AGM Notice - By Steven Mew

The Brechin City Management Committee can confirm that plans are in place to host the Club’s 115th AGM on Monday 30th August 2021.

This will take place – albeit still provisionally – at Glebe Park, starting at 7pm. This statement provides formal constitutional notice to all members – i.e. season Ticket holders for Season 2021/22.

Club Members will be well aware that public health guidance resulted in the club holding the previous AGM in August 2020, leading to the unusual deferral beyond the conventional July date. Based on current Scottish Government guidance we will continue to plan for August in the same format as last year.

The event will continue to be held in the David H Will Stand in the seated enclosure facing the pitch – rather than inside the City Club itself.

To allow facilitation of this, the Management Committee respectfully insists upon strict co-operation from all members in attendance, as the Club is understandably required to fully comply with public health guidance. Information for attendees is as follows:

• Members will be seated in the stand, in pre-designated marked seats, allowing 2 metre social distancing to be fully maintained at all times.

• Members will be encouraged to wear face coverings and make use of the hand sanitiser available at the entrance and exit from the stand.

• One way entry to and exit from the stadium will be clearly marked and will be via the vehicle gates adjacent to the turnstile block.

The nature of a members-only meeting means the Club is perfectly placed for any follow up action required through Test & Protect, given that members will have their attendance routinely registered in any case.

The whole protocol could be subject to change based on Scottish Government guidance at the time but we will keep all members updated.

The meeting will include the Office Bearers’ Reports and an update from the new Manager. Also included as an Agenda Item will be a full comprehensive report with regards to the successful incorporation of the Club and the next stage of the process.

Following the EGM on 31/05/21 the following officer bearers and committee members were co-opted into the club.

Chairman: Kevin Mackie
Vice Chairman: Grant Johnson
Secretary: Gary Robertson
Treasurer: John Littlewood

Committee: Clark Renilson, Murray Lindsay, David Taylor, Grant Turriff, Dean Greig, Paul Winter, Graham Donald

Any further nominations for the Management Committee should be submitted in writing to: The Secretary, Brechin City FC, Glebe Park, Brechin, DD9 6BJ or emailed to secretary@brechincityfc.com. The secretary should be in receipt of any such applications by 5pm on Monday 23rd August 2021.

The new Management Committee is looking forward to seeing all members. There is a clear vision for the club as we move forward and it is hoped that everyone will embrace the future and the aims of everyone involved. The Highland League should be seen as a new challenge which will be competitive in nature but an opportunity for the club to grow in stature on and off the park and make sure there will be a strong model in place to take the club forward for years to come.

Whilst every precaution will be taken, each member planning to attend should take full individual responsibility and, although it may sound harsh, we would actively encourage anyone feeling unwell to simply stay away.

It is stressed that, at time of writing, there can be no absolute guarantee that the AGM will take place as planned – but members should remain assured that if a further postponement is required, it will have been driven by authorities and circumstances outwith the Club. Any changes to this planned event will be communicated with the maximum notice possible – primarily via the Club’s official website and social media channels.
