours circulating to the effect that neither potential purchasers of the club and/or ground, nor the Brewsters are interested in relocating the club to a new stadium or keeping the club alive can the Brewsters (not the non executive board members) give a categorical assurance that they still intend to keep the club alive after any sale and will not just walk away and let the club die.

    Answer: The compensation issue is of course difficult and unwelcome. Gordon McDougall has already been paid in full and the Brian Welsh situation is still on-going. It is a challenge and careful financial management has been brought to bear at the club. Everybody, the fans, the Supporters Club, the Supporters Trust certainly need to pull together and get behind the club in every way. For example, volunteer work at Central Park or raising funds as a lottery agent via lottery sales, etc., is the sort of practical assistance that can help your club. Contact the club on 01383 610166 or the Supporters Club Committee if you want to contribute. One of the main aims, however, is to bring more faces through the turnstiles on a Saturday.

    There has never been any change in strategy regarding a new ground. Our goal remains to relocate the club successfully and suitably develop Central Park. The current financial climate has made matters a good deal more difficult but we continue to try to make progress. We can certainly state these rumours are entirely false and are not at all helpful to the club. We wouldn’t have bothered devoting all the time, effort and resources we have put into the club since Gordon McDougall left if we had ever had such an agenda. Really we can’t understand the motivation for spreading such stories.
