I (David Kerr) left after 3 months as I had doubts about the interests of some people on the committee that I inherited . Wasn’t really planning on coming here to explain but I will give a brief explanation.

i went to my work on Tuesday as normal. I was Told by phone call that at 6pm that night the 2 remaining committee members were handing over our keys to hampden and that the club was going out the game. As a lifelong fan this obviously alarmed me . So I phoned the person in question and this was true. I offered to take the keys/documents etc without going to  hampden - this was declined. So I appeared at Hampden that night at 6pm to try and stop was about to happen and believe me on Tuesday night that 120 years of history were almost gone. After 3 hours at hampden the club was transferred to myself and we have survived.

To make it clear I had no intention of taking over but I was left with no option as it means to much to too many people. The previous regime let all but 4 players go so we are faced with a difficult task but we do have a team and we are in a position to play our cup tie on Saturday and fulfill our fixtures for the season. We now have a small committee ( always looking for more) . Our management team until the end of the season will be announced today as well.

Lastly I would like to offer out a huge thank you to everyone who has offered support and wished us well. The juniors is a family and I realise that more now than ever. 

Thank you

David Kerr

 

 

Good luck from all at Darvel

Good on you mate! Didn't realise it was that bad. You deserve huge amounts of credit and should be applauded for not letting such a historic club fall away from the game completely! For that you have my up most respect and support

Well done David you have to be highly commended for your actions. I am relatively new to the area but always get down to watch you guys when work allows. Hopefully this can be a clean slate for you all and the rebuild can begin.

Good luck fae all here at Irvine Vics. Loved our annual preseason friendlies, due to the family connections. Allowed me to catch up with a former work colleague. Missed this season's game, maybe resurrected this year.
All the best

Why were members of last regime so intent on handing over keys when there was someone willing to take over ? Let's hope these clowns are never involved in football again .

Did something similar not happen with Forfar WE few seasons back...resigned from league ?. Many clubs Hurlford , Whitletts , Ardeer have went into abeyance down the years without the club disappearing completely. 

Good to see Lang will continue , one of juniors famous clubs. Let's hope the new regime inject a bit of realism into the future. Nothing wrong with having investment but you also have to generate your own funds in case the sugar daddy moves on.

best of luck David. An abject lesson that nothing should be taken for granted ... that clubs dont just exist and  that its down to  hard work of good people. 

Line drawn and support should now be given.

And why would they hand the keys over to someone at Hampden?

That one had me baffled as well.

Also what hours do they work at Hampden? Arrived at 6pm and there for 3 hours.

Was there not a finance company puting money into the club?

Plan Zed a debt solutions company were our main shirt sponsors. Dunno whether to laugh or cry at that. Why under their influence did Camby go further towards the abyss? Deeply saddened.

 

We have some amateurs signed for the weekend from Third Lanark amateurs, Carluke amateurs and a few others too.
