Board must work together

I attended Berwick Rangers AGM and it was good to see other candidates willing to be elected to serve on the board.

The voting process lasted longer than anyone envisaged and once the results had been determined, the chairman asked for any other business.

I was shocked at the way one of the shareholders questioned one of the board members. The matter was concerning the purchase of shares from the departed chairman, who was obviously upset at this outburst. This matter had no relevance to the AGM.

It became apparent that this type of questioning was not going to stop and the chairman had no option but to close the meeting.

As a shareholder and a passionate supporter, I was very disappointed that this incident overshadowed the chance for any positive feedback from the board and from the manager, who was present at the meeting.

No one had a chance to ask questions about football matters, or any of the positive moves that the manager or the board have recently made.

The board is just like a football team. It must play all together or not at all.
