Regarding the Future

8 years ago

The final hearing is drawing closer, but with hope this may not be the end.

"My true intentions for the club are clear, they are the same intentions as many including Mannix and Collin who work so hard for the U18s team- we don't the dust to settle.

For now plans are only plans, but Gavin Axcell, who has been involved with managing Romford FC and assisted with Tiptree has shown intent on helping the club in it's bid for revival. Steve Wheeler, another succesful manager who managed Tiptree along with Gavin could also be ready to help.
This is great news and shows that Leyton are still significant, I am currently asking local businesses for help, as somewhere there is bound to be a local businesswoman or businessman who has a passion for football and the community.

The more businesses who can kindly help the club's future, the easier the load for everybody and the more likely it will be to progress.
With a clean slate financially we can think about rebuilding the club, which Gavin has offered to do, no matter what budget.

Along with local businesses Gavin and myself are keen to help disadvantaged local children and young people, by doing so we can build relationships beyond football and give a future to those who have been unfortunate whether through where they live, a disability or through unemployment.

These plans are just a frame, if you have any ideas- local business contacts, fundraisers etc then please share them in the new forum post and who knows, maybe life can continue for Leyton!"

Where next?
