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.

The End of the Eight by paulthebluealien
So, Town's rather heroic run of unbeaten games has come crashing to an end.
More Marmite than Marmite - an Evening with Roy Keane by Superfrans
Whether Roy Keane should go down in history as the worst manager to helm Ipswich Town is an arguable point - but it is hard to dispute that he is the most divisive Town employee in the club's 136-year history.
A Moment With Roy in Sainsbury's by TimS
It had been a relentless week at work with endless emails, continuous meetings and a phone that never stopped ringing. Come 5.15pm on Friday, I needed to do some shopping and I did not quite have the energy to drag myself around the aisles.
When The Keane Machine Broke Down by Pessimistic
The American journalist and satirist Ambrose Bierce once said that in each human heart there is a tiger, a pig, an ass and a nightingale and the diversity of character is due to their unequal activity. I suppose in the sad case of Roy Keane we were left with a bit of an ass who turned out to be pig ignorant!
