Robert Stanley - Who Is He?

Post by BPAFC_Supporter » 20 Sep 2017, 15:02

Hi All,

I'm a supporter of Bradford Park Avenue who play in the Conference North.

I noticed a fellow pop up on my LinkedIn feed called Robert Stanley who was previously affiliated with Torquay. What caught my eye is that the chap has recently listed that he is now CEO at Bradford Park Avenue.

I can't seem to find much out about him and as we're away from home for the next two weekends so I won't be seeing anyone official to ask about him any time soon.

Can any of you shed any light on him? Who is he and what's he like?

Thanks in advance,

An. Avenueite

He was our stadium manager for a while, if I recall correctly. Think he was moved on when Dave Phillips and the rest purchased the club.

Honestly I would be surprised if most Torquay fans even knew who he was. As Scott says he was Stadium Manager (whatever that means) so not a role where the fans would really pay him much attention. I think I am correct in saying he owned the company that supplied the stewards at Plainmoor.

I believe he was given more responsibility in the dying days of the previous regime as club secretary and then general manager but I'm not sure how qualified he was for these roles, he was certainly the "spokesperson" at the last fans forum. You can see him at said forum here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTPofyPkeMU

He left under a bit of a cloud after being suspended for some reason but again this was never communicated to the fans.

Wasn't he involved in trying to put together an eleventh hour consortium to block the GI takeover?

Suspended for being to honest.
