Exciting Development!

Update from the SC :)

Our Search for a New Home for K’s
You may have seen details of the Director’s latest update on the search for new ground. Kingstonian FC and the Supporters Club have been invited by the Leader of Kingston Council to a meeting in early May at one of the potential sites. We will be attending along with representatives of the current leaseholders, so this seems like a potentially very positive development. The Supporters Club are pleased to be able to assist the football club in the search for a new home for Kingstonian in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

Sounds very promising!

You created a new identity just to post that??

Fans have recently been questioning the blind loyalty shown by the SC to the Directors. Now the SC are creating sock puppet accounts to blow smoke up their own arse! You're fooling no-one.

Maybe it's time for the ignored fans to set up their own supporters trust or something similar? KBH?

Get the fireworks & bunting out
It PARTY time

We’ve been down this road many times, it’s minor positives again (is that to negative Dave & Co, just what to verify that’s fine.)
It’s like test batter has hit a 4 in test cricket to get his score to double figures. Not a 50 or 100 that’s worth celebrating.
We’re still far behind the 50/100 celebrations bit for Ks & a future home. IT’s progress (again) but we’ve been here before)

So let’s all calm down

This is interesting:

What exactly is the role of SC? In recent weeks, with the board under scrutiny, lack of fans forum etc, we’ve been repeatedly told that the role of the SC is the arrange transport and fundraise for the club. If they’re now invited to represent fans at ground visits, has their remit changed? If so, I look forward to them holding the directors to account and providing some much needed scrutiny, as well as a fans forum!

would be good to know

we all value the work of away travel and fundraising.

but if the SC is more than that. not aiming to being a comms piece of the club and asking questions and being involved in decisions that will affect this club long after the directors are gone, then I’d happily sign up

I quite welcome the supporters club being involved and given fan representation, but who in the supporters club decides who that representative is going to be? Do the SC committee just choose this themselves or do the actual SC get to Coe on who attends these things? It see,s there’s certain people running the SC that take it upon themselves to speak on behalf of everyone else with little authority to do so.

Very exciting if this was in about 2017.

We've already had one recent 'site visit' attended by someone from the Supporters Club, and the site proved so unsuitable that I don't think we heard anything about it again.

Any communication, however minor, is appreciated. But we've had so many false dawns - it's now six years since we actually looked at detailed plans for a new ground on Chessington Golf Club - that stuff like this is hard to find 'exciting'.

Agreed, too many empty promises. There's another stadium down Jack Goodchild Way. We're a Kingston club and not a Borough club, no matter how anyone from the board or supporters club tries to spin it.

Confirms what we have known for a long time. The supporters club are in cahoots with the board and that it's taken the board almost nine years to be able give some sort of updates on our search and to visit a site. There's two grounds in Kingston, one occupied and one free. Bring the K's home and get rid of these incompetent dinosaurs and chancers.

Great that it seems something is happening

presumably the supporters club is there to represent supporters views, so how do we best feedback to the supports club?

Unless you've paid your subscription fee your views are not valid & not welcome. Especially if those views differ from the "everything is just fine" mindset.

They've been awfully quiet on here since KBH exposed their incompetence...
