Blues Trust is the supporters’ trust for fans of Birmingham City FC.  We want Blues fans to have a greater say in the way that BCFC is run.

Blues Trust is a member of Supporters Direct (SD) whose goal is to promote sustainable spectator sports clubs based on supporters involvement and community ownership. SD has helped to establish supporters’ trusts at over 170 clubs and it helped us register our Rules on 21 February 2012.

bluestrustlordkBlues Trust needs a secretary and more board members.

We don’t have a secretary at present since our last one resigned due to time pressures.  So we are looking for someone who has time to do the work.  The ideal person would be someone with experience of acting as secretary for some organisation such as a school board of governors.  Supporters Direct provides training for supporters’ trust secretaries so experience is not essential but the person appointed must be willing to take responsibility. An efficient secretary makes a huge contribution to the smooth running of the trust but mistakes can have serious consequences.  If you know your Birmingham City history, you may remember that it was a mistake made by the club secretary that kept Birmingham City out of the F A Cup in 1920-21; he forgot to send in the application form.
