Why I got involved is easy, during the month of investigatory due diligence it was clear the club was bust and the heroic folk that were barely keeping the life support machine running had run out of ammo.
I asked my kids, finance director, lawyers, accountants, friends, bankers, staff..... DONT DO IT!! All felt it was a no win situation. But I could see the really important role the club played in the community.
The simple truth is that for the first 18 month I thought “why the f**k didn’t I listen?” “Why am I so awkward and why do I always get myself in these situations?” I wish I hadn’t done it because despite putting cash in to keep the club..
ITS OUR CLUB, IM GLAD I DID IT, we love the character and charm of our club. Yes we will improve it and build it...
Come On Stanley!!!
