The Essendon Board held a meeting at the True Value Solar Centre to address a number of important issues stemming from the CAS decision.
In a message to members, Chairman, Lindsay Tanner, reaffirmed support for the players remains the Club’s top priority.
“As a Club we felt we needed to get together and respond to the challenges that have been put to us,” Tanner said.
“Most importantly we have to ensure our twelve suspended players are back up and running and firing at the end of the year.
“We’re firmly focused on maximising our performance in 2016 and building a great platform for future seasons.”
Tanner also confirmed the financial stability of the Club was high on the agenda. He’s assured members and supporters the Club is taking proactive measures to ensure the Club is in the best possible position.
“We are dealing with the financial challenges we are facing as a result of the (CAS) decision and issues that flow from that.
“Everybody at the Club is working very hard and pursuing those objectives.”
