This is the final article looking back at the Supporters Direct organised Midlands Regional Conference which was held at the Walkers Stadium during July.
The closing debate focused on clubs in the community with particular emphasis on how we identify our ‘community’ and then how we interact with it. Chaired by Chris Egerton of BBC Radio Leicester, the following personnel were on the debating panel:
David Taylor – MP for North West Leicestershire AND Foxes Trust Member, Brian Burgess – Bees United & Brentford FC, Darren Bernstein – Football League, Dave Boyle – Deputy Chief Executive of Supporters Direct, and our very own Craig White – LCFC Football in the Community Officer*
* – Many thanks to Craig who postponed his holiday by one day in order to attend
Again lessons were learnt and healthy debate between the panel and delegates took place.
