A Statement from Reds Independent 22 February 2017

On 5 October 2016, Reds Independent issued a statement that called upon the board of Shelbourne FC to explain two simple things which they publicly stated in their own statement issued the previous day.

1) What happened to the promise by Joe Casey to consult with the supporters over the relocation of the club?

2) To name the supporters’ groups that the board alleged had lobbied DCC in favour of the club relocating to Dalymount.

In  the absence of a response to these questions, Reds Independent released a further statement on 23 November 2016, calling for Shelbourne supporters to refrain from funding the club in any way while this lack of transparency
and accountability existed.

In  the absence of a published response to these matters, we regret that we again  must  ask supporters not to pay into home league matches nor any cup matches  that  the club are entitled to a percentage of gate receipts from.
We also ask supporters not to buy any product that will fund the club nor to fund the club through any form of sponsorship.

We encourage supporters to continue to support the team on the pitch and to attend away games in order to do so.

A Statement from Reds Independent 23 November 2016

Today marks the 50th day since Shelbourne FC issued a statement (4 October 2016) announcing the club would be relocating to Dalymount Park. That announcement was in stark contrast to a previous promise by club chairman Joe Casey at the club’s Fans’ Forum in Tolka Park on 2 March 2015 that there would be no move without the consultation of the fans.

The same statement from the club also alleged that Shelbourne supporters’ groups had lobbied Dublin City Councillors in favour of the club relocating to Dalymount Park. No Shelbourne supporters’ group has ever publicly supported the relocation of the club to Dalymount Park and the position of Reds Independent with regard to that issue was addressed in a public statement on 5 October 2016.

The same statement on 5 October 2016 called upon the board of Shelbourne FC to explain two simple things which they publicly stated.

1) What happened to the promise by Joe Casey to consult with the supporters over the relocation of the club?

2) To name the supporters’ groups that the board alleged had lobbied DCC in favour of the club relocating to Dalymount.

Despite the statement from RI on 5 October, and countless requests for an explanation on social media from fans to simply explain their public statement, the board has contemptuously ignored the supporters.

As Shelbourne FC is currently a privately owned entity with no obligation nor accountability to its’ supporters, we find that we can no longer continue to fund the club in any way while the current board hold its’ supporters in such disregard.

It is with deep regret that we hereby find ourselves with no other option but to ask all Shelbourne supporters not to fund the club in any way while the status quo exists. We ask supporters not to pay into home league matches nor any cup matches that the club are entitled to a percentage of gate receipts from. We also ask supporters not to buy any product that will fund the club nor to fund the club through any form of sponsorship.

A Statement from Reds Independent- 5 October 2016

While yesterday’s official confirmation that Shelbourne FC plan to relocate to a redeveloped Dalymount Park at some stage in the future couldn’t be considered a shock, there are issues that we would like the club to clarify regarding the statement that they issued (Statement from Shelbourne Board of Management 4 October 2016).

Yesterday’s statement claimed that Shelbourne supporters’ groups had lobbied Dublin City Councillors in support of the club relocating to Dalymount. Reds Independent would like to take this opportunity to clarify that they are not one of those groups, and in the interests of transparency would like the club to name those Shelbourne supporters’ groups who it is alleged did lobby DCC councillors in favour of moving the club to Dalymount.

Furthermore, at the club’s annual Fans’ Forum on 2 March 2015, club chairman Joe Casey informed the supporters present that the club would not move anywhere without consulting the fans. We are not aware of any such consultation process taking place, so we would like the board to clarify if such a process did take place, and if so, give further details of said process, or if it was decided to disregard the promise made to fans.

Finally, we would like to express our disappointment with the board’s statement describing the club as an “inconvenience” to those living close to Tolka Park, an insult to our supporters who would never view our great club in such a light. Aside from the fact that Tolka Park is there longer than probably every resident in the area, such a statement could come back to haunt the club in the future. Any planning permission that is sought for any facility by the club or for a facility by any other entity that the club may be hoping to use, could be jeopardised and can now be objected to with the club’s own description of itself as an inconvenience, and ironically will probably be used by those who will no doubt be objecting to “Project Dalymount”.
