The Big Bath City Bid supported the club’s annual Community Day fixture on 20 Feb vs St Alban's by sponsoring the performance of Horning Glory, a New Orleans-style brass band, before the match. Horning Glory have regularly performed at the Rec before rugby games and added a bit of atmosphere and pizzaz to this special day for Bath City FC and the local community.
The Bid team has met in recent weeks to provisionally assign responsibilities for an interim Board and management structure in the event of a successful conversion to community ownership. This will help to ensure a smooth transition from the current structure, ahead of the new community club’s first Board elections.
We have made good progress with most existing roles and responsibilities covered so far, but encourage anyone with relevant skills and experience – particularly, anyone with bookkeeping or legal/company secretary experience - to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bid representatives Ken Loach and Steve Bradley met with Supporters Direct in early February to review the current situation and seek advice on matters related to the community share offer and emerging redevelopment plans.
Supporters Direct exists to help supporters gain influence in the running and ownership of their club, including training supporters to serve as club directors. We continue to be grateful for all of SD’s support in our community ownership bid - to learn more, please visit www.supporters-direct.org.
The Big Bath City Bid team congratulates Gary Owers on being appointed manager of Bath City for the second time. Four points from his first two games in charge is a really positive start and we wish Gary the best of luck in revitalizing the team’s fortunes.
We also thank departing manager and director of football Lee Howells and Adie Britton for all they have achieved with the club and for offering support and guidance to the Bid team throughout last year.
