News Update – 6th March 2020

March 6, 2020

With 3 consecutive defeats and teams below us winning, City have dropped to 19th in the league, only 3 points off the drop zone.

More disconcerting seems to be the lack of any aparrent plan or co-ordination on the pitch – with all due respect to Barnsley we made them look like Barcelona.

We also have another batch of injuries – do questions need to be asked about City’s coaching methods?

With 3 of our next 4 fixtures against teams below us in the Championship, March could well be a deciding month on which league we are in next season. 

Crowd Incidents at the Leeds United Match
The Trust wrote to the club this week asking for their comments on the incidents at the Leeds United match last Saturday (29th February)

Specifically we have asked:

1 –  Why were away fans found in the home section not ejected, as the club had stated they would do per ground regulations?

2 – Why were the Leeds fans from East/South stand walked in front of home fans in the East Stand, putting both sets of fans and the stewards at risk?

The Club/SMC have issued a statement regarding the matter – you can read it here

Nominees for Trust Board
Saturday 15th February was the deadline for nominations to be received for our Board election process.

This year, we have 6 board positions  available, and received 3 nominations by the  deadline set.

On Thursday (February 27th), our Secretary, (Jean), and the Election Management Group (EMG) met under the watchful eye of an independent observer to verify that the 3 nominees were all full members of the Trust and their applications matched the requirements of our Election Policy.

All 3 nominees have been approved to stand for election at our AGM on Saturday 2nd March.

Our appreciation goes to member Tom Irvin  as well as independent chair person Brian Hardy for conducting a thorough and transparent process as part of their EMG duties.

Good luck to all candidates standing for election.

Sunderland Ladies, who are top of the league, proved simply too strong, but the result is an improvement on the 9-1 defeat for the Tigresses in the previous meeting between the two clubs.
