"For a period of 10 days after the closure date for resolutions and members' votes, a standing subcommittee of members in conjunction with the Club Secretary and the board member for governance, will meet to consider the consolidation of all motions on a similar theme which if passed would negate each other. In doing so, the committee will seek agreement from all proposer signatories to the relevant motions.

Where agreement is gained, the original motions will be withdrawn with the consent of all proposers, and the consolidated motion will go forward to the General Meeting. A consolidated resolution or members' vote shall be treated as any other resolution or members' vote.

Where consent from all the proposers of motions subject to consolidating cannot be obtained, but there is a majority of the proposers in favour of consolidation, the motions will be consolidated.

The proposers supporting the consolidated motions will have their names removed from the original motions and appended to the consolidated motion.

Where a minority of the proposers of the motion so consolidated do not agree with this action, they may proceed with the motion in its original form, subject to the rule governing resolutions and members' votes i.e. that the motion is supported by a minimum of 5 members.

If no agreement on consolidation can be reached, the relevant motion or motions will proceed to the GM as originally drafted"

For 184 Against 114 Abstain 32

THIS RESOLUTION HAS NOT BEEN PASSED


GM 2016 25/05/2016

Please note that the Scrutineer specifically stated that abstentions should not be considered when determining the percentage of votes cast in favour or against any Resolution or Members' Vote. This was further checked with Co-ops UK who advised that since FC United's rules do not explicitly say that abstentions will be counted in the final total, an abstained vote does not count as a vote cast and so should not be counted when doing the percentage for and against.

Resolution 1

The Annual Business Plan should be approved by members by means of a vote before the end of the previous reporting period. If not voted in, a modified Plan should be developed taking into account members' input and concerns. Progress against the Plan should be reported on a quarterly basis to all members.

Specifically, that the Board can legally operate with any number from 2 members, up to a maximum of 11 - hence there being no need for members to vote for candidates they might not deem suitable in the event of a small field.

Resolution 3

The club's stated Election Policy - as published on the official website - includes the option "Re-open nominations" as an automatic entrant in all elections to the FC United Board. This Election Policy should be amended to hold that, where the candidate "Re-open nominations" scores a higher percentage of votes than other candidates with places on the Board still unfilled, those places will remain vacant until the following year's AGM (or until any interim EGM is called for the purpose of filling said places), as long as the Board remains properly constituted with at least two elected members.

Resolution 6

The Board should commission a review of the Broadhurst Park construction project as soon as possible. This should identify exactly what caused and contributed to the numerous delays and cost overruns, including to what degree these can be attributed to mistakes made by the club and its officials, as much as to what were accountable to outside contractors. With at least £1 million more needing to be spent to finish the ground it is important for everyone connected to FC United to understand where things went wrong so as to ensure any similar expensive mistakes are not repeated, and have confidence that club funds will be spent wisely in future.

Resolution 7

At the 2012 AGM, Resolution 2 was proposed by the Board.

The voting list will name all Board members alongside their individual votes." Since then not one vote has ever been taken, suggesting that every Board decision has been wholly unanimous. If this is the case then in future, where a vote is not taken and a decision is deemed to have been passed unanimously, the minutes should record that every Board member was in favour of that decision.

GM 2015 26/04/2015

Resolution 1

1a. FC does have, and should have, some ethical policies which direct our relationships with other organisations;

1b. FC should set these out for the guidance of staff, and others, who have to take decisions about who we work with and how we do so

1c. If the guidance is clear enough for FC employees to make the decision, they can decide to work with, or not work with, any particular organisation in whatever way is appropriate at that time

1d. If it is not clear enough to FC's management, or if any member raises an issue about any particular organisation formally in writing with reasons to the Board, then the matter should be considered by the Board, who can either agree themselves what course of action to take; alternatively the Board can refer the issue specifically to a Members Meeting for a show of hands vote, further guidance and/or a decision.

2. If this is process is agreed in principle, it is proposed that the Government policy of "Workfare" (requiring claimants to work for their Jobseekers Allowance) is unacceptable to FC United as an ethical issue.

3. If it is agreed that Workfare is against FC's ethical policies then any organisation with whom we currently have a working relationship and that we are aware is operating a Workfare contract should be asked to cease doing so immediately. Should they be unable or unwilling to do so then we will terminate our relationship with them.

Resolution 1 required a vote in favour of a simple majority of those Members who voted in person or by post and Resolution 1 was adopted.

