Who is Danny Lee (and what are his expected goals)?

He was a sort of Head of Operations - in charge of Commercial, ticketing etc.  Responsible for the matchday hospitality being a big success in the last couple of seasons.  I would imagine he has been headhunted or seen an opportunity higher up the food chain.

King of prawn sandwiches, undoubtedly there are plenty of opportunities for someone like that that pay better. Let's not forget there's massive churn all over the shop with the job market as it is, so perhaps not a surprise we've lost a few backroom staff.

Reading the minutes, I'm confused why the lad that does the flags who seems to have got involved with the broadbent podcast suddenly turn up on the advisory board (wasn't it him that kept bragging he was in contact with clem before the takeover), then I read they have got to decide who to send if they rotate it with fans going along, surely this cheapens the point of the AB, I thought it was corporate club sponsors being invited and rotating it looks like the same corporate sponsor has been invited more than once now.

Why are people from fan podcasts being invited now, surely fan representation is what the trust and SC are there for ?!

Did the club put names in a pot and pick them out to pad out the numbers ?

I'm all for engagement but with the right people.

I also notice the debts on the FL loans are now not going down last couple of months.

Assuming these are still being collected by the Trust:

Chris Kiely has appeared in the programme as a Director of STFC. Can you tell us about:

- His background, and how and when he became involved in the club?
- Is he an investor, or shareholder, or just someone brought in to provide expertise?
- If he's providing expertise, in what areas?
- How does this affect or change the existing management structure of the club including Clem, Zav, Rob, Sandro and Scott?

And more generally:

- Can the club commit to introducing new directors in a clearer, more managed way in the future? A line appearing in the programme and nothing else can lead to unhelpful inferences and rumours spreading online

That would be a perfectly legitimate answer, but it would be good for the club to answer it, and be in the habit of explaining appointments. Sandro himself is not a director of the club, so Kiely is "senior" to him in that respect.

Agree, I would have expected it to have been something the club issued a press release about, advising fans who he is and why he is a director of the club and any shareholding he has

I must have missed it, what is the debt with Mercedes, is it Jeds motors?

I know I am a grumpy sod but in the big scheme of things, what is this obsession about building a statue?

A point of clarity may be needed, especially when they start producing their own accounts.  Overall debt is not down to 1.1m - the ring fenced external debt they picked up when they took over is down to that level, but there was other debt and no doubt new debt since.  Of course, who that is owed to and the terms are all important to.

2:16pm
Case adjourned

A short hearing, much shorter than expected, and the case has been adjourned off.

But a big update from today's hearing, and that is that Centreplate UK has been substituted into the winding-up petition in place of Able.

A new hearing will take place in the coming months to decide on whether the company that runs Town should be wound-up.
