Keith are you looking to generate support for Leigh Easts cause, or are you trying to alienate people by raising pointless questions aimed at people like myself ?
You know were the association with Leigh Miners Rangers lies , I can honestly say that I did not know Lord Peter Smith was the honorary vice president , and I,m fairly confident a lot of other people don't know either.
Bit of advice my old mate what is needed now to fight Leigh East,s cause is to act in a dignified and professional manner and stick to things that are relevant to the cause and not to bring personalities into the equation you will lose support otherwise , conducting business on internet forums is not wise , East need to sit down around the table with the council and thrash out a deal and use a third party if necessary.
The council are saying its a cost cutting measure, well as a club you need to challenge that with cold hard facts and show them that their cost cutting measures will fold the club force some kids onto the streets and we know where that could lead , they then would lose the goodwill of the people they are supposed to represent.
It has been reported that the LSV is struggling well use that to back up your defence ask them to compare both the LSV and yourselves as to which costs the tax payers more ?
Mick just proving that it might be a conflict of interest for those to make decisions on Leigh east . On the subject of getting round a table well . 41 meetings in 5 years , 250 hrs lost at work , yes I'm self employed . You mention hard facts we have 12 files full of hard facts . 3rd parties we have had a solicitor and other councillor s including andy Burnham . Lsv struggling , last year they got a bailout from Wigan council of £500k . You see it's all been done and still being done . I attended a meeting at Leigh east on Monday evening for 4 hours , we are trying mick , we might need to fight dirty when it comes to it . One good thing that's come of all this is that Leigh east are stronger than ever at committe level , Janet and myself are back , everyone is buzzing it really is good to be back
