Cefn Druids
 
I wasn't sure which side of the fence this should go, so, I'm putting it on here.
The headlines in today's Leader was about an injection of funds going into Cefn Druids and the ambition of two businessmen, a Mr Williams who owns Global Travels in town and a Mr Digwood the owner of a Sports Solution firm in Spain.
They have ambitious plans for the Club. The manager Huw Griffiths and his assistant to go full time, the playing staff to go full time.
Plans for a fitness centre and hotel complex at the Rock.
Expand the capacity of there ground.
Development of there Academy.
Fair play to all concerned. I think the big brother in the Borough could learn a thing or two about this investment.

Sounds impressive also wanting to take over running of a local pub.

This story must be false as there is no one local who wants to put money into a football club.

To be fair, are these just grand plans or is the cold hard cash waiting to be spent?

Plus, I'm sure the Welsh League is facing the threat of losing it's only champions league spot with this Europa league 2 nonsense.

They’ll probably end up in the Football League before us when they don’t even play in our league system.

Isn't there a hotel coming by the new Aldi

Re: Cefn Druids
 
Strikes me as an odd location for a hotel.

Ryans the man 7th November 2019 10.33:23

Re: Cefn Druids
 
Maybe they will get involved with a brewery running a local pub or a pub at the site of the new Aldi's in Ruabon. Management going full time is a big step forward and looking to increase ground capacity. Either way it's nice to have positive news about a club looking for investment and expanding.

Amazing isn't it what can be achieved with visionary leaders that know how to run a business. It cannot be done by well meaning volunteers that do not have the skill sets. The fact that our leadership claim otherwise proves they do not understand what is involved.

So a tiny football club in the Borough, is getting investment. Meanwhile, the much bigger Iprofessional club, can't attract a bean of interest.

Only at Wrexham..

Who's said they haven't attracted interest? It would just get turned down though..

Re: Cefn Druids
 
Think Wxm need to let members know if there has been any outside interest with investment. If so then when, by who, how much, what clauses were in any offers? It's all been pretty quiet with all of this.

Might have something to do with the club being actively hostile to outside investment.

Understand corporate travel is a factor, but not sure why this is a more sensible option than ramada or premier inn...

Cos you'd get stunning views of Rhosymedre and Cefn. Historic sites such as the old Kwiksave, the old Monsanto site and dicks shop with the old fair ground next to it. Easily on par with anything else this country has to offer.

Its got the Llangollen Canal ,( the town itself too )close by and the country park and a World Heritage site. You only need to go to Ironbridge (another World Heritage site ) to see the bus loads of Chinease and every other nationality hoarding through the place!
If you have always lived in the immediate area all your life , do you think you might not be seeing what others may very well be ,especially in the years to come ?

Ever since the WST was hijacked by an ideologically driven few there has been no intention of running the club in a way that would see it reach its potential. The club is now only a vehicle for those few to continue their failed experiment.

The change occurred when 5 members of the wst board joined the club board, meaning the club board are not held to account, and are virtually untouchable because there is not enough remaining wst board members to remove them even if they wanted to.

There are only 4 WST board members on the club board.
The constitution demands that the WST has a majority of Football board members.
The members elect the trust board and have a chance annually to deselect / elect a candidate.(or 3) If you don't like a FC board member, don't vote for him when his time as a WST board member is up.
The trust board are required to nominate a minimum of 3 WST board members to the trust board.
If you are not on the trust board then you cannot have one of those positions.
Phil Salmon is at present the only person who has been asked to join the FC board as he has the skill set that was perceived to be missing.
Under consideration is a Director of Football position.

Re: Cefn Druids
 
Cefn will be bankrupt in a year and taken to the cleaners, they will join Bury.

How stupid are people the only way forward for football clubs is to go fan owned and die a more slower agonising death run by volunteers.

And a Cartel at the top the real Peaky Blinders and their brainwashed followers.

The constitution got the club in this mess, so the constitution should be changed. I'm sure as a fierce defender of the rules, you will have no issues with current board members being excluded from future elections if the rules are changed to limit a Max 2 terms. Keep defending them. Sad how the fan ownership model at wrexham was praised nationally before the current chairman and board took control, and results were better too.
