“It is political and never a productive working setting. We have gone nowhere for therefore lengthy and that is the place I am happy and hoping that (new president) David Barham goes to do that correctly.

“We’ll see how robust (Barham) needs to be. He has to face up. There’s at all times political animals in soccer golf equipment. He is received to be robust right here to see via that to do what’s finest for the Essendon Soccer Membership.”
