Morton Club Together director, Aidan Tracey, has tendered his resignation from the board.
Current personal and family circumstances are taking up a considerable amount of his time, which sees him unable to commit the time he would like to as an MCT director to help move Morton forward and drive MCT into our new era as club owners.
Aidan provided the following for MCT members:
“Since becoming an MCT director I’ve come to realise that the level of commitment this position requires is something that I’m not able to commit to. I’d like to do it to the best of my ability but I know, with my current circumstances, I’m not able to do that.
I am in genuine awe of what has been achieved to date and want to thank the current and past directors for the commitment you’ve all put in over the past few years. I’m also incredibly grateful to those that nominated and voted for me to become an MCT director and hope they understand why I’m not able to continue in the role.
I remain fully behind MCT, and community ownership for Greenock Morton Football Club, and I can’t encourage members enough to continue to engage with your thoughts and questions.”
We are committed to providing opportunities for our members to contribute to our long-term vision of being regarded as the benchmark example of community ownership. As such, despite our articles not requiring us to do so, we will now be seeking to appoint a new director in place of Aidan.
Following the same format as our recent AGM, we are now inviting MCT members to put themselves forward for nomination, with voting taking place at an EGM, which we will confirm a date for in due course.
Prospective board members are required by our articles to have 12 MCT members nominate them to become a director.
If you would like to put yourself forward as an MCT director, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and advise individuals who will be nominating you that they are required to email the same address to confirm their nomination of you as a candidate, with the vote taking place at the EGM.
The deadline for nominees and for member nominations to be received is two weeks today, Thursday the 18th of November, 2021.
This is your chance to play an active role in the future of Morton Club Together and Greenock Morton Football Club. If you feel you have the time, commitment, desire and skills to contribute and move Morton forward then it’s time for you to step forward.
The Morton Club Together board wishes to place on record their sincere thanks to Aidan for his hard work as a member of our wider team and then subsequently his time as a director. We hope all members will do the same, while also respecting Aidan’s privacy at this time.
