Thanks to all Trust members who took part in the vote on the Rangers newco interest in joining the SFL, the results of whcih are as follows:
1) Direct entry into SFL 1 = 2%
2) Direct entry into SFL 3 = 23%
3) Consideration for admittance into SLF 3 if a vacancy exists, in competition with other eligible clubs who may also wish to seek admission, with the successful applicant being selected following a vote by member clubs = 70%
4) Reject Rangers newco admittance into the SFL =5%
Option 3 got the most support by a substantial majority. As we reported on Thursday, we carried out the consultation at short notice because at that time the BRFC board had planned to meet on Saturday prior to the home friendly against Hearts U20s. That game was subsequently called off due to the weather and the board has deferred its meeting until Tuesday 10th July.
The results of the Trust onsultation will be made known to the FC board, as promised, and will be asking them to take full account of the views expressed by you, our members, when they decide the best position for Berwick Rangers FC going forward. The SFL meeting to decide on Rangers’ status, in light of the SPL’s abdication of all responsibility for that decision, will take place at Hamden on Friday.
