Taylor: New Birmingham owners making great effort to get to know everyone

Birmingham City defender Martin Taylor says the players have welcomed the club's new board.

Carson Yeung made a whirlwind visit to Wast Hills a day after his official unveiling as Blues' new power.

And the players and management staff were treated to a meal recently at the China Court restaurant, Birmingham, in order to get to know the board.

"Sometimes at a club you can say there's a takeover at the top and you never even notice," Taylor told the Birmingham Mail.

"But they seem to be quite hands-on. They are around the place. They've been making an effort to get to know the players and talk to them, which is good because it brings that little bit more closeness between the staff and the board, the people at the top.

"That's not normally the case, no. You could be at a club for months and never actually meet the chairman.

"They made a big effort to put on an event for us and not just keep their distance, but come over to say hello to everyone as well and make themselves known.

"It's just what we read in the papers where we get our information from mostly.

''So it was a bit different for them to come round and speak face-to-face and pleasant for us to put the names to the pictures you see of them."
