Milne, O'Neill and Klug But Not McCarthy at PLC AGM
Saturday, 18th Nov 2017 10:24

Managing director Ian Milne and academy duo Lee O’Neill and Bryan Klug will answer questions from shareholders at the Annual General Meeting of the Ipswich Town PLC, which will take place in Portman Road's Sir Bobby Robson Suite on Monday 11th December it has been announced (doors open 6.30pm, start 7.30pm).

In a letter to shareholders PLC chairman Roger Finbow writes: “Ian Milne, the club’s managing director, will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

“Mick McCarthy is unfortunately not able to attend this year, but Lee O’Neill, the academy manager, Bryan Klug, head of coaching and player development, and other academy representatives will also be present to answer your questions about the academy and the increasing flow of talented boys now being prepared for the first team.”

He added: “Nothing gives me - and I suspect many shareholders - more pleasure than seeing ‘one of our own’ make a first-team debut and thereafter establish himself in our first-team squad.

“Last year I mentioned Myles Kenlock, Josh Emmanuel, Andre Dozzell and Ben Morris as those likely to make their mark in the coming year.

"I made no mention of Flynn Downes, Tristan Nydam and Luke Woolfenden, all of whom are now, along with those of last year, building up strong reputations for themselves as exciting young players who we hope will form the nucleus of success for the club in the years to come.

“And thinking about the performance of the young team that faced Crystal Palace in the Carabao Cup, that hope and expectation is surely not misplaced. The future looks bright, as I’m sure Lee O’Neill and Bryan Klug will be happy to confirm.”

The PLC owns 12.5 per cent of Ipswich Town Football Club Co Limited and consists of the club's shareholding prior to the takeover nine years ago with Marcus Evans owning the other 87.5 per cent. The meeting is open only to shareholders or their proxies.

In addition to the PLC’s own accounts, shareholders are also provided with a summary of the club's accounts for the year to the end of June, which will also be posted on the official website.

Milne, O’Neill and Klug also recently answered questions from fans at the Supporters Club AGM.

Milne out

McCarthy out. Doesn’t matter about Milne. He is completely meaningless. Klug to take the reigns with Burley advising him. Youth set up is great and the youth will get a game with Klug in charge.

Spot on smellmycheese....under McCarthy young players don't make their mark but become bit part players.Name me one young player who has established himself under him since Nov 2012....that's right no one.On the contrary, the better ones i.e Emmanuel get sent out to make way for older inferior players like Iofa. He simply doesn't believe in them longterm and his reputation at the club is that of someone who effectively talks them up but doesn't play them long term. Now with Burley it was another story and Klug plays the Ipswich way too unlike our tactical genius of a manager

Perhaps McCarthy knows that he would be asked that type of question and decided to keep away.

smellmycheese added 14:38 - Nov 18
Oldegold; agree with every word.
And yes Carlisle, Mick knows he will be asked about his position and lack of new contract and doesn’t want to answer.
Please God: no contract extension.

No ME either? That,s a shock

Marcus Evans absence is no surprise to me as he never attends any events,not even the AGM.How many Chairman deem it not necessary to attend a Clubs/Company's AGM;and please do not tell me that he is not the Chairman of the PLC,,only the football club.A set up which no doubt suits the Owner,probably for tax reasons.

I say this as his companies are domiciled in Eire,and his personal tax is levied in a tax haven I understand ?

With neither McCarthy or Evans attending the supporters AGM either(1st time for Manager non-attendance) shows how little respect both have for this football club.

I hope someones asks Klugif he would be willing to take on the managers job alongside Gerard Nash .Klug is our future with all his coaching know how.I am sure the fans would be back in droves if it happens !

So will someone explain the point of these meetings? As it will be a crowd of handpicked fans that will say nothing to offend anybody with questions they ask or ask about the root problems that are set in at the club now? Answer total waste of time!!!

dukey44...I totally get your point in general the case of the AGM of the PLC...each shareholder (people not chosen by the hierachy) is entitled to's not a big say in relation to the whole of the club but it might be important now and/or in the future.

verulam added 13:25 - Nov 20
dukey44 - please don't belittle us shareholders of Ipswich Town plc. Back in February 2004 it was us (supporters from all walks of life) who dug deep into our pockets to keep this Club from going under. In my case it was £500. The shares have no value but we are still proud of what we did. Permit us our one meeting a year!
