Director again: Doug Henderson

But the stormier than usual meeting closed with calls of “resign” from the floor after the result was announced.

The former Member of Parliament faced a vote to the directors’ table at The Falkirk Stadium after his initial three-year spell came to an end.

But after his re-appointment was proposed by ex-chairman Martin Ritchie and seconded by current chairman Margaret Lang there was opposition from the floor and an initial show of hands meant the motion could not be carried with a feeling of opposition within the room.

Proxy votes already cast on the resolutions were not enough to carry the motion either so Mr Henderson’s re-election went to a card vote by shareholding and he was re-instated.

For - 1,103,452 shares

Against - 160,235 shares

Abstained - 4157 shares.

Other resolutions were passed receiving last year’s accounts and minutes. Drummond Laurie were re-appointed the club auditors and Kieran Koszary was elected to the board of directors.
