A SENIOR member of the Thurrock Independent Group has written to Thurrock Council for clarity over the position of East Thurrock United Football Club.
The letter reads:
Please can you give me a full update on what is going on with the Billet and East Thurrock?
The Cabinet agreed to sell to East Thurrock in 2014 and they have asked for the deal to be initiated. I have been told they have not had a response despite a request for initiating in April 2019.
“This Council has a poor public history of support for its sports teams as we are all aware of. We should be doing everything we can to improve relationships between us and sports teams in the borough. The reports that we are actively ignoring them is incredibly disappointing.
Cllr Jack Duffin
