Ebbs CEO Resigns

Recommended Posts

Statement from the MyFC Society Board.

 

Early evening on Monday, the MyFC Society board were informed by the CEO of Ebbsfleet United, Mr David Davis that he wished to resign from the position of CEO. David has requested that the reasons for his decision remain confidential and the Society Board intend to honour his request and support his decision to resign. The Board thank him for what he has done for the club and the society in the last challenging year. He has agreed to help in a smooth hand over of his responsibilities to his successor.

 

The MyFC Society board recognised that at this time in the Fleets history where important decisions have to be made by members with guidance from the club, a decision had to be made as promptly as possible for his successor. After a lengthy discussion, the MyFC board decided by a majority decision of 6 to 1 to ask the Chairman of Ebbsfleet United Mr John Moules to take over the additional work of the CEO with immediate effect. This situation is for an interim period

of 3 months to see how events shape up at the club.

 

The appointment is dependant on one very important decision. We wish this decision to be voted on by the membership of MyFC, so you will soon be asked to ratify the decision if you wish. The vote will be a fast 24 hour vote so matters can be dealt with asap and we can move on. The MyFC board hopes that you will support this decision.

 

 

The MyFC Society Board.

IMO events will shape up at the club meaning part time players and there will be no money for Moules and probably no-one else (groundsman excepted) as well.

As it is hard to identify exactly DD's achievements, I don't feel his resignation will make a lot of difference. The question is why. Is BK about to take over?

I'm totally neutral as far as the club is concerned.

I just don't like to see any football club ruined because of money or personal politics.

What decision exactly has been ratified Sal? That MYFC accept his decision and for John Moules to step in for the next 3 months while a democratic vote takes place on his successor?

So, was his resignation bad for Ebbsfleet FC from a local supporters point of view? If we don't ask the question, we won't know the answer...

Yes Jane, the decision to appoint Mr Moules in the interim has been ratified. These were the votes (out of a total voting membership of about 9,600, less than 700 people voted):

 

Yes : 583

No : 61

I abstain : 24

Of course, there is no mention in the official statement of any further vote, Jane. It's 3 months "to see how events shape up at the club" ... whatever that means achso

Bad thing.

DD brought a lot of business acumen to the club, tightened things which were "slack" and was very approachable, as evidenced by his contributions on the official site.

I wonder whether JM can cover both jobs adequately?

are you fckn serious....?

he did fck all except get rid of the profits from the food outlets and get aero into the tea bar...the losses are the same as they were at 60k per month and the club is on the verge of extinction....

he failed to deal with the interference from paddington and failed to deal with the interference from daish...in fact he failed all around.....

one point worth thinking about as well....he obviously knew what plan B was and didn't like it...

Possibly, though I'd guess the straw on the camel's back was the row over the admission prices vote. (See Loosely's thread on Roly's take on this.)

I find that rather worrying, if the figures are correct.

Approx 7.5 % of the membership bother to vote !

Apathy ?

Lack of communication ?

Massaged figures ?

Again - I'm not having a dig or a snipe. I find it hard to believe that in a free-vote, the 'turn-out' is less than in a general or local electionm !

Is this the 'Wisdom of the Crowd', this whole set up was supposed to support?
The Wisdom of the Crowd was to walk away, at renewal time!

Just my little light-hearted joke, Chopper.

 

The matter of Ebbs was discussed in the bar at Meadiowbank on Saturday afternoon between myself and a fellow poster and supporter.

It has been many days since the resignation and not a word. If you are reading this David, frankly I am disappointed. The members and fans deserve better. You stood up and took the salary fast enough. IMO it would be at least polite to advise those paying your salary and trusting you to bring their club through the hard times, why you walked off the job without a word.

DD was an early member of the myfc society and along with many others embraced the ideals set up by paddington.....as most will tell us he was a decent bloke....

 

trouble is that running football clubs is a tough old business and beats people up....its a thankless task and I guess that the brave new paddington world was never going to work once the key players jumped the society ship and played at being abromovich...that started early on when the WT camped out at SR and DD was sucked into it all as well.....IMO he did nowt for the club really and also betrayed his fellow society members once he had his feet under the desk at SR....

 

it was a poor decision by paddington to offer DD the job in the first place and a poor decision by DD to accept it....but thats what football clubs can do to you.....it all seems like a good idea at the time...!

 

the mystery of his resignation and sudden disappearance remains and his lack of any statement at all is poor to say the least.
