Yet another reason to hate RBS.
Why don't the feckers just pay Accies the £836k out of the millions set aside for their PPI mis-selling.
Or take it from that bawbag Fred the Shreds pension fund.
I'm starting to hate RBS more than MFC.

Posted by John Brown (new Director) on LinkedIn:

I have sat with the Board of Directors and established the £1 million pound that was earmarked for 8 projects that have already
been given the green light to go ahead.

We have slightly stalled to see where and how we are going to raise the shortfall in these projects.

The shortfall between now and May is £495,685.

We will be looking at an extensive funding programme. Writing applications, running events, looking for sponsorship, donations from fans, individuals and businesses.

Building a brighter future for all our customers.

We will be naming all the projects and the funding that is required to suit the timescales of commitment.
Our first and Major project was the indoor pitch at the end of the stadium.
The cost is £348,000
We would like a main sponsor to name the indoor stadium after their business.
Accies are an approved Youth Academy alongside. Celtic, Rangers and Hearts.
We require the indoor stadium to continue our growth in our Youth Policy..

If you have any ideas who would like to sponsor this Youth Academy Arena. Please
contact me.


Any fundraisers that have good cause and looking to donate please contact me.

ceo@lifeskillscentres.com

Thanks for your continuous support.

Does anyone know anything about the fans group who put up the brilliant banner outside Morrisons and where they got the figure of £919,069 from?

So why does somebody interested in sponsoring Hamilton Accies FC, have to email someone at lifeskillscentres. Can't we even afford our own email addresses!!

IF I were interested in sponsoring, I would want any enquiry to be confidential within Hamilton Accies only. Who knows who else at lifeskillscentres has access to such information.

This is yet another example of the sheer amateurism that led to the loss of such a significant amount of money!

Don't blame RBS - blame the directors!

It looks like his personal business email address, as CEO of lifeskills. It’ll go directly to him, not readable by random lifeskills employees.

It’s more professional than putting out his own one eg johnbrown@outlook.co.uk and if he’s in charge of sponsorship then it’s him you want to speak to.

Admittedly he could have set up a new one, they’re free, but maybe he felt that would be more of a hassle.

Hopefully we get some major sponsorship to move things forward regarding the ‘dome’

A court case, however with the current predicament regarding monies, I don't think Hamilton would be willing to risk the cost of a lengthy case against RBS, which they will likely lose.

I don't see us going to court.

Looks to me like the Directors have written it off, and are covering the loss themselves, perhaps with extra help from John Brown's fundraising efforts. It's a big hit, but does signing a new Greek midfielder on an 18 month contract indicate it isn't as potentially damaging as we first feared?
