Last week, a story appeared in the print and digital press regarding a proposed takeover of Albion Rovers FC from a consortium.
The timing of this information coming into public knowledge was clearly intended to fuel speculation and cause disruption during what is undoubtedly the club’s lowest point in our proud, long-standing history.
Let us be clear.
We did not, and will not, entertain the idea of Shamrock Rovers Coatbridge’ or indeed any other proposal in the future that steers us away from our identity.
It is evident, following on from the Albion Rovers Supporters’ Trust meeting last night, that the idea of any sort of name change or diversion from what we stand for is clearly unpopular and not sought after.
Our name and our values have been forged and maintained over a century.
We look forward to your support in the coming season.
The ARFC Board of Directors.
The board of directors would like to thank those supporters who came to the Supporters’ Trust meeting last night, and for taking the time to listen to our four representatives present.
We look forward to continuing to build a strong relationship with the Supporters’ Trust.
Manager Sandy Clark and his backroom team are well underway in their preparations for our upcoming The Park’s Motor Group Scottish Lowland Football League campaign.
We will update supporters with a squad/retained list when we are able to – negotiations with players are ongoing, this includes prospective players and a number of players who were part of this past season’s squad.
