Not sure what his remuneration package is though? or will he be the same as the existing board members.

His experience would be invaluable to the club I feel, welcome aboard.

I see Mr Dunford is a director and that another new appointment is recorded at Companies House, Kevin Norris is a director as of 11/1/17.
That was kept quiet.

No problem either, just seems odd that not public.
He was a captain and director up until 2015.



Play fair and by the rules

So the owners that said they wanted a fresh start have appointed someone who was a director during the mess that the club got into between 2013-2015. That board took the loan out that caused the club to go into administration.

Kevin Norris must have something to add to the mix, I guess.

Not d sure guest22 is correct. There was a loan but I understood that it was underwritten by personal guarantees which were honoured. I could be way off of course.

As far as I understand Kevin Norris was director in charge of rugby during Shanahans reign which proved disastorous and which put the club on the brink.
The guarantors of the loan refused to pay up which caused the club to go into administration.
I dont think anyone associated with what happened in 2015 that loan or any of those guarantors should be on the board now. it just does not look right.

Well, I sit corrected. Clearly, guest22, you have much closer connections to those days and those folk than have I.

That's it guest 22 look on the negative side, isn't it time to put the past behind us and move forward.
There's always someone to find fault, look on it as positive news for the club. Stop dragging up the past it does no one any good.
Onward & upwards (hopefully)!

Guest22 get a life and let's move on. You are talking of water under the bridge.
One man cannot be responsible for what on then. the RFU made rules made it impossible for GoD to carry on so now let's leave it at that.

There was nothing in the rules that said Graham Dawe could not continue to coach the team but it is not about that. I just dont think it helps the club reappointing a board member who was associated with what happened in the 2014-15 season. lots of people lost money and the new owners promised a fresh start. like I said I personally dont think anyone associated with what happened in 2015 taking that loan or any of those guarantors for that loan who refused to pay it back should be on the board now. im entitled to an opinion just like any fan.

The club were keen to publicise Michael Dunfords arrival but havent mentioned his resignation on the website or what is happening in terms of who will take on his role.

It appears he may well have left earlier than people say.
He is shown as resigned on 19th February.

Looks like the reason he left has surfaced ITV Sport if true when do the staff leave? Who will be running the club going forward for weddings, matches etc

This appears to be an exercise in thinning out the payroll after buying an organisation that is over-staffed or has the wrong mix of skills/experience/posts. The slate is wiped clean as all posts are made redundant. Then ex-staff and outside candidates are invited to apply for new roles in a slimmed down/new structure.

Tough on long-serving employees and with a demanding learning curve for new starts or "returners". It's legal and designed to re-focus an organisation, but it's a hard process. I imagine it's timed to finish the season with current staff in place more or less and then evolve over the summer to be in place come the start of 2017/18. But with a number of functions booked over the off-season and the re-furb of the Clubhouse, Brickfields will be a challenging place to work over the next six months or so.

Anyone who stays on must be feeling that the beatings will continue until morale improves...

This is wrong, however "standard practice" it might be.

People are not assets, they are people, and need to be treated with respect at all times.

Also, at places like Albion, they are generally not there "for the money", but because they have a love for the club. Why put them through this miserable process? Why not simply address the problem areas and if a few people have to go then do it directly, but with compassion. People are not numbers. Treat them as they are, and you won't get the best.

Most of the staff seem new anyway. I dont think many stayed from the takeover. The club are going to find it hard to attract good people to the club with these type of practices and with people like Michael Dunford criticising them.

A case of "wait and see" perhaps.

Some of the catering/backroom staff have already left. Saturday may the last chance to see some familiar faces. And still uncertainty for others still in post and working hard, regardless.
