You may have seen yesterday that we asked both the club and the OEC for a progress report on the North Stand.
Fans are no doubt aware that the stand has been shut since January 2020 and as a result, fans have not been able to use these facilities on a match day.
We have received a response from both parties, with the OEC stating the following “Very recently we have been approached by the club. The talks have been positive and with collaboration firmly at the forefront, it’s very pleasing that our proposed agreement originally from December 2019 has been the focus”.
Club CEO, Karl Evans also reiterated this message that talks had been positive to date.
We hope that further information will follow before the Newport game so that supporters can be fully kept in the loop and for those wanting to attend home games they have the option of the North Stand to sit in once again. We will certainly keep pushing for swift result on this matter, given how close we are to the start of the season. The signing of the SLA is the least fans deserve.
Karl was also keen to stress that following the allegations of racist remarks made to a director, that investigations were still ongoing with GMP and an update will follow in due course. Should the allegation be proven we would expect swift movement by GMP over the matter. PTB would also like to reiterate that any form of racist or hateful remarks are completely unacceptable and we would encourage supporters to call this out if they see or hear anything.
There are a number of issues at the club that currently need addressing as well as ongoing PTB work, we hope to provide a more substantial update in the not too distant future.
If any fans have queries over any of the above, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
