As part of his root-and-branch reform of the Bower Fold outfit, Gorski wants to recruit new directors and to set up a management committee which fans can use to voice their opinions, make suggestions, and to volunteer their skills.
“Our directors do a great job, They’re all volunteers who put in a vast amount of their own time. Syd White and Gordon Greenwood probably spend more time here than they do at their own homes,” said the chairman.
“But I feel we’ve got to have some new faces. We’ve gone a bit stale and need some fresh contributions, fresh networking and fresh ideas.
“As for the management committee, if you want to call it that, I want fans to play a major role.
“They’re the people who watch us every week and I want to know what they think, what they feel needs to change, and how they think we can do things better. I want to make use of their sponsorship ideas, their contacts and their skills.
“Over the summer my plan is to get a group of around 20 together. There will be directors involved but the supporters will have the lead. It’s about them and their ideas.”
Gorski has also defended his full-time youth development project which has now been abandoned. Despite the criticism he has faced over the last year or two he insists the idea was sound and Celtic have only returned to being a traditional semi-professional outfit because that’s what manager Liam Watson wanted.
Money is not a motivating factor and Gorski says any savings made by going back to part-time football will be negligible.
He explained: “The return to being semi-professional has been completely driven by Liam. If he had wanted us to stay full-time we would have done so.
“Contrary to what a lot of people think, the concept of full-time football was a good one. Where it went wrong for us was that we didn’t have enough experience and physicality in the team. Everybody seemed to be 18 years old. But the concept wasn’t flawed.
“We now have Liam Watson in place and he’s a winner. He’s been there and done it four times. We’ll see how things go and if he wins promotion and wants us to return to being a full-time club then that’s what will happen.
“The most important person at any club is the manager and as chairman I have to back him.”
The third dimension of Gorski’s close-season plan is to convince the fans that he sees them as an important and valued part of Stalybridge Celtic.
“Some supporters feel there is a gap between them and the directors, and that the gap is bigger now than it has ever been,” he said.
“That really saddens me because I was a fan. I stood on those same terraces and at that time we knew much less. There was no internet or Twitter.
“I want to close that perceived gap and next season I’ll be making an effort to communicate. I’ll be spending more time in the social club than in the sponsors’ lounge.”
