Lincoln City board survive no confidence vote at EGM

Lincoln City

Lincoln City shareholders have rejected resolutions calling for the ousting of chairman Bob Dorrian and the board of directors at an EGM at Sincil Bank.

More than 78% of votes backed Dorrian with a similar number in favour of the board as a whole, while six directors also saw motions against them rejected.

Dorrian told BBC Lincolnshire: "Even allowing for the directors' and Trust votes, we had more of the popular vote.

"I feel a mixture of relief and anger that we had to go through all this."

The EGM was called by a group of shareholders unhappy at the running of the club and its financial situation.

One of the group, former director Keith Roe, said: "When the rank-and-file vote against certain members of the board is overwhelming, even though they can stay on the board their position in my mind is untenable and they should stand down."
