Cambridge Fans United representatives, Robert Osbourn and Nigel Pearce, met with Cambridge United Finance Director, Steve Chamberlain, last week. The meeting was arranged following CFU’s letter to the Club asking that more information be provided to shareholders ahead of the Club’s AGM http://www.cambridgefansunited.org/blog/cfu-has-written-to-cambridge-united In recent years only limited financial information has been made available to shareholders and this has made it difficult for them to have a clear understanding of the club's trading position.
CFU Trust Board Chair, Robert, said: “The meeting was positive and encouraging. Steve was able to give CFU an assurance that his wider agenda to provide improved information to all external stakeholders is already well progressed. This includes providing better financial information to shareholders ahead of the Club’s forthcoming AGM and he fully expects to be able to return to the same level of disclosure that shareholders were previously accustomed to, up to 2012. Steve has kindly offered to share a skeleton version of the Club’s 2018 Annual Statement and Financial Report to shareholders with CFU shortly.
CFU is glad of the opportunity to meet Steve and will welcome dialogue with other Board members in due course. At times of change, such as Cambridge United is experiencing at the moment, clear lines of communication with fans, shareholders and other stakeholders are vitally important as we each have a role to play in the club achieving success."
The date of the Cambridge United AGM is still to be confirmed, but is likely to be in late of March or early April.
Meanwhile, as followers of the “Apprentice Groundsman” blog will be well aware, a small group of U’s fans has been busy in action in all parts of the Abbey Stadium in recent months, smartening up the tired and scruffy areas, by clearing rubbish, tidying overgrown areas and painting inside and out to freshen up some of the worn out places.
In advance of the “Beast from the East”, the decision to cover the pitch was taken by Ian Darler to provide the best chance of being able to stage our match against Luton Town on its appointed date. A gang of us spent a whole morning battling the wind to get all the cover sheets in place and pegged down. Whether this proves to be successful is unknown at the time of writing, but if you are reading this on the first Saturday in March, those efforts will not have been in vain.
