Chelsea protesters reject chance to join CPO board

Chelsea fans have rejected an invite to join the board of the Chelsea Pitch Owners' group.

New Chelsea Pitch Owners (CPO) chairman Steve Frankham invited a representative of the 'Say No CPO' (SNCPO) campaign to become a fourth director of the supporter-led organisation.

But SNCPO declined the offer and now look likely to pursue their agenda of changing the make-up of the current board at next month's CPO annual general meeting.

SNCPO said in a statement on Tuesday: "The 'Say No' campaign group has today declined an offer from CPO chairman Steve Frankham to put one director on the board of CPO.

"The group felt that having just one token director on a board of four exposed that director to excessive risk in the light of recent and current activities of CPO, and did not address the issue that the board had not acted in the best interests of CPO, and did not reflect the views of long-standing shareholders."
