For a new organisation it is always going to be difficult from a standing start to make an impact on the game. Launched with much goodwill and excitement less than a fortnight ago, it was always going to take us time to get established and to build our credibility.
It was encouraging that we had enough fans following us from Inverness Caley Thistle and Falkirk that we were able to listen to them and then take those views onboard.
Further encouragement and acknowledgement of that input (before decisions were being made) came in the shape of an email from Stewart Regan CEO of the SFA who thanked us for the input. Of course there are massive mountains to climb before fan engagement can been seen as an automatic process before decisions are made at Hampden; but at least this “one small step” moment for fans shows that there is an opportunity to change the excepted normal conventions of what is accepted as to how the game is run.
A meeting will be scheduled with both the SPFL and the SFA CEO’s in the coming weeks and we will report back to our members on these discussions.
