  1. Thanks for sharing that brought back a good few memories, what a day out that one was!
  2. I am finding it hard to separate the football club with the problems with the concert company. I get why a separate company was set up to protect the football club but, is the football club not relying on profits from the concerts to keep it solvent? The accounts that were signed off in May 22 for the football club says under going concern that the company can meet its liabilities for the coming 12 months with projections reliant on new income streams, in particular from contracted entertainment events. I can only assume that this relates to the concerts???? If this is the case we could be in deep financial trouble.
  3. Doesn't look like tabloid bullshit unfortunately, the letter sent to all creditors asking them to accept the CVA and accept a dividend of 65% of what is owned to them was published in the Courier. What is confusing is that the directors are blaming the production company for going over budget. Did the club not organise everything themselves to maximise profits for the football club? So they are the production company????? Whatever way you look at it, its a disaster for the clubs reputation with the local community. How can you get local businesses to support the club when several will be out of pocket after the concerts.
  4. Like Fraz I too have been on the trust board and was chair for a while a few years ago. It can be a thankless job with people quick to criticise but not so quick to help improve things! The Trust has been stagnant for a few years now due to many things including lack of active members and not having a great relationship with the club. Covid didn't help neither! I really welcome the statement from the football club now showing a willingness to work with the trust and I hope that our supporters will get on board and join the trust to make it a strong voice for the fans. At the end of the day with around a 12% shareholding the trust should have a much stronger voice within the club. The only one concern that I do have is that the current football club directors and CEO have a better understanding of what a trust can do and how it can benefit the football club and not expect the trust to be a cash cow for the football clubs running costs. There is a lot of work to do and this is only the start of re launching the supporters trust. So get behind them, join the trust and have a voice to make things better. And finally yes I'm also born and bread Invernessian too (not that this should really matter).
  5. I didn't sponsor last season neither, but have done so in the past. Does seem like its just turning into a bit of a donation to the club. It seems odd especially when you look at the names of the sponsors, the vast majority are individual supporters and not companies. To do a sponsors night and a wee thank you in recognition would not cost the club much but means a lot to the fans who have used their hard eared cash to sponsor a player. As for hospitality, its such a shame that its become very expensive and not as inclusive for the day to day fans. As somebody who would do at least a couple of hospitalities a season, usually more, just feel that the bread and butter fans are not really the clubs target audience any more.
  6. a permanent memorial would be a great thing for the club to do. It would pull together to bricks outside and the tiles in the tunnel
  7. As section E has been a designated area for a very long time for signing, id find it strange that there would be an issue with season ticket holders to have the young team back in the front rows. And yes, my season ticket is in section E
  8. Dad got his delivery from Scott yesterday too, made his day.
  9. Totally shocked by the news, a true ICT fan who was there from the start. Many happy memories with Bronson in the "old days", cant believe he's gone. My heart goes out to his family and in particular his lovely dad. RIP Bronson
  10. Who is already in our hall of fame? Would be helpful to know so we aren’t suggesting somebody already in it. But for hall of fame I’d out Tokley and if a manager is allowed Pete. Memory is when we beat Hearts in the Scottish cup 2002, another magnificent unexpected 3-1 result
  11. When my kids were little back in the first division first time round the club did family hospitality a couple of times a season. All the players were involved after the game. At one there was a giant chocolate fountain and my kids still go on about that day. My youngest won a signed ball, every table had one to win, and it’s still pride of place in my living room. Stuff like this should be done again. It was always a sell out.
  12. To be honest im really confused over the foundation. It was launched at the 25th anniverary ball the other week and all the funds raised (over 27k from the auction alone) was in aid of the foundation. But there seems very little detail anywhere on what exactly this foundation is about or as you say the governance around it.
  13. This makes it very strange that somebody who was so commited and as you say right in the middle of different things to up and go like this and not at least finish what she started. Where does this leave the new foundation that she was key in setting up?
  14. I have always liked the idea of the killie trust. https://killietrust.killiefc.com/ Its been very sucessful in raising much meeded funds for the club while geting a fans representative on their board.
  15. definately will be going, still smiling from yesterday, cant wait.
