leeclarkFollowing yesterday’s decision to terminate the contracts of both Lee Clark and Steve Watson,  the Trust would like to place on record its gratitude for their endeavours  whilst at the helm of the club in challenging circumstances. Fans of BCFC will always be grateful for the way in which LC guided BCFC to safety at the Reebok when all seemed lost. Whilst no one can doubt LC’s commitment to BCFC and his desire to succeed at our Club, the time came for a change of direction.  We wish LC and SW the best of luck for the future.

Fans for Diversity

fansfordiversity

The Trust together with other supporter group representatives have been asked to take part in the BCFC ‘Buddy Scheme”, at this Saturday’s home game versus Bolton Wanderers as part of the wider Fans for Diversity Campaign. The Football Supporters’ Federation (FSF) and Kick It Out have teamed up to work on the new campaign, which works with all aspects of diversity not only to highlight the many challenges but also to celebrate how football brings people together.

A key element of the campaign is to give fans an opportunity to highlight pro-diversity in their own way through the Fans Initiative Fund. Fans have been and continue to be creative and work on specific forms of diversity and discrimination or diversity as a whole, thus proving how fans can come together in making football as inclusive as possible and highlight the challenges that we face around discrimination.
