Blues Trust after the takeover

by | 14 Oct 2016 | 1 comment

The Blues Trust Annual General Meeting will take place on Wednesday, November 9th. It will be our first AGM after the end of the ownership crisis that led to the formation of the trust.  In July 2011, Daniel Ivery, on Often Partisan, suggested setting up a trust as an alternative to “shouting platitudes whilst holding placards”. A group of people thought that was a good idea, formed a steering committee and worked to get the trust registered as a legal entity in February 2012.

So what is the role of the trust now? If you follow the link above you will see that the trust was never intended to be a single-issue protest group, concentrating on forcing Carson out. From the start, the trust’s aim was to promote a constructive relationship between the club and its supporters. If we have owners who are willing to consult supporters, then we will work with them for the good of the club.  But we will remain independent so that we will always be free to challenge decisions made by the owners and hold them accountable.

We don’t know what is going to happen after the takeover is completed on Monday.  I hope that Daniel is correct when he says he doubts “anyone at BCFC will notice any difference” because the staff have done a good job at keeping the club running. Gary Rowett has assembled a decent team that is doing better than some teams that have cost a lot more. Non-playing staff are working hard to keep the fans happy and the commercial department are coming up with creative ways to increase income. I think the live beam back of the Nottingham Forrest game is a great idea and plan to be watching it in the Legends’ Lounge at St Andrew’s tonight.
