Everton supporters have formed a new protest group against the ownership of the club and will hold a public meeting on Saturday 8th August at the Taxi Club on Walton Lane, with the meeting set to commence at 11:30.
Everton Supporters Group To Hold First Public Meeting
Everton Board OUT are a group of disillusioned Evertonians concerned with the future of Everton Football Club.
Our aim is a simple one: We want the board of directors at Everton to step down from their positions and appoint an independent group of professionals tasked with selling the club.
The group will not shy away from the fact that we want the current directors gone and will seek to use various forms of direct action during match days both at Goodison Park and on the road in an effort to increase pressure and attract media attention to the club’s plight.
Chairman of the group, Anthony Scotland, said: “The current board have got off lightly with the Everton fanbase for years despite the numerous failures they have overseen and the lies they have told.
“They have not invested a single penny into the business for sixteen years, have overseen two failed ground moves, asset stripped the club and left Goodison Park to rot.
“We have called this meeting so that likeminded supporters can come together and share ideas with regards to future protests and demonstrations against the most unsuccessful board in Everton’s proud history.”
Scotland continued: “Bill Kenwright has allegedly been searching for investment and/or a buyer since the day he bought the club. He has quite clearly failed in this task.
We believe that Bill, Robert Earl and Jon Woods should recognise this fact and for the good of the club appoint an independent group of professionals that will undertake the identification and selection of potential buyers of the club who will oversee the sale to the potential owner who can best demonstrate the resources, ability and a genuine desire to take the club forward on both a commercial and football level.”
Everton Board OUT want to see Everton become the biggest club in Britain, competing regularly with the giants of European football.
We want to see Everton win multiple titles and forget Bill Kenwright and co and this unfortunate episode in our history ever existed. We believe the time has come for the sleeping giant that is Everton Football Club awoke from this dark slumber in our history.
