Iain, of course, stepped up to the plate some months back when there was a need for a steadying hand and a reassuring and respected figurehead to both steady the ship and to search and find a new crew to take what was undoubtedly a sinking ship to a safe haven.
That role now behind him and have been supportive of his role for the pivotal period of having the new ownership firmly in place, he’s of the opinion that its job done in that sense. An advocate that a clearing of the decks both on and off the pitch is likely a requisite strategy to take the club forward into a new era, his actions suggest that’s an affirmative.
Cutting the distinctive figure he does, frequently within ‘buying’ distance of the bar facilities we have great hopes that despite his retiring from the front line he will still appear frequently in that guise.
Iain McInnes added ‘ it was very much Iain’s passion, commitment, and integrity that proved to be a major consideration in my involvement at Gosport Boro’ despite the many and varied reasons for sensibly doing otherwise. I can only concur with Iain’s own feelings on just how time-consuming and taxing the role he occupied was and is notwithstanding the significant financial commitment that he was charged to find and now falls to me to provide.’
‘In a more light-hearted vein, I will (not sure it’s reciprocal) miss the leg pulling in abundance regarding his overt passion for Patrick Thistle along with his covert support of the Saints! Either way, I will miss his support and the club I’m sure his direct involvement’
Thanks for everything Iain and good luck in all you do in the future.
