Good to see a lot of people putting themselves forward for positions on the Trust board. Some well known and well respected new (and returning) names in there, there’s clearly an appetite to work with the new owners so fair play.


Candidate statements here - http://www.marinerstrust.co.uk.....d-Statements3273.pdf


Polls now open for all paid up members - https://forum.thefishy.co.uk/Blah.pl?m-1614027905/s-new/

New members eligible to vote as long as you join up before 28th Feb (this Sunday coming).

I’d imagine the new ownership of the club and the opportunity to overhaul many a thing related to GTFC has appealed to the candidates.

Always good to have variety and choice and whilst there’s a couple on the list I’ve not heard of or seen before, the list is well stocked with well read and forward thinking folk who care about GTFC and the supporters...

Get rid of Rutter and things will improve. Read his 900 words of waffle.

I am no expert on boards, but when we have 8 genuine looking people who want to be on the board and give time and effort for the benefit of our beloved club, why is the board limited to 6?

As I understand it Mr Rutter gave an interview to the Daily Mail saying that we should give May a chance. I can’t think of a better reason not to vote for him.

The rules that we work to have a maximum board size of 12 with 3 additional place co-opted during a year before standing for election at the next AGM.  Currently there are 9 board members and 1 co-opt, with 3 up for re-election along with the co-opt.  

There is no reason why anybody can't get involved with the trust and help without a board place.  It's actively encouraged in fact.

Thank you for explaining that Kristine; and I know what I need to know now.

Harsh that. Alan Rutter has worked incredibly hard for the club. He's a good bloke and doesn't deserve your words IMO.

In theory you could but in reality you wouldn’t look to co-opt somebody straight onto a board after they had just been unsuccessful in a contested election.  It looks like it’s undermining the whole voting process.

That’s not with this situation in mind but any where there is an election taking place.

A real strong and varied candidate field this year for sure.
