Update from the chairman

Recommended Posts


I like the idea of finally utilising the corners for advertising space and office space that's additional funds for the club and addresses the issue of the open corners , also like the appointment of a media manager should make the communication better all a positive move

Any ideas no matter how small that bring in extra revenue for the club can only be a positive thing

Absolutely mate. I just find it refreshing to get an update from the club on the sort of things they are doing behind the scenes, and I really hope it continues!

Any idea where the coffee shop would be? Great news regarding filling one of the corners with office space, I'm guessing this will be either the South East or South West. On the advertising front, I wonder if this will utilise the other corner at the south end of the stadium.

Interesting comments regarding JD and the 1877 too.

We have been crying out for this statement and these ideas for years.

Brilliant to hear the plans and vision by Scott.

Not sure about the viability of a coffee shop, but you have to admire the ambition.

Its very encouraging to read this statement, but the test will be just how long this level of communication will be sustained.

I seem to recall previous promises to engage with the supporters that dissipated all too soon. Hopefully, the new regime, and the imperative to keep those signed up to the fan ownership ideal, will ensure that history is not repeated.

Not wishing to be cynical, though. Positive stuff, and long may it continue!

Agree with all of this. Whilst I think personally the coffee shop idea is barking I'm really pleased to see us thinking about new ideas, and if it happens then I'll try and use it if and when I can.

I'm really hopeful Gordon will do these updates once a month as I think it makes a real difference to the link between board and fans.

I guess not every month is going to be as easy as this one but there is always something happening that can be discussed you would think !?

Maybe a coffee shop is not barking. There is an industrial estate across the road with few facilities. There will be a range of visitors to the stadium either on St Mirren business or car parking business. And of course community activities. Hopefully it will be a success. I'll certainly buy a coffee there on match days as I am usually at the stadium pretty early.

I didn't think a coffee shop in Elderslie would take off

It has been a huge success and from the boy who owns it told me Fitzy and GLS were in the shop enquiring the ins and outs of the business



I think if it was going to happen and be successful it would need to be a concession run by people already in the business.

The club couldn't surely consider opening a coffee shop and running it themselves, that would be mental??

The Saporito boys would be my first port of call if I was Gordon!

This exactly  And if there's plans to put offices in as well then even better. 

Div may well think it's barking, but I was at Straiton Retail Park this afternoon. Try counting the number of coffee outlets there. I gave up once I'd got to 10. Two Costa Coffee shops are actually situated next door to each other - one in a stand alone unit and the other as part of the large Next store next door and both were absolutely rammed full with little room to move never mind get a spare seat at 2pm this afternoon. 

If there is enough footfall in the area then a decent coffee shop will make a load of money. Giving that away would be bonkers. 

I wonder if they'll look at the showers facility idea that I noticed at that Manchester Airport Car Parking facility earlier too. Div thought that was barking as well but his opinion clearly isn't worth a f**k :P

Yep good point if there's going to be offices within the stadium then coffee shop perhaps underneath the offices would make perfect sense , doing take aways would also make sense given the number of industrial estates nearby I'm positive it would be a profitable venture

I'm sure a lot of fans would utilise on match day aswell , I know personally as I travel through from the east I would much rather give my money to St. Mirren than a another cafe/restaurant in the city centre

Another idea ( they have this inside one of the stand in Livingston ) is incorporating a gym /fitness centre into one of the stands perhaps with a discounted membership rate for supporters ? In sure a lot of fans and non fans would take this up
