I had a ninety-minute meeting yesterday with Ronnie Boyd. It was very enlightening! I now have a much clearer understanding of just how hard a small group of people are working behind the scenes to keep the show on the road. Hopefully my discussion paper will help regarding an increase in crowds but the strategy is heavily dependent on volunteers and that resource is already stretched. If any of my suggestions are taken up they will have to be prioritised.
I am grateful to Ronnie for giving up his time to meet me and for applying a bit of Rovers realism to my "new boy" enthusiasm. I can't think of many clubs where I would have been given such an opportunity to present my ideas.
It was great to meet you Bob and will pass your paper to the chairman first of all and then onto full board for consideration. Any ideas to raise the club's profile, to get more people coming to games and bring more income into the club will be considered. Your input is welcomed in trying to whip up interest in hospitality packages , the squad fund etc.
