The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

Did they say if we have a shirt sponsor for next season?

Yeah a local company the owner of which is a big Falkirk fan. That’s all the detail they went into obviously wanting to wait until the strip launch to tell us any more.

Alexander Dennis would be a good fit for a shirt sponsor to coincide with the re-naming of the South Stand considering Crunchie used to work for them in Camelon back in the day when they were Alexanders.

Was at the first meeting and thought they all spoke very well, Kenny Jameson in particular. Some good information and some absolute damning stuff about the past. The fact we had no system in place to check whether our sponsors had paid or not for the signage in the stadium and that some had been up for over 3 years without the club being paid at all is an absolute embarrassment. That along with signing up they absolute jokers as our shirt sponsor last year were just the tip of the iceberg of how badly we’ve been run in the past and how terrible previous boards and our former Commercial Manager had done.

Agreed.

It was good and the new Board came over well.

Mind you, we’ve heard it all before but I think they are very genuine.

The Rawlins are taking a back seat and won’t be investing any more.

The aim is to develop a community spirit within the club, including with the players. Sarah seems to be on board with this which is pleasing.

Apparently, they’ve had a few potential investors sniffing about but nothing that needs to be brought to shareholders as yet.

All in all a good meeting and I don’t think much will happen player wise till John and Paul get back from holiday.

They definitely want to train on grass away from the stadium.

Nothing wrong with that.
Trust you’ll be upping your FSS subscription?
Just checking your commitment to FFC.
Not that it's not already obvious from your abysmal posting on here, but folk like you are actively harmful to initiatives like FFS. Just shut up about other folks decisions and circumstances.

Arse.

Came away from the meeting in no doubt that we have some tough times ahead financially ,  I do however have more confidence in the  the current board to guide us through these tough times. They did not hold back from the fact that the backing from the fans whether it be ST’s/FSS/BFL/CI membership is vital and the fact the FSS needs to grow if we are to buy up the shares currently available to us to create investment for the club. 
 

Its definitely going to take a wee bit time to get us back on the right tracks but I came out of there a bit more optimistic than I have previous meetings.

Apologies for dropping into your thread but I'm heading through to Falkirk on Monday to see the Killers. I've got no idea about where's best to park! Any suggestions would be appreciated

Best shout would be the college 5 minute walk from the stadium

Its very minor but one slight annoyance with the ST info is if you're going to the trouble of renaming a stand in honour of the player of the millennium please refer to it as such. 

The CI have not spent considerable time and effort for it to remain the South Stand!

It should be known as the Kevin McAllister South Stand in all references to it.

Cheers bud

There's also the industrial estate. College to the right of the away stand (as you approach it), over the roundabout then right at the lights. IE is on the left of the stand and over the bridge.

I'm assuming there'll be parking at the stadium too but, no doubt, it'll be extortionate!

Appalling that previous bods and commercial/marketing managers allowed this to happen. Free advertising or was there something more sinister?
Why on earth something simple like an internal audit didn’t highlight this. A club rotten to the core.

The clowns on the previous bod including our previous commercial director shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the ground again. Amateur at best criminal at worst. The club was heading into an abyss with those chancers in the board room.

Mind boggles what a certain employee was actually doing for around forty five weeks of the year.
