Here's Your Hat....

You should always be aware when you are not wanted and Ken McGeoch was not wanted in the Buddies boardroom any longer
There was never much doubt of the outcome of last night's vote as the other directors are either part of the the selling consortium which called for McGeoch to quit or the 10,000 Hours group which is looking to lead a community ownership takeover. In November last year, McGeoch had a meeting with Withey in the St Mirren boardroom to discuss his takeover plans. The current owning consortium had described Withey's involvement as a "serious breach of trust and an error of judgement" on the part of McGeoch. the ousted director denied wrongdoing and argued that Collyer Bristow, the firm in which Withey was a partner at the time, were established as legal experts on football takeover deals. McGeoch had previously put his shares in the club up for sale and hit out at a "sustained campaign to discredit my bid and remove me from the board". He had claimed shareholders deserved the chance to discuss the situation but it is believed he was advised by his legal team not to attend last night's vote.
