I did say I would not comment on the current situation at Leigh East but having read the statement from Dave I feel compelled to throw my ten bobs worth in.
It is clear from all the noises coming out of the club that egotistic people are destroying it..
I know there are many good people past and present at the club and I count most as friends despite being on the end of a disgraceful committee decision some twenty years ago that's an issue between two people at Leigh East and myself which one day I will get closure .
Leigh East have always been a club which was tight nit ( cut one and they all bleed ) and admired by many in the game , all that is now sadly lost as the opposite is now the case .
So surely the members of Leigh East must get their club back by challenging the current committee to come to the members with evidence of what they bring to the table and what their progress have been under their tenure , I am led to believe that the present club constitution has been changed to protect the current committee that surely can not be right .
It is well documented that Leigh East faced a battle with the local council and won that with the old Leigh East spirit ,helped along with others by Janet Pendlebury and Keith Latham .
I find it baffling that someone at the club would not want the likes of Keith to draw on his experience to assist Dave and his fellow coaches to help steady a sinking ship.
Surely the club can see the mess they are in and no doubt they will be working hard but maybe just maybe they are not focussed on the right aims and objectives ,
Its time for some at the club to start looking into mirrors and asking themselves questions are they in it for the well being and future of the club or are they just on egotistic power trips ..
Many inside and outside the club know the answer , for the good of the club and the town, if the cap fits swallow your pride and ask for help from the old guard or resign.
