I think the subject of buying the club was more to do with people putting their money where their mouth is.
I do think as a collective group if someone had the time, patience, and thick enough skin to drive this idea forward then it would be possible.
I did suggest that people could start this ball rolling by joining the trust and making a contribution on a monthly basis
This has been an option for many years. It would be a start. It would also give people a sense of belonging again and a place to get involved and try and get their own ideas implemented.
I haven`t got any of the above attributes but I do contribute financially as does my dad.
It really is easy to spend hours on here having a good rant. It is possible to get involved with the trust in much less time.
Absolutely Mark, and I'm as guilty as the next man, allowing my Trust membership to lapse.
I don't think the Trust ever did get their shareholding back though after the club went into administration in 2007 - despite reassurances at the time, both at a public meeting at the Masonic Hall and ahead of a members vote, that it would be transferred and an equivalent proportion of shares allotted in the new company.
I think that the pre-2007 company had one board member appointed as a representative of the Trust, who held a substantial share of the club until a huge purchase of shares were made by Blue Lion Holdings, who ultimately became the majority shareholder.
