Under fire Leighton Town chairman has questions to answer

Leighton Town chairman Richard Graham will answer questions from members next Monday evening (January 14) in an urgent meeting to discuss the club’s future.

The meeting has been called in light of the club’s worrying financial situation which has led to the management team leaving and first-team players not being paid for the last two months.

Graham, who was re-elected as Leighton Town chairman after a year in the job last summer, will be expected to announce his plan to get the Bell Close club out of its current predicament.

Graham has so far offered little explanation regarding Leighton’s financial difficulties and what he plans to do about it. However, he has been calling for the backing of the club’s members and fans.

Monday’s meeting, to be held at the club’s Bell Close ground at 8pm, has been greeted with scepticism by some because it is only open to Leighton members and not other fans.

It is not an extraordinary general meeting – at which the members would be able to pass a vote of no confidence – but it has still been described as extremely important to the club’s future.

Read what Graham has to say about the aims of the meeting in the January 8 issue of the Leighton Buzzard Observer.