  • That the composition of the board of the Facilities Company shall at all times be the same as that of the board of FC United Limited;
  • That the Facilities Company act at all times strictly in accordance with the Standing Orders and reporting requirements established by the FC United Limited board;
  • That the company may only operate under the terms of a binding Licence to be agreed with FC United Limited; and
  • That all annual accounts, financial statements and reports prepared by or on behalf of the Facilities Company are made available to members in advance of FC United Limited General Meetings, where members may scrutinise the company accounts and board.

Resolution 2

THAT: A new Rule 132 (Equal Opportunities and anti-discrimination) of the Club's Constitution be adopted, as follows:-

Anti-discrimination policy

1. All members are expected to abide by the requirements of the Equality Act 2010. Specifically discrimination is prohibited by:

  • Treating any individual on grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief1, gender or sexual orientation less favourably than others.
  • Expecting an individual solely on the grounds stated above to comply with requirement(s) for any reason whatsoever related to their membership, which are different from the requirements for others.
  • Imposing on an individual requirements which are in effect more onerous on that individual than they are on others. For example, this would include applying a condition which makes it more difficult for members of a particular race or sex to comply than others not of that race or sex.
  • Victimisation of an individual.
  • Harassment of an individual, by virtue of discrimination.
  • Any other act or omission of an act, which has as its effect the disadvantaging of a member against another, or others, purely on the above grounds. Thus, in all the Club's recruitment, selection, promotion and training processes, as well as disciplinary matters, it is essential that merit, experience, skills and temperament are considered as objectively as possible.

2. FC United of Manchester commits itself to the immediate investigation of any claims of discrimination on the above grounds and where such is found to be the case, a requirement that the practice cease forthwith, restitution of damage or loss (if necessary) and to the investigation of any member accused of discrimination.

3. Any member found guilty of discrimination will be instructed to desist forthwith. Since discrimination in its many forms is against the club's policy, any members offending will be dealt with under the disciplinary procedure.

4. FC United of Manchester commits itself to the disabled person whenever possible and will treat such members, in aspects of their recruitment and membership, in exactly the same manner as other members. The difficulties of their disablement permitting assistance will be given, wherever possible to ensure that disabled members are helped in gaining access. Appropriate training will be made to such members who request it.

For - 15.8%
Against - 76.7%
Abstain - 7.5%

Rule 29 requires the vote in favour of not less than two-thirds of Members voting at the AGM - therefore Resolution 2 is not passed.


Resolution 3

Should rule 132 (Equal Opportunities and anti-discrimination) be voted in to the club's constitution by members, it will be referenced in the seven core principles of our official club manifesto as follows (the added text is emboldened):

Seven core principles of how the club will operate are set out below, and once agreed by the membership, will be protected by all elected Board members:

  • The Board will be democratically elected by its members.
  • Decisions taken by the membership will be decided on a one member, one vote basis.
  • The club will develop strong links with the local community and strive to be accessible to all, discriminating against none (as per club rule 132 Equal opportunities and anti-discrimination).
  • The club will endeavour to make admission prices as affordable as possible, to as wide a constituency as possible.
  • The club will encourage young, local participation - playing and supporting - whenever possible.
  • The Board will strive wherever possible to avoid outright commercialism.
  • The club will remain a non-profit organisation.

Members' Vote

The club should launch a new home kit in time for the start of the season 2013-14.

Should the membership vote in favour of this resolution the club will generate a short list of no more than 4 potential shirt designs and circulate the designs amongst the membership as part of the advance notice of the spring general meeting.

At the spring general meeting a members vote shall then be held to determine which of the 4 circulated designs the club should proceed with. This vote should be held using the "alternative vote" system and each member should be given the opportunity to rank the designs in order of preference.

Should the membership vote against this resolution the club will not seek to launch a new home kit for the 2013-14 season.

Resolution 3

THAT: FC United of Manchester should always endeavour to ensure that supporters of visiting sides are offered fair treatment at all games hosted by the club. In particular FC United of Manchester commits itself to ensuring:

  • Visiting supporters are given a fair allocation of capacity. This should include - so far as is practically possible.
  • a number of tickets that are both seated and under cover.
  • Avoiding unfair practices that deliberately exclude away supporters - such as reduced price offers for individual games that are only available to home supporters.
  • Supporters of clubs whose visit may be deemed "more attractive" are not penalised by match price bracketing.
  • An adequate number of safety stewards are on duty.
  • The kick off time of games is never unilaterally moved in order to gain a perceived competitive advantage and, where the movement of matches is unavoidable, ensuring that the needs of visiting sides and supporters is given a high consideration.

