Renfrewshire Greens Event

SMiSA featured in a recent public meeting which discussed how fan ownership might work for St. Mirren.
Committee member David Nicol joined a panel including Saints legend Tony Fitzpatrick in the Wynd Centre in Paisley for the event, hosted by the Renfrewshire branch of the Scottish Green Party under the banner of FansFirst. 
Club chairman Stewart Gilmour had been due to appear at the event, but had to pull out.
Dave provided an update on trust activities and on the status of the ongoing discussions around a possible joint bid with former St. Mirren director Gordon Scott for the controlling interest in the club held by the consortium.
He also fielded several questions from Saints fans in the crowd about how the bid and a fan-owned St. Mirren might work, which led to some lively discussion.
Our thanks go to the organisers for inviting us to take part and to all the Saints fans who contributed on the night - should our proposed bid for the club move forward we would look to host similar events of our own in the future.
