Statement from Robins Trust Chairman Clive Gowing regarding article in the Gloucestershire Echo
I look forward to discussing the article with many of you in person at Thursday nights AGM but felt it was fair to explain a few points to those supporters who can’t make the night.
Following Tim Kent’s departure in the summer I agreed as the only accountant on the club board to take on the role of finance director on a temporary basis whilst the club explored different options of how the club accounts would be completed going forward.
This was discussed with the Trust board and I stated on record to both the club board and trust board that a firm arrangement needed to be in place by the Trust AGM so this could be communicated to the Trust members. This still remained in place until the echo contacted me last week stating they would be running an article with or without my input.
