Hi All,

It is with a heavy heart that I have handed over the baton of this great club! To move the club in the direction it needs to, I feel it would be best served with someone local and in touch with the Town, someone that can gain more commitment from the businesses of the town than I could. I came in during October and set out to make a contribution towards pulling the club through this season and beyond. We made significant in-roads to reducing the costs whilst making improvements to the ground and boosting morale. I cannot put in to words, my appreciation for the tireless work and commitment of the likes of Carly, Adam, Grimesy, Phil and Barry put into the Boro’ day in, day out. The club are very fortunate to have those people who continue to battle away and smile whilst doing it.

I have absolutely loved my time at the Boro’ and found myself becoming a passionate fan. I thank you, the Boro Faithful, who have shown me the upmost respect and support, I sincerely hope that the next plan comes to fruition as proposed and this club can be great again for you! I apologise for the on-field showings, as you guys deserve more, and it will get better I’m sure, although I haven’t quite given you the joys of watching the wins at Liberty Way we have had a club to cheer on at least!! I wish you every success in the immediate and long term and I will be watching the scores closely from now on as a willing fan! This will not be the last you see of me as I will be at the game Saturday to say thank yous and good byes to you all!

Once again, I hope you see the strides we have taken this year towards securing the future of the club. Thank you all.

#UTB #BackTheBoro

Best Wishes
Nick Hawkins

Am I reading too much into that and/or reading it the wrong way.
IMO, as an owner/chair of a football club his responsibility for on-the-field ends with appointing the manager (and setting budget which he never denied had to be reduced).

If no investment is forthcoming in the next few weeks, then administration could be the only viable option.
The National League may allow Boro to complete their fixtures as there's only 13 league games left to play.
Then enter administration at the end of the season.
Re-form next season but in a much lower league, Midland Football League Premier maybe?

Although the NL may give Boro until April as they will not want a club going under at such a late stage in the season.
The other teams would not be happy either as wins would be wiped from records!

IMO was never going to work.

If he was the best option in November, then clearly it was a low bar.

He didn't seem to have finances; he seemed to want to be involved/influence the playing side - certainly appointed the wrong manager in that case.

Just listened to some on radio and he confirmed Inland Revenue won't accept staggered payments - I am sure he said they had and I have no clue when this payments are from

Kept the club running for a few more months and if we get out of this who knows how important that may be .
IMO honestly believed he could run the club and wanted to make it work , but bite of more than he could chew .
Think he underestimated what's needed at this level on and off the pitch and didn't fully realise the extent of the clubs problems , also feel he believed it would be easier to get help ( financially ) from the town . For all that i believe he had the best interests of the club & fans at heart , but a football club at this level is a big boys toy for big boys with plenty of spare cash .

On the face of it, totally, as long as the share issue is done properly and they can satisfy their rules and governing bodies.
I think the only reason they won't will buy would be if way club did it made it impossible for them.

I thought shares, a place on the board and some influence was what co-op aimed for.
Personally i would pledge £50 a season to the co-op to achieve this if 199 others will.
Admit though that wont be easy.

I would rather someone who understands the coop rather than one that criticises because they will not just hand over more cash.
I would also want the fans rep to be focussed on the important issues, rather than ones that make good pics, and who made sure what they were saying was true.
And someone who doesn't slag off a whole family because two asked questions he didn't want asking.

But that's just me I guess.

We know more than we think is so often reversed by contributors on this forum - including myself. However, given the spin, half truths, inaccuracies, falsehoods and puerile social media tantrums, this is hardly surprising. You ate spot on. The purpose of the co-op is to represent the collective interests of its members and not a platform for individual egos.
This is not to decry the enthusiasm of NH, but the last few months have revealed that whatever he thought he could achieve was way beyond his means both financially and from a business perspective. It's hard to imagine what made him think he could achieve when he did due diligence - but then hubris is a powerful thing

as we know talk is cheap
saying and actually doing something is a different matter altogether
as for getting involved with fans on different media streams for me spelled the end
ref comment on (ego's) could not agree more but isn't it so often the way of the world

would B Bruce not be in the frame on this one

ps. im in the wings biding my time to see what comes to fruition
before any kind of commitment on my part

i have an idea of what i would contribute
bearing in mind its an annual subscription not a one off

im certain there will be other parties out there who are watching with interest

so many ways monies can be raised/ injected
the important part is that people are not supporting a dead duck

the club has to be sustainable long term on a realistic basis

short term has to be to clear the debts

hence the ten investors will be ( hopefully ) the cornerstone before the real work begins.
that has to be the start not the end

i think you might find quite a few people would be interested say on a grand a year scheme
only needs ten to take up a share. particularly with any advertisement included

No - his objective was to get the name back and it’s my opinion some of his views are akin to NH (ie - fantasy).

No problem with him as a person (or “presenter”)just don’t think would be right for that

Was that his only objective?

I thought he wanted coop to own club but he was thwarted by other stuff.

Depending who the co op put forward, I will chuck in . I thought NH , but there's issues according to Hulla . B . Bruce or Grimesy I would support. Just depends who they put forward for me.

We are waiting for the finer points, but the buying shares and putting someone forward to be a co-op/fan director are separate things at the minute.

yes think we can all see that Mark
the first ten have to be got on board to preserve the club
that has to be the priority
so as long as this target is achieved the co op and the rest can/could follow as and when

They are my issues with NH, no doubt far more people see him in a good light than a bad one, rightly or otherwise!

There is really only one person I would oppose being a coop rep, and I doubt I am alone in that too. Me!

Did not sound like you were agreeing with me at all, sorry I missed that.

The other 10 on the board will take the co-op seriously that if co-op not on an even footing with them.
I have doubts that the co-op will act quickly enough to get involved. (we'll see)

I can understand that, but the coop do a hell of a lot anyway (film games, improvements, run the 200 club to name a few) and that needs to be taken into account. Also it’s the supporters who provide a massive proportion on income.

not surprised if im honest, its been coming
think it became apparent the bloke had stepped out of his depth
you need more than just enthusiasm, he probably tried his best but came up short
we all make mistakes in life
no one is Mr Perfect...although one or two think they are
anyway he wont be the first and definitely not the last to misjudge what is needed
hopefully JG can come up with the backers

If he can’t its difficult to see who else would be able too, although in response to a fan who said we are f****d on Twitter NH did reply tonight “Not if the discussion I have had comes through “

If that is correct that's 60-70 k . That should be enough to clear debts and give us a clean slate . Just need to then run the club properly / within its means .

First four words are key.
And no way Coop could say yes so soon, too many hoops to jump through

Agree , but my general point is we probably don't need the full ten investors to keep the club running at this stage .
The problem would probably be would say 5 or 6 be willing to put their money in while waiting for the others to commit or be found .

If the bailiffs have been round visiting a couple of times as per some rumours then its probably gone from 6k-10k
