I assume you have all read the club statement issued Friday.
We do intend to respond to this statement as it is an attack on the Supporters Club and the Committee and is factually incorrect.
What I will say is we have never been given any indication of the feelings mentioned by the board on behalf of Mr. Hopkin. In fact, our secretary has, over the last 3 months, tried without success to get in touch with Mr. Hopkins. We have also contacted Paul Gwyn, and no one has come back to us.
It is surprising that flags have been judged to be the cause of Mr. Hopkin’s action. It also detracts from the fact that yet again we have been put in financial crisis by the board.
We will be holding a meeting next week and will issue a formal statement then.
