Kings elect new committee
THE Tweed Valley Kings have held court and elected the new committee that shall lead the club through the 2010 Gold Coast Soccer Premier League season.
Incumbent president Christopher Davis was re-elected to the top job with Jeay Love named as senior vice president.
Todd Perkins was elected treasurer while Milton Pollock was named secretary, Roslyn Pollock purchasing officer, Fab Dalton the marketing and sponsorship manager and Belinda Dawney was elected the social function coordinator.
Davis said the Annual General Meeting (AGM) was particularly well attended, as all involved with the amalgamated club that made its debut this season; strive to move the club forward.
“Every committee position was contested and filled,” Davis said.
“The AGM was the best attended meeting all year.
“The vibe of the meeting has left me feeling very positive.”
Last season was a huge learning curve for the Kings and Davis is adamant they have learnt their lessons well.
“The Kings have matured from their inaugural experiences last year,” he said.
“We are not the same club we were this time last year.
“I think we will pleasantly surprise Tweed football fans both on and off the park.’
Representative of the entire Tweed region, the Kings’ primary aim is to provide all players from the area with a clearly defined development pathway from grassroots football to the Premier League competition, promoting the game of football at all levels within the Tweed Valley.
“One of the Kings’ goals is to open the concept up to all Tweed clubs so all players have the same opportunities,” Davis said.
“We will seek opinions from Tweed clubs and welcome their input.”
Pollock said it was important for supporters to get behind the fledgling entity and help the Kings become the successful establishment local football needs.
“We are not only a Premier League football club, we are a Tweed Valley not-for-profit, development organisation, creating opportunities for the youth of the area,” he said.
“We are seeking like-minded members of the public, football clubs, business, and sponsors to help us further the concept.”
