Milne, O'Neill and Klug But Not McCarthy at PLC AGM
Saturday, 18th Nov 2017 10:24
Managing director Ian Milne and academy duo Lee O’Neill and Bryan Klug will answer questions from shareholders at the Annual General Meeting of the Ipswich Town PLC, which will take place in Portman Road's Sir Bobby Robson Suite on Monday 11th December it has been announced (doors open 6.30pm, start 7.30pm).
In a letter to shareholders PLC chairman Roger Finbow writes: “Ian Milne, the club’s managing director, will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
“Mick McCarthy is unfortunately not able to attend this year, but Lee O’Neill, the academy manager, Bryan Klug, head of coaching and player development, and other academy representatives will also be present to answer your questions about the academy and the increasing flow of talented boys now being prepared for the first team.”
He added: “Nothing gives me - and I suspect many shareholders - more pleasure than seeing ‘one of our own’ make a first-team debut and thereafter establish himself in our first-team squad.
“Last year I mentioned Myles Kenlock, Josh Emmanuel, Andre Dozzell and Ben Morris as those likely to make their mark in the coming year.
"I made no mention of Flynn Downes, Tristan Nydam and Luke Woolfenden, all of whom are now, along with those of last year, building up strong reputations for themselves as exciting young players who we hope will form the nucleus of success for the club in the years to come.
“And thinking about the performance of the young team that faced Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup, that hope and expectation is surely not misplaced. The future looks bright, as I’m sure Lee O’Neill and Bryan Klug will be happy to confirm.”
The PLC owns 12.5 per cent of Ipswich Town Football Club Co Limited and consists of the club's shareholding prior to the takeover nine years ago with Marcus Evans owning the other 87.5 per cent. The meeting is open only to shareholders or their proxies.
In addition to the PLC’s own accounts, shareholders are also provided with a summary of the club's accounts for the year to the end of June, which will also be posted on the official website.
Milne, O’Neill and Klug also recently answered questions from fans at the Supporters Club AGM.

A Driven Individual and - So Far - a Serial Winner by monty_radio
In such a day as this when allowing your new manager and regime 10 games is considered the height of patience and sense and, by some, lenient nonsense, Paul Hurst is naturally incurring fans' spoken and written doubts after seven - albeit with an unrecognisable team.
