Alan Fraser away back on July 14th and Stuart McQuarrie on September 1st. Anyone know why and why the members haven't been informed? Will they need elections or an AGM to get replacements.

I wonder who Bisgrove is pretending he's talking to over the Castore failings then if another two of the board members aren't there?

That narrows it down the options significantly...

Secret vote in the lounge. Get your posts up quick, or miss out.

Stuart McQuarrie retired from his day job (Chaplain of Glasgow University) in August, so could be simply that he's got better things to do!
Alan Fraser lasted just five months. MacQuarrie hasn't resigned from other positions in voluntary organisations. Neither resignation notified to members.

Could be nothing in it where these 2 gents are concerned of course, but broadly there does seem to be a little loosening of the apparently tight relationship between Club 1872 leadership & Rangers Executives, as suggested by the recent Castore exchanges/non-exchanges.

Am not sure who to lose faith in first about it - Club 1872 or Rangers...

I was going to post similar.

suspect the good Rev is simply stepping back to enjoy his retirement
Really?
So The Rangers Daft Rev has retired and you don’t think it would be easier to spend some time on C1872?
It’s ok for C1872 to demand transparency from the club but they don’t give important info like 2 resignations any publicity?
Had Alan Fraser retired too?
Something’s not right here

The poster who was at the focus group has said Bisgrove didn’t say that, just that the board will be speaking to C1872 directly.

Yup. Club1872 have formerly had decent relations with the club, why the sudden change in attitude toward the club?
MYGERS is a dripping roast of continuous cash, c1872 is not takes a while to raise £1m and shares have to be issued.MG can raise that in a few months, and no real outlay from the club.

He said that the Board were already talking to them according to that screengrab which C1872 have denied

I thought it was clear but I was meaning Bisgrove / The Board as a collective (as in "The Club") as far as the club go when I was talking about engagement with c1872

Aye. Right.

not really sure why a few posters are being a bit snippy about this, as if it's not a perfectly legitimate question.

Both McQuarrie and Fraser stood for election 6 months ago, but have resigned very quickly. McQuarrie less of an issue, he had done a good spell, but Alan Fraser was appointed and quit over the space of 5 months. Is that not a reason to ask a question as to what happened?

It’s the same with all these things. If you have the support united behind the fans vehicle they hold the power and influence with the club. We don’t we’re a mess when it comes to this type of thing. Fundamentally you need a large subscription base per size of club. Hearts do but they are tiny as a club and it’s relatively easy to achieve by comparison.

disappointing but that’s the facts.

im glad we have genuine Rangers supporters in control for the first time since I can remember.

A lot of club 1872s former strength was based upon Dave Kings relationship with Chris Graham. Given that Kings left perhaps that's meant a change in relationship.
To be fair I'm not overly bothered, I look back on my time on the C1872 board as time wasted.
Why was it time wasted M10? What were the good and bad things about being on the Board of C1872?

It's the same people at c1872. I suspect the change of tone is to do with the Castore stuff. However they are there to hold the club to account and so far they are doing that.

Stuart Macquarrie has retired nothing more than that.
I nominated Stuart for 1872, he is one of the most decent human beings you could ever meet. I have known him for a long number of years, Cranhill boy. Without going into any details at this time, there is a lot more to it, He is still on a few Voluntary Boards
