One for Archant to pursue?

Recommended Posts

Localising Southampton a little more, did Neil Doncaster vote on the decision to dock Southampton -10.  When the first Board meeting was held did he declare an "interest" in that his club might be affected by any decision and what was the ruling on whether or not he was allowed to vote?

No hidden agenda.  It''s just a story idea.

[/quote]I read somewhere that those Board members with a special interest did not take part in the vote Cam. I assume that The Doomcaster was one of these.

The Board of the Football League made the decision yesterday but Canaries chief executive Neil Doncaster did not vote.

“As one of the three Championship clubs representatives on the Football League board I along with the others seven directors discussed the Southampton situation at length,” he said. “I declared an interest as is proper to do so and did not vote on the Southampton question.”

No, they are supposed to declare an interest and then the rest of the board decide whether they should be allowed to vote or not.  If it''s a tie Mawhinney has the casting vote.

[/quote]In any event, it appears that our man did not vote.

Not rocket science to work it out, it was a conflict of interests. I hope (and would expect) that all the other clubs at the foot of the championship abstained en-bloc.

What you might want to pursue is how the directors of other championships clubs new of the administration well in advance of the announcement and were lobbying for a penalty of more than ten points.

Here''s one for you then Cam...As Sheepshanks (cough, splutter) is no longer on the Ipswich board is he still involved on the FL and FA boards as a representative of the Championship until the end of the season or has his position been terminated on both those governng bodies with immediate effect?

Because (re Southampton)  it came out on an email long before it appeared on the Football League site.

I blame insolvency practitioners myself and their emails to City desks.[:D]

Fair enough.  It''s an advert.  The fact that the FL site can''t get their act together quickly is not their fault.

Sheepy is still a member of the FL board.

The others currently are:

Lord Mawhinney, former physicist with atomic leanings - Peterborough fan.  Or Bazza would put it: "That Macca. F*****g awesome brain, pardon my language, gal)

Ian Ritchie, the independent director but formerly a West Ham director and now CE of the All England Wimbledon thingy (new balls, please)

Terry Robinson, former chairman of Bury, later Sheffield United.  Also chairman of Ferencvaros, Hungary, which is owned by Sheffield United.

Peter Powell, Colchester United - senior partner in Ellisons, solicitors, and unsuccessfully trying to make a difference to Colchester since 1990.

Lorraine Rogers - specialist insolvency lawyer based in Liverpool, non exec chairman of Tranmere Rovers.  Pulling out of Tranmere at the end of this season "because I have got really tired of the aggro." (Nice bright girl, sorry Wiz).

Tony Kleanthous - our flagship Division 2 rep.  Youngest ever chairman in the FL when he bought Barnet (something he is still working on, I believe).  Also owns Barnet Cricket Club.  Telecoms man who bought out Ryman the stationers.  Thinks Premier League is strangling everyone outside it and writes about that if given a chance.

Neil Doncaster: CE of Norwich City, also a member of the Football Association board.  Joined Norwich as company secretary and solicitor in 1997 and promoted to his present position in 2001.  Or as Wikipedia might put it, citation needed.

[:D]

Amazing.

50% of this board has an East Anglian interest:

Ipswich

Norwich

Peterborough

Colchester

Now that''s a massive influence in general

[/quote]I''m well aware of who is currently on the FL and the FA board.What I was asking (bearing in mind your exclusive connections) was whether Mr Sheepshanks was STILL on the FL and FA boards or had until the close of the season to pack up his desk and take his cardboard box on to the pavement?
