On Wednesday May 13, 2009 a special general meeting of the Bedford Soccer Association was held. Club head coach Marc Butler asked soccer parents to vote YES to a merger with HCU, Halifax County United Soccer Club.
“I think the merger of the two clubs will make an incredible soccer club for our kids”, stated Butler. “The merger will bring together two clubs who share the same philosophies when it comes to developing players and making sure our kids have fun on the soccer field”.
“If the merger doesn’t go through”, he added, “we will still continue to grow and develop players. If the merger does go through we will become a more organized club and that can only mean a better place for our kids to play soccer”.
Unfortunately, Marc Butler’s wishes were not granted. On May 13 over 90 members attended the special general meeting to vote.
Following a series of short presentations from long standing members and Mike Hudson from Soccer Nova Scotia the membership voted down the proposal with a 58 “yes” to 33 “No” result. In order to pass the motion required a 75% approval.
