February update including Meet the Manager and £2 Spend results

We recently emailed members with a February update:


Meet-the-manager Zoom event


The new year is only a few weeks old but it’s already thrown up plenty of St Mirren-related talking points. And we are delighted to be able to give our members the chance to talk about them with Jim Goodwin, from the comfort of your own home, with our latest virtual manager Q&A.


Jim will be joined on the call by club chief exec Tony Fitzpatrick and SMISA’s two reps on the club board – David Riley and John Needham – to help answer any questions on off-field matters.


The call will take place on Monday 15 February at 7pm. As our Zoom account limits capacity to 100 we’d ask anyone who wants to join the call to book your place by logging in to Very Connect and going to the Events page.


We’ll send joining instructions and a meeting link to all confirmed attendees on the day itself. Please don’t book a place unless you plan to use it (or if you do book and can’t use it, let us know)


January £2 ballot results


Last month we put forward two possible projects for members to vote on in the latest £2 Spend ballot.


One was to provide new training kit for the St Mirren Women and Girls Academy at a cost of £3600, a figure that will include incorporating SMISA branding.


Those members who voted chose to support this overwhelmingly, with 522 (87%) voting in favour and 76 (13%) voting against. That financial support will now help provide tracksuits and training kit for around 60 players in their under-13 to under-17 squads.


The second project was to help provide the club with new camera and microphone equipment to help improve the quality of St Mirren TV at a total cost of £3400. Again, this proved popular with those members who voted, with 520 (87%) in favour and 78 (13%) voting against.


The next ballot will take place in April and anyone with any suggestions for potential projects should email [email protected]
