Today we have received a couple of questions regarding a recent press release in the Basingstoke Gazette. Acting chairman, Kevin White, wanted to add a little meat to the bones of the comment taken from an earlier release of our own.
“The Gazette have done an unbelievable job in raising the profile of the Camrose scandal” Kevin White commented “the fact they have been shortlisted in the British Journalism Awards for their investigation is further testament to that. The recent article talked about my own personal love of wanting to return to our old ground. As a Club, we’ve also made that position clear on a number of occasions. However, I think the emphasised use of ‘but’ when commenting on an ‘uphill battle’ has been lost a little bit in translation to some who have expressed concern.”
“Yes – I believe there is an uphill battle ahead of us, I think that goes without saying. But that does not deter us – it just means that we have to arm ourselves with very tools that can allow us to make it happen. It’s going to be a huge ask – but this town has proven time and time again, that when the chips are stacked against us and even being dealt a bad hand – as a community, we find a way”.
“We look forward to working with the council and other representatives to ensure that the future of this club is protected.”
We will continue to keep everyone updated with progress, meetings and ongoing work.
