Abuse risks Brightlingsea future warns chairman

Abuse risks Brightlingsea future – that’s right – chairman Terry Doherty has warned that the club’s future could be threatened if staff continue to suffer persistent abuse.

He explained in a Isthmian League club’s statement that long-serving defender Josh Gould’s dual-registration signing for FC Clacton is down to budget cuts.

Doherty said: “Long serving defender Josh Gould has signed for FC Clacton on a dual registration which means that he is still signed for the R’s at step 3 level.

“Officially he has not left the club and may still feature in manager Kem Izzets future plans, hence no big anouncement as yet.

“Budget cuts on the manager at the R’s have forced us to re- evaluate our position regarding playing staff.

“Any online abuse directed at my staff is wholly uncalled for and wholly unfair.”

“Unlike some of the players who are on £600 to £700 a month they do not earn a bean even though they put in twice as many hours into the club and are required to pay for their own travel and expenses. Players come and go, that is the nature of football nowadays but the staff remain out of loyalty.

“If I lose staff members due to abuse by key board warriors then I will be forced to seriously consider my own position and the current status of the club itself within the league structure.”

Fans were in complete agreement with the chairman who revealed that Abuse risks Brightlingsea future.
