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.

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.

The bidding process?

The bidding process?

Recent comments in the press about the bidding process, and other rumours, indicate that there are several bidders in the process of wanting to buy our Football Club. We understand that the parent company BIHL has sifted through the various applications from bidders and an announcement of a preferred bidder seems imminent, although the constant delays and lack of information are extremely frustrating. We urge the board of BIHL to update everyone associated with the club as to what the current position is and the potential time-line of the process; this will help alleviate the concerns of many supporters.

Do you back ‘League 3′ plan?

Posted on 10 May 2014

sdfansandfsfLeague 3

The  Football Association commission’s  plan to boost English football includes a proposal to create a new tier for Premier League B teams.  This tier, League 3, would be between League 2 and the Conference and would initially be made up of 10 Conference teams plus 10 Premier League B teams.

 Some Premier League clubs have expressed support for this idea but there has been a negative response from the lower tiers. The Football Conference  issued a statement saying  that representatives of the Conference were not consulted about the proposal and feel it threatens the existence of the Pyramid on which the English game is based.

 Supporters Direct (SD) and the Football Supporters Federation (FSF)have said that supporters should also be consulted.  The SD statement  said that the introduction of B teams would  reinforce the present system  that stockpiles talent.  The FSF  have put a poll on their site to get fans’ opinions on B teams.

Blues Trust is in agreement with the statements made by SD and FSF.  We strongly agree that the FA should consider supporters’ opinions on this matter.  We encourage all fans to make their views known by taking part in the FSF poll.
