Accrington Chairman Shares Messages Exchanged With Burgess Ahead of Town Move
Thursday, 7th Oct 2021 15:10

Accrington Stanley chairman Andy Holt has shared messages he exchanged with centre-half Cameron Burgess prior to his move to the Blues and given his assessment of dealing with Town’s new ownership.

Holt had been tweeting about agents and his approach to allowing his club's players to move on and positively cited Burgess and his representative.

The Stanley owner was subsequently asked his opinion on dealing with Blues CEO Mark Ashton during the deal which saw the Australian U23 international join Town, which is understood to have yielded his club £750,000.

How weird is this? He's made himself look a bit of a muppet old "I'm on the beers" Holty. Reminds me of David Brent!

No one will ever trust him to be confidential. What a shocking businessman. Really, really poor.

But human?

I don't agree. It's transparent, amusing and he has not let anyone down with his revelations. I think he's a refreshing change to most chairmen out there.

Yep , it’s good!

It's harmless. Positive messages, affectionate, respectful, if a little unprofessional. Nothing negative and shows friendly relations between the chairmen. It's a fun way of wishing the player well after a move. There have been so many stories about moves that went roughly, nice to hear about one that went well.

Been following ITFC for 50 years and never felt so engaged and optimistic

Imagine what John Cobbold would have been like on social media. This is very tame stuff!

Why pass judgement, this is an honest man sharing his thoughts.

The thing I take away from this, is how bad must agents/clubs be to deal with generally for this to warrant going public! Either way, kudos to Mr Ashton and this bodes will for our near future and the signings we will need to make to reach the next level.

Good stuff. Puts Portsmouth’s whinging into perspective.
