        ii)  Format of AGM Minute 11 – The Board had a discussion regarding the
             appropriateness of a joint conference with the FSF and the format of
             the SD AGM. It was agreed it was important that the SD conference
             engaged all members, not just England & Wales football. It was also
             agreed that the AGM should be given more prominence and utilised
             more fully to engage with members about their issues and the
             challenges faced by SD. It was agreed that proposals for the Annual
             Conference and AGM would be brought to a future meeting.

4.   CASH MANAGEMENT AND BANKING FACILITIES
     The Board received a paper providing an update on action taken since the last
     Board meeting in relation to the issues with the SD current account.
     The Board agreed to retain its banking facilities with the co-operative Bank
     and to move to FD Online.

     It was also agreed, however, that, if issues persisted with credit card usage
     (particularly overseas), the Chief Executive and Head of Finance were
     authorised to make an application for credit cards with Barclaycard.

5.   OUTCOMES FROM THE STRATEGY DISCUSSION
     It was agreed that the Chief Executive would take the ideas and suggestions
     from the strategy discussion and work into a proposal and bring to a future
     meeting.

6.   MATTERS RAISED BY COUNCILS
     RP reported on the most recent meeting of the E&W Council. He advised that
     discussions with the Council had indicated that there was some confusion
     about the purpose of the Council and the role of the Council members. It was
     clear that members wanted to have a Council which was accountable to
     them. It was agreed that further clarification was required and that a proper
     induction for new Council members would be beneficial.

     The E&W Council had also suggested there should be a staff recognition
     scheme. It was agreed that the issue should be referred to the Staffing sub –
     committee to look as part of the benchmarking exercise around reward and
     benefits.

7.   OTHER BUSINESS
     i)    Martyn Cheney – MC advised the Board that his details had been
           published on a racist website stating that he backed anti racist groups.
           Whilst this presented no reputational risk for SD it did mention that he
           was a Director of SD. The Board noted the information.
     ii)   Staffing – DL advised the Board about changes in staffing, including
           arrangements for the replacement of the Commercial Manager and a
           new starter in Scotland.
     iii)  SD Council Election – The Secretary updated the Board on the
           progress of the Scottish Council Elections.

     There being no further business the Chair closed the meeting.
