Syngenta Juveniles Appoint New Chair

Written by  Angus Blacklock

Syngenta Juveniles have appointed a new club chairman, whilst also holding a virtual AGM over Zoom for the first time in their 60 year history.


It was over his laptop screen that experienced coach Michael McQueenie, who is already on the executive committee, found out about his new role.


Speaking to YFS, Michael said: “We have been running without an official chairman for a while now so it's great to now have the full complement of exec members sitting at the top table"


"Myself and long-term club exec member Kevin McGuire have been covering the role for a while now. 


“I was approached by the club secretary Nikki Corner after she had received a nomination for me to become chairman. 


“To be asked is a real honour. I follow the footsteps of some very strong leaders - none more so than Davie Johnston who, since my appointment, has congratulated me and offered his support which I'm sure will prove invaluable ."


“To be appointed over Zoom was really just a bit bizarre. However, we move on and start to look forward to returning to football once it's deemed safe."


He continued: "We, as a club plan to consolidate and to keep the club safe after this global pandemic however the growth strategy is also something we are closely considering."


In a statement, Syngenta Juveniles said: “The feedback received from the AGM has been positive and the executive committee will continue to work hard on behalf of the club, to progress the club even further as we move into our 60th year and beyond."


To celebrate the landmark occasion, the club have launched a new club badge, which can be read about here. They also plan to launch an anniversary kit.


The Syngenta statement continued: "A huge thanks to everyone affiliated with the club, our volunteer coaches, team assistants and secretaries and to all our players for the pride they show in being a Syngenta player.”
