Fort William will approach the new season with renewed enthusiasm, after a behind-the-scenes reshuffle which will give manager Danny Conlon funds to strengthen his squad, http://www.hflhub.com can reveal.
A group of five prominent local businessmen were elected onto the Claggan Park board at last night’s AGM in a major restructure which will see Fort run as a community trust.
Ronnie MacLean was elected as the new chairman of the club, with Margaret Byron and Marie MacMillan remaining as secretary and treasurer respectively. Former chairman John Wattsman has also returned, this time as vice-chairman.
The running of the Lochaber side will now be split into two bodies. The five-man board - Stewart MacLean, Gerald MacIntyre, Drew Purdon, Stewart Leitch as well as current assistant manager Michael McEachan – will assume control of the financing of the club, and will aim to use their business acumen to source future funding.
