Old Edwardians Football club is set to elect a new executive in the near future. The decision was taken at the last meeting of the club held last Saturday at the compound of St Edwards School Kingtom.
The meeting was organized by the St Edwards old boys association and supporters of the club where vital issues were discussed including the restructuring of the club by electing a new executive as the current executive has been in office for five years.
It was agreed that those who have worked to enhance the development of the club could be re-elected as the most important thing is to build a formidable club for the coming season.
Also the old Boys president Dr Dumubuya whose term in office as expired is also expected to step down before the elections in the Old Boys Association.
The reason for the election is to choose a new executive that would be able to change the status quo of the club after fighting relegation in the last three years. Old Edwardians FC has been a successful club in the eighties and nineties, but they have failed to live up to expectation in the last five years.
The current executive was unable to build a good team because the players they acquired in replacing the ones that left were not up to the task. The monies gain from the sale of players was not spent in the team and the supporters were angry and called for a new executive that will take the club back to it position amongst the elites in the country.
The information also revealed that the money collected during gate taking were not properly accounted for, that is why the team is unable to perform because of the constraint they undergo for equipment and salaries.
Another meeting has been slated for this coming Saturday at the May Park Grounds in Kingtom.
