Not just for the bad times

25 Jan 2016 |

Bolton Wanderers Supporters Trust was launched this month, on January 6th. It was registered with the Financial Conduct Authority on January 15th and it already has over 4,000 members. As someone who was involved in setting up Blues Trust, I have some idea of the incredible amount of work that the working group must have done in that short time. They were backed by the passion, support and encouragement of Bolton Wanderers fans.  When a football club is in crisis, fans will unite to save it.

Birmingham City is in 7thplace in the Championship and our club seems to be running smoothly.  We’ve grown accustomed to our ownership situation. Blues fans don’t have the same reason for urgent action as the Bolton fans do.  So Blues Trust board members were not surprised that only 8 people joined us at our open board meeting on Saturday.  We were encouraged that they came and by the useful discussion we had.  And we will publish the minutes of the meeting later.

We believe that a supporters trust is needed for the good times as well as the bad.  In the good times we can take part in the structured dialogue between club and fans that is required by a new Government report. (See previous post.) If a crisis comes, we will be here to help save our club.
