Supporters Club AGM update

Oct 29, 2021 | News

Bristol Rovers Supporters Club held a successful AGM on Thursday evening at Lockleaze Sports Centre and would like to thank all their members who braved the rain on a foul night to attend.

The meeting ratified the new appointments to the Executive Committee, the make-up of which is shown below.

David Thomas- Chair

Helen Wigmore – Vice Chair & Share Sheme Rep

Sue Williams – Treasurer

Keith Brookman – Secretary

Janet Wooster – Social

Sam Parsons – Membership Secretary, Website Manager & Safeguarding Officer

Leanne Hawkins – Away Travel

Jamie Howarth becomes our match-Day organiser and joins the Committee along with Patricia Gardener. We welcome them both to the Committee and look forward to working with them.

Our Chair David Thomas explained to the meeting that he was still talking to the Football Club about our representation on the board and the hope is that we may be allowed the two directorships that the Share Scheme Agreement allows for. Helen Wigmore and Stephen Lamble have both been proposed, seconded and accepted by the Football Club as our two candidates for these extremely important positions. Should we only be allowed one directorship an (expensive) postal ballot will be held in accordance with our rules.

David also re-iterated that the Supporters Club is not a closed shop and we will always welcome help and ideas from anyone, especially with regard to appealing to our younger supporters.

Coach travel to away games, the 50/50 draw, the Supporters Club’s relationship with the Football Club, and a £50,000 investment into the Football Club all came up as questions in a question and answer session before the meeting closed.
