Trust statement on today’s press reports
Fulham fans are alarmed and concerned by further stories in the national press this morning about the circumstances surrounding the departure of Fulham Football Club’s former assistant director of football operations and director of statistical research.
Whilst employment issues at Fulham Football Club should remain confidential, any implications following last week’s events interest anyone who cares passionately about Fulham Football Club. The Fulham Supporters’ Trust intend to discuss this matter fully with Fulham Football Club’s chief executive officer, Alistair Mackintosh, and other senior Club officials during our upcoming regular structured dialogue meeting at Motspur Park later this month.
Tom Greatrex, chair of the Fulham Supporters’ Trust said: “The Trust and senior management at Fulham football club have worked hard over recent times to develop a strong relationship where the independent fans organisation has structured dialogue with the Club on issues of importance. It is not enjoyable to read about such apparently stark division behind the scenes, and it should be no surprise that the implications for the club have prompted concerns and questions from Trust members. It is part of our role to put those concerns to the Club, and we will do so when we meet later this month. This is a very significant time for the Fulham both on and off the field, and we want to see a focussed and united organisation making progress.”
