Letter from the Chief Executive of Fulham Football Club

I would like to thank you for the opportunity to contribute to the Friends of Bishops Park Web Site and thought I would use this opportunity to introduce myself to you all, as I have recently joined Fulham FC as Chief Executive.

I was appointed by the Club’s Chairman, Mohamed Al Fayed, in July and my first two months at the Club have been extremely hectic due to the busy period of the football transfer window. I previously spent ten years at Manchester City Football Club and of course there are synergies that can be drawn between the two clubs regarding the business of football. However, Fulham is an entirely different proposition and an exciting new challenge for me which I am already enjoying enormously.

Our Chairman has reinforced his undoubted commitment with the summer’s business on the pitch and the level of funds made available to Roy Hodgson to build a squad that he can work with effectively to compete against all that the Premier League has to offer. We have significantly reduced the numbers in the First Team squad and believe that we now have balance and flexibility in all positions. By reducing the squad we are also able to offer opportunities to the impressive teenagers within our Academy ranks who may prove themselves worthy of a starting position given the chance.

After only a handful of games the signs are positive and we are looking forward to the season with optimism. Off the pitch things are also encouraging, and we will continue to work hard to develop all areas to enable us to become a commercially viable, self sustaining business.

Within our community we are exceptionally proud of the work that the Club’s Community Sports Trust (CST) carries out. For those that are unaware, the CST works with over 200,000 children each year across eight boroughs in London and Surrey delivering high quality sports initiatives, along with developing programmes to inspire young people in our community to stay active, be healthy, achieve educationally and make a positive contribution.

Fulham FC has been working closely with its local community for nearly twenty years and was awarded charitable status in October 2005. The CST programme is highly regarded nationally and has won recognition for the quality of its racial awareness and disability programmes in particular. We shall continue to place extreme importance on our social responsibility within our community and will work closely with our partners in the boroughs in which we work, to ensure we tackle the very real issues that face our society today.

It is an exciting time at the Club both on and off the pitch and I am delighted to be a part of it. We hope that we will continue to receive your support. I enjoyed meeting some of you on Thursday 4 September at the meeting we held at Craven Cottage. It is my aim to ensure that communications channels are open and we maintain and enjoy a positive dialogue with the residents in our community, and I look forward to meeting more of you in the future.

With best wishes

Alistair Mackintosh.
