CHAIRMAN James Brent has identified the importance of getting more women to become involved with Plymouth Argyle.

And Brent means not only among the fanbase of the Green Army but in the boardroom too.

Argyle have seven directors in addition to Brent, including Simon Hallett and Tony Wrathall who are also part owners of the newly-promoted League One club.

The other five are David Felwick, Richard Holliday, Peter Jones, John Morgan and Martyn Starnes, the Pilgrims' chief executive.

Brent told Herald Sport: "There is a view in football, which I think is really bad, that directors bring cheque books.

"What we actually need more of is bringing smarts and bringing life experiences outside of football.

"We do have an issue in the boardroom at the moment that we are white, middle-aged and 100 per cent male, so we do need to address that."

There are still only a few women in positions of power at football clubs across the country and Brent would like that to change at Argyle.

Brent said: "This is not about political correctness. There is incredibly powerful academic evidence that diverse boards perform much better than single-sex boards in particular.

"It works both ways. If you have a purely female board then they under-perform a mixed board as well, so we need to improve that."

He continued: "I think 16 per cent of our regular fans are women and we need to get that up.

"We want to be a family club. We love the tribalism (of football) but I don't have an aspiration for a rugby club-type environment where fans mix on the terraces.


"That's not what football is about for me, but we do want to attract more women and we want to attract more young families to sustain and grow the club as we go forward."

Hallett and his wife, Jane, are providing £5 million – £4.1m of that by way of a 30-year loan – to fund the proposed redeveloped and expanded Grandstand at Home Park.

Brent confirmed there were no plans at the moment for Mrs Hallett to become a club director.

"She hasn't indicated a wish to, and what we want to do is appoint people on grounds of merit," said Brent.

"When we do look to refresh the board, we aren't going to ask people to come and bring cheque books.

"We are going to ask people to come and bring smarts and intelligence, and help us to progress the club."


taken from brents herald.


he really hasnt got a clue has he. Im sure most clubs would rather employ a woman director/chairman who has cash and knows buisness and actually likes football which would make them over qualified for us.

can we not just get rid of brent and the other directors who i still dont know what they bring to the club/

I'm getting " I haven't considered buying the freehold"  Very Happy  Very Happy
Do people actually fall for this stuff ? I guess some do.

As to the tribalism comment, since when were women or rugby fans NOT tribal. The last time I strode the planet, all the tribes were half women.
It's like listening to George and Bungle.

He's not talking about equality, Les, his sort don't believe in it in any case. The AFT certainly weren't offered equality of voting rights for their 400K. It's all about his new found mate's family, or maybe his own. You can have any gender you desire, but you have to back it up with a wallet. I'm just wondering where Brent's original strap line went ....... "No walleted directors"
Just as well to remember at this point that few people understand that Pankhurst didn't do her suffrage stuff for all women, just well to do women.

Did you actually read what Brent said?

Bullshit it may be...  But it is in line with "No walleted Directors".

So, why is Hallet a director and/or his partner ? Does he not have a wallet ? Did he not bring in comparative big bucks, he brought a cheque book ? a million plus ? Am I missing something here ?

Not at all (apart from what Brent is quoted as saying) which like I said, appears to be PR Bullshit.

Brent could appoint a female board member tomorrow if he wanted to - indeed, if he feels about it so strongly, why hasn't he done it already.

Look at all the other high ranking or prominent positions at Home Park where he has appointed woman.
Err...

Brent has probably found out that the EFL are giving handouts for a "diverse" boardroom.
There's only one thing that motivates him.
