Federation AGM 2009
The Federation of Dundee United Supporters' Clubs held their AGM on Friday 28th August to form plans and objectives and to elect a new Executive Committee for the new season. Last term saw membership rise to a record 24 affiliated clubs and a further three clubs joined on the night, namely the Emerald Arabs (Ireland), Black Watch Arabs (3rd Battalion Royal Regiment of Scotland) and the `seemples` named Meerkcat Arabs.
Any pubs/clubs interested in becoming affiliated should contact Scott Foran for more information.
At committee level John Kettles (SAS), the long serving Neil Clark (East Angus), George Locke (Wee Jims TA) & Bryan Orr (Glenrothes) relinquished their positions and were thanked for all their efforts. Kara Griffiths (A90), Billy Hoon (0845 Arabs), Neil Jardine (FKTS), Mark McMahon (Arctic) and Paul Sheehan (SAS) were elected on to the new Executive to fill the quorum.
Member clubs voted unanimously to join the FSF (http://www.fsf.org.uk/) thus becoming the first Scottish supporters organisation to do so, with the body currently representing only English & Welsh fans. Hopefully many more Scottish groups will follow likewise to encourage more say on fan related matters across all the UK borders.
Re-elected Chairperson Shug Falconer (A90) closed the meeting by thanking all groups/individuals who contributed to the £1300 raised at last May`s Player of the Year function at Piperdam (with a special mention to The Cundeez whose superb set was volunteered fee free). This enabled all proceeds to be split between United for Kids and the Dundee United Youth Academy.
