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.

An Uncomfortable Truth by TBT
The Marcus Evans group of companies numbers over 30 different organisations and having a lame duck subsidiary running at a loss has its merits in terms of taxation.
This Might Rub You Up the Wrong Way, it Might Not! by delias_cheesy_flaps
“What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up the stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him, and without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”
Identity Crisis by andygri
As someone born in the mid 1970s, I am part of the generation that has seen Ipswich Town Football Club move in and out of the footballing limelight over the last 40 years.
Pre-Derby Hope and Hype by TimS
I hate the phrase 'Old Farm derby'. There are plenty of patronising phrases that have, and are still thrown at me when I talk about our club, but the 'Old Farm derby' degenerates our derby into nothing more than a Country Show debate over who has the biggest tractor. Quaint, sweet but slightly pathetic, not understood by anyone outside East Anglia.

That game away at Bolton summed up in my view all that is wrong with Ipswich Town Football Club.
