Feedback from Communication Meeting regarding proposal to amalgamate with North Shore United

Last night we have a really positive communication meeting to discuss the proposal to amalgamate with North Shore United.

There were some really good questions and it was great to listen to our members’ feedback.

A number of queries were raised but a couple seemed to be ones that people really wanted clarification on.

These were:

Query

Why is an amalgamation being proposed?

Answer

Our desire is to provide our members a Club that is sustainable and able to deliver a player experience that is second to none across all levels and teams.

We believe an amalgamation allows us to achieve this and also opens up the opportunity for improved facilities – grounds and Clubrooms and more playing opportunities for our players with ultimately teams playing in the National League (Men’s and Women’s).

Query

Will this mean I now have to travel elsewhere to train and play?

Answer

No. You will still train and play within the location where you currently train and play.

Query

Will the fees increase?

Answer

There is no intention to raise fees due to the proposed amalgamation.

Query

Will the Club's current coaching focus and programmes change?

Answer

There is no intention to change focus and we would be looking to make our programmes even better.

Query

Will the Clubrooms at Becroft Park still operate? 

Answer

Yes, the Clubrooms at Becroft Park will remain as a valuable asset of the proposed new Club and will continue to operate in the manner they currently do.

 

Where to from here?

The Steering Group are meeting next week and we will continue to update you on progress.
