McCarthy and Clegg at PLC AGM
Monday, 19th Nov 2012 12:13
Manager Mick McCarthy and chief executive Simon Clegg will answer shareholders’ questions at this year’s PLC AGM, which will take place on December 11th in the Sir Bobby Robson Suite in the Sir Alf Ramsey Stand (7.30pm). The meeting is open only to shareholders or their proxies.
The PLC owns 12.5% of Town and consists of the club's shareholding prior to Marcus Evans's takeover five years ago.
In a letter to shareholders, new PLC chairman and former club director Roger Finbow paid tribute to his predecessor David Sheepshanks, who stood down as chairman and as a director of the PLC in August, ending his formal ties with the Blues: “David provided inspirational leadership in both good and less good times; he brought to the club the benefits of his considerable football wisdom; he knew when to offer guidance to the manager whilst avoiding being an interfering chairman; and he was always accessible and approachable by supporters.
“Our loss is [the National Football Centre at] St George’s Park’s gain, but we should all feel proud that for the third time this club has been able to provide someone to take up a position of leadership within the English FA.”
The meeting will vote on the re-elections of John Kerr and Simon Clegg and the election of Supporters Club chair Elizabeth Edwards as directors of the PLC.
We understand that details of the club accounts for the year ending June 2012 are expected to be announced in time for discussion at the meeting.

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.
The Question We're All Asking: Is Relegation a Serious Possibility? by Superfrans
With a pretty horrible run of five matches coming up, I know I’m not the only fan to have serious concerns about the possibility of relegation.
Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
The Rebuild Conundrum and Inevitable Humdrum by BaltachaFanClub
