He signed the player , the night before a semi final and should have been doubly sure of no suspensions or tell the coach to leave him out squad .

Such a serious situation and potential massive financial loss to club that Mr Muirhead should also go.

Whilst he is the Chairman he is only really new to the position and has had to oversee the Club move from the East Juniors to the EOSL. IMHO no reason to resign.

The fact that due diligence wasn't adhered to prior to the signing makes the Secretaries position untenable. Proper procedure has to be followed before, during and after signing a player. The information on this Player was available on the SFA list of those suspended, along with (in Red) the warning to check out those still there from previous seaspns.  

The question to ask is there procedures in place to follow when signing players? If not why not?

"The player in question that was ineligible to play was signed late on Friday afternoon, by myself and a huge effort was made to get the paperwork scanned through to Hampden in the hope of getting registered for the Saturday.

At this time the suspension list was checked as it usually is every week prior to a game but with the player not being listed as a Bo'ness United player at the time of the suspension it was missed and was a genuine error on behalf of the club secretary Douglas Argent and myself."

Well of course, if you're signing an unattached player they are unlikely to be listed under Bo'ness... :rolleyes:

At least Dundonald had a slightly more plausible (but still bullshit) excuse, saying they searched for the player's name but it was misspelled - Bo'ness don't even appear to have done that!

A head has rolled, correctly on this occasion.  Carrying out an internal witch-hunt isn't going to change anything.

Good luck to the new secretary, he is going to need it.

We are all entitled to our opinions , that’s why we come on here , but IMHO Mr Muirhead has admitted he was part of the “!mistake” so must also go .
No witch hunt , just the right thing to do .

The secretary accepts that he missed the players suspension when he checked the list and he has resigned. 

That's the only head you're getting.

Of course you are. However, do you know of people within the committee willing to take over these positions if Ian Muirhead had gone as well ? 

I feel sorry for us the supporters but more so for the management and players who got us to the Final. However, they showed by their attitude on Saturday they are committed.

Lets put this episode to bed and get behind the club for what will be our hardest match of the season. Minus Will, Ross C, Ross M and likely Hunts.

The bairns have given up turning up at his front door looking for sweets.  They know he's already eaten them all.

That's rich considering they had a 'penny for the guy' on yours.

Not been a good week off the park but we have turned a corner - the fixture board has been updated and Dunipace, Haddington, 6th October and 2.30 pm have finally been replaced by Bonnyrigg, 3rd November, 2 pm - now if we could similarly fix the defence!

Josh Watt any good?

When he's in the mood he's fairly good, but he didn't seem to be in the mood very often. He might shine in different circumstances.

Michael Mcmullin any good?

 

 

Was only with us a few months (joined in August after a spell at Albion Rovers). Can play as a left or centre back. Didn't set the world alight but a solid player all round and was a first teamer.

Strange but ladbrokes who I believe have not made any price changes on the totally scottish coupon this year (Apart from SFL & FA Cup) have made one change this week.

Bonnyrigg were Evens now 1/2

Something must be amiss ?
