The Birmingham City Supporters’ Trust is extremely disappointed to hear of Chris Hughton’s impending departure as manager this afternoon.
His exit will only add to the club’s deeply concerning current state, with uncertainty surrounding the club’s long term viability and finances.
While the Trust acknowledges that recent statements have been made via the official BCFC website, we call upon the club to engage in further dialogue with Birmingham City fans regarding the ongoing saga surrounding the club’s financial accounts and offer assurances on both the short and long term future of Birmingham City Football Club.
In addition, the Trust also requests that the club is more forthcoming regarding any potential takeover and believes that all Birmingham City fans, Trust members or otherwise, deserve to be kept informed.
The Trust is neither anti-board nor a protest group and is committed to working in partnership with the club to ensure a better future for Birmingham City. All Birmingham City fans are invited to become a member of the Blues Trust – you can find further details on how to sign up on the Blues Trust website.