Resolution 4

THAT: No member should be elected to the club board without receiving the explicit approval from more than 50% of the members who have cast a vote in the election.

The resolution would be adequately implemented by adding the following new rules into the constitution in the section of the constitution titled "Constitution of the club board".

"New Rule 1 The procedure for electing members to the Club Board should be such that members are presented with a list of prospective candidates and instructed to provide a vote for those candidates whose election to the Club Board the member would approve of.

The candidate with the highest percentage approval of all votes cast shall be the first elected to the Club Board, followed by the candidate with the second highest percentage approval of all votes cast and so on until all vacancies on the Club Board have been filled subject to the conditions set out in *New Rule 2*.

New Rule 2 No candidate for election to the Club Board who achieves an approval percentage of less than 50% in the election shall be elected to the Club Board regardless of whether vacancies on the board remain."

Resolution 5

THAT: The club should always facilitate the attendance of supporters at away matches through acceptance of a ticket allocation (where applicable). Should the board or club officials have reservations about FC United supporters attending a fixture - be it on grounds of safety or simply a preference that people boycott - then this should be conveyed by way of advice rather than instruction, thus allowing individuals the opportunity to make their own choice on the matter in keeping with the democratic principles of the club.

GM 2011 7/4/2011

Resolution 1

THAT: I [FC United Member] would like to suggest a change to how the board are voted on by the membership. I think it is generally thought that the current 400 words are insufficient for such an important decision. I would like to propose that everyone planning to stand for a board position, both existing board members and prospective new board members, should have to answer a set of questions, provided by club members, and then selected by a group of members, either elected by the membership to select, or if time does not allow, selected by volunteering. This would give existing board members the chance to show what they have done during their tenure on the board, and what they intend to continue to do as well as allow prospective board members to "showcase" the skills they feel they can bring to the board.

By implementing this, members of the club will be able to find out directly how important issues will be handled by the board going forward.

ii) Candidates submit a 400 words statement.

iii) An internet/Members' area facility is established for people to post questions to candidates which they can respond to, if they wish.

iv) The Board explore the possibilities for making provision for those not on the internet to access these questions and answers (to be determined).

v) There is a period of up to 2 hours at the AGM for people to ask questions of candidates in person.

vi) The Board commits to explore ways in which those who cannot attend the AGM may be able to access this part of the proceedings and cast their vote online or by postal vote after hearing it.

Resolution 3

THAT: The membership believe that changing kick off times from their traditional slots can be inconvenient to fans and detrimental to the match-day atmosphere. The membership instruct the Board to take this and the following guiding principles into account when deciding whether to accept an invitation to move a game to be shown on TV:

1. The time of kick off proposed.

2. The travelling times involved for the fans (FC fans for away matches, Opposition fans for home matches).

3. The impact of a no decision on the other club.

4. The benefits to our club to be derived from this exposure.

5. The impact of any additional money in helping the club achieve its aims. The outcome of such discussion should be recorded and made available to the club's membership.

GM 2009 29/2/2009

Resolution 1

THAT: FA Rule 2 (a) General Provisions, includes the following instruction "A Club shall include the following provisions in its Articles of Association (where a corporate body) or Club rules (where an unincorporated association)". We are therefore required by the FA to include these provisions as written above, but as our club is owned by its members, we require your approval to make this change to our constitution.

Many members of our club have supported the concept that the FA should take more responsibility for how football clubs are run. Therefore, while we would not normally support an outside body having the right to approve or request amendment to the rules voted for by our members, we welcome the FA taking the lead by formatting these regulations, which give them a greater oversight of clubs.

Please be assured that any future amendments to our rules, would, like this one, require a twothirds majority members' vote for approval.

For - 99%
Against - 1%


Resolution 2

THAT: Rule 62 currently only requires board members to vacate the office held. I [Gareth Moore] propose this change because firstly, in elections past, board members not due for re-election have resigned and club members have not been aware of this until after the deadline for announcing candidature. On one occasion I considered the resigning member to be better qualified for the board position and did not stand. With knowledge of the resignation, in what became an election with no unsuccessful candidates: I and others may have chosen to stand. Secondly, whilst I recognise that wholesale change is not necessarily a good idea and that for the most part board members seeking reelection often do succeed; they may not always be the very best candidate.

Although I feel that the proposed change may do little to change the status quo for existing board members, it will provide much needed clarity for the members in the selection process and can only encourage active participation in that process
