Caley Thistle need to reconnect with city of Inverness


By Will Clark


Inverness Caledonian Thistle has to work harder to build relationships with the city to help improve the football club.

That is the view of chief executive officer Scot Gardiner who said it must re-engage with people in Inverness after saying the club has become disconnected with its supporters.

Caley Thistle held a public meeting on Tuesday night where supporters heard about the club’s financial situation that it was predicted to make an annual loss of £872,000 at the end of May this year.

Speaking at a packed meeting, Gardiner said the club needed to have a greater presence in the city and work harder to establish relationships with its support.

“I was amazed going through the town there is not a sign of the football club anywhere in any of the main streets,” he said.

“If you were a tourist going through the Eastgate Centre, there is no trace of Caley Thistle.
