From several sources that were at the meeting DiggerDagger has gathered the following.
Before the meeting started John Goodwin asked that John Still and Mr Tamplin's family left the room as they were not members. John Still addressed the meeting and offered his own support for Mr Tamplin's offer and in the end stayed for the rest of the meeting.
The Chairman was to be asked to vacate the chair as he had a conflict. When suggested Steve Thompson took over this was also rejected and in the end Paul Gwinn took the chair.
When he got his opportunity to speak, Glenn Tamplin stated that the club has serious financial problems and without additional external funds it would not last the season.
This is of course in direct conflict to the MD's public comments that there is no immediate issue and the club does not necessarily need investment to survive. This has been in writing and of course he is heard on the Time FM interview denying any major financial problems.
Mr Tamplin also stated that he has offered a £200,000 unconditional donation to the club whatever the outcome of the current process. Our source stated he heard that this was going straight into the playing budget and was behind the recent signings. It is unclear whether this money has actually been paid yet which is a potential concern if it is already effectively spent.
Having spoken to the site last week, I approached John East for comment, and he stated, "The outcome of the meeting is it was suggested that the Tamplin group, which includes Dave Bennett and Chris Smythe, and our consortium get together to see if they can structure a deal and work together for the benefit of the club and we will be meeting shortly to see if there is common ground."
John clearly reads the forum as he also added, "The comments that have been made that the various parties have gone from being at each otherís throats to suddenly being best friends stung a little. This is not about personalities Ė itís all about the club Ė and if we can come together in the best interests of the club in a way that leaves everyone feeling OK about it, thatís worth trying to achieve, isnít it?"
