Unfortunately, Mondays are a no-no for me (I run an old people's club on that night!). can I still claim my gift though?

Steve, surprisingly enough, there are older people than me! (Yes, I know it's difficult to believe!)

The AR costume (tights and all) has long since been consigned to the recycling!

Elvis may be revived - who knows?? Very Happy Very Happy

I don't know if anyone took any notes, Chris talked for 15mins about future plans and how things have gone since the takeover, Fenners took some questions ...Then Q & A for 20 mins, then food and TRUST presentation AGM...
attended by about 80 people which was a great turnout!!!
I'm sure someone will have more detailed notes...

Mr Swan, his wife Saille and to an extend Fenners ( Senile ) spoke at our TRUST AGM Monday. He came across very well indeed, he explained the deal to purchase the club, what he has found so far, what his immediate plans are and he took questions from the attendees and answered these open and honestly (albeit one chap riled him continously about the managers position!).

Both Chris and his wife Saille have really got stuck into the club and got there hands dirty with all of the jobs required. They have already got 30 boards sorted in the commercial area for the club next season. He also explained that they need £130k a season just to open the gates, we currently bring in £23k so you see the massive gap. He will be addressing that through commercial activities as we have had little at RUFC previously. He also explained that the community is key with the club, they are looking at initiatives for NVQ's with the college and hopefully Graham Hyde will stay with the club to develop a Football in the Community scheme to aid this. Grant aid is a key area of focus so that we can look at getting facilities to help this. Short term the pitch and ground need to be sorted out, longer term Mr Swan is looking at the options available with the ground to open up income streams.

This is the key area, commercially we need to bring in more money to fund the club on its own means. Chris, Sallie & Fenners have so far sold 30 boards, by doing so they also want to ensure that those businesses/individuals are given something back. New College will not be the clubs sponsor next season, they will however be working with the club on areas linked to Football In The Community. We therefore have to look at sponsorship and a list of available sponsorship packages was provided to all at the meeting for people to take away to see if employers, friends, families etc would be interested. One of the biggest things is bringing the whole club together, the youth sections need to be integrated back into the club. It was also identified that the ladies section that has 100 odd members is left out on a limb so Chris is having a meeting with the people who run that section. The lady who raised this is currently involved with Everton ladies and has offered her services to RUFC in respect of educational courses and the Football In The Community work. Now there is a person who obviously has skills and experience that could reallyt aide the club, the previous management did not know this!

A lot of Q's were asked ranging from the manager position (Chris said he would sit down with Redders at the end of the season), friendlies, pitch, youth/ladies section, future plans, shareholders, ground etc. All answered openly and honestly by Mr Swan.

Our TRUST although small at the moment has actually kept the club going this season by donating over £10k to aid the club, not massive amounts of money but helped keep the club ticking. Paying off EON when they called in debt, coaches, saviour for the Swan deal etc. The TRUST has a crucial role to play with the club and Chris wants to work with TRUST to aid the future of the club.

There were a few surprises on the night:

1. The attendance - 80+
2. The attendance after the interval
3. TRUST raising 11k in 8 months
4. 32 advertising boards sold already
5. How boring Fenners is when he talks about the grass/pitch improvements
6. Budget already prepared for next season
7. Minutes being taken by Sallie
8. Chris commitment to meet monthly with TRUST
9. Transparency with finances

All in all, a very good night
