The accounts were approved as a formality.
Early in the proceedings, Jon Woodswas re-elected to the Board of Directors but with show of hands showing opposition from some shareholders. Robert Earl was also elected tothe Board, a formaliy considering his 'investment' in the shareholding of the club.
The Board wheeled out Mr Chris Potts, from Savills, planning consultants working with Everton Football Club, to explain that Goodison Park could not be developed in such a way to accommodate a capacity in excess of 37,500. The Bestway / Loop proposal was alsosimilarly dismissed.
There follwed a long and fractious series of callsfrom the floor, challenging many of the details and issues surrounding Destination Kirkby, with strong opposition evident in teh comments of many a concerned shareholder.
Representatives from the Everton Shareholders Association and the Everton Former Players Foundation were then invited to addres sthe meeting, and were generally well-recieved.
David Moyes then took the mic and made a point of talking about the football, basking in the glory of securing Uefa Cup football for the club.
