Dunfermline Athletic

Chairman`s Statement

Wednesday, 17th Jun 2020

A statement from DAFC Chairman Ross McArthur.

Once again, it is very disappointing that our club appears to have been conveniently targeted by those who wish to spread misinformation on social media. This has subsequently resulted in a number of things happening today which are extremely regrettable.

The DAFC Board were unanimous in voting in favour of both of the recent resolutions relating to reconstruction. We stated that we would support Ann Budge’s plan to increase the Premiership to 14 clubs, but the idea of having a 14-10-10-10 split would also allow the pyramid to be maintained, to allow our friends at Kelty Hearts, along with Brora Rangers to join the SPFL.

It was our view that this would provide the most equitable resolution to the issue of promotion and relegation, in the best interests of Scottish football. We were very surprised by the lack of support on Monday, but have to accept it is a members decision.

Despite what others might be trying to suggest, I have tried to be as supportive as I could be towards Ann, in a very challenging situation, and respectful of Heart of Midlothian as a football club.

Ross McArthur
Chairman
