30th Jul 2021

On today’s (Friday 30 July) Sports Hour 12 noon until 1.00pm as part of the Mike McLean show, Mike will be talking to the new Chairman of St Mirren Football Club, John Needham.

This, on the week that St Mirren became a fan-owned club and company.  New Chairman John Needham issued this statement, yesterday, 29 July 2021:

“I want to start by adding my support to the many accolades Gordon Scott rightly received yesterday. He has led the Club through a period of consistent and significant improvement and on to fan ownership. He should always be remembered for that.
Now that my appointment as Chairman has been announced I want all of our fans and everyone involved with the Club to be reassured that my priority is to build on the success that’s been achieved in recent years in conjunction with everyone involved with St Mirren. That will involve Directors, staff and most importantly our loyal and faithful fans.
The potential of our Club, with its proud history and community focus, is enormous.
As a lifelong fan, I am hugely honoured to have been given this opportunity and will do my utmost to repay the faith shown in me.”
