I just don't understand the angle you are coming from here? The focus isn't right...
1. Why haven't they moved the Club on, so pro-full time football can be delivered?
The reply was that this is the first time that they have interest from credible parties, who all have the financial capability and proof of funds. There are 3 parties, but none has submitted a bid so far. The buyers are dictating the timescale.
2. Involving a supporter's representative or a Co Op board representative that can report back.
The Club have said the Co-op - as a shareholder, will be involved when negotations are at an advanced stage. To date no bids have been submitted.
I will ask whether the Co-op can meet interested parties at an earlier stage.
3.Should they express a desire to remain and not sell, they commit to provide a full time structure, which is properly funded.
A desire to remain wasn't expressed, but they did stress that they wanted to ensure the stability and future wellbeing of the Club and EP.
They have said we will become full time next season and the shareholders will underwrite losses between £50k to £100k.
I take this to mean that they won't be funding a £700k to £800k budget that Harrogate and Salford are rumoured to have spent to achieve promotion.
Steve, ask the owners to personally answer your questions directly, if you don't want to take the answers provided in the minutes or what I have written here.
If you ask me, our focus and energy should be on ensuring there are no barriers to prevent a new investor coming on board...
