At the Annual General Meeting of the Club last Wednesady night a decision was taken to implement a major overhaul of the Club which will involve significant restructuring. Club Secretary Des Clancy highlighted the expansion of the Club in recent years in response to the ever increasing numbers of players & teams and advised that there was an urgent need now to update systems within the Club to cope with the extra workload involved.
Separate Clubs will be set up in respect of the four main sections of the Club – Adult Men, Ladies/Girls, Schoolboys (eleven-a-side) and Schoolboys (seven-a-side). Each will be run by its own Committee with its own responsibilities & authority and each will report to a new Management Committee.
‘We want to see football people running the football & we want to recruit people with business or administrative skills to a Management Committee to run the business affairs of the Club with responsibility for the development of Tully Park. This Management Committee will eventually be converted to a Limited Company and it will retain overall authority over the four Football Clubs ongoing. It will take a while to put the necessary structures into place but interim measures are already in place to ensure a seamless change over’ – Des Clancy.
The outgoing Committee were all re-elected an an interim measure and it is anticipated that an Extraordinary General meeting will be called in the near future to formally agree the restructure.
Committee details can be found on the Club Contact Information page.
