BWFCST Update

Following our email on May 5th where we asked Supporters to consider a share issue to gain a stakeholding in the club, we would like to inform you that yesterday we had our first meeting with the administrators. This was an introductory session which allowed our Chairman Terence Rigby to give the administration team more information on the Supporters’ Trust and its aims. Further meetings will be arranged once the administrator has had a chance to fully assess the situation and can give us more information. We will update again when we have further news.

Absolutely nothing to report again then. If I alerted the press every time I had a meeting I'd have to start my own bloody media organisation

They've not alerted the press,Fin, just registered supporters.

I post it only to let non members see what we're getting.

Joint statement from the Community Trust and the Supporters’ Trust

After recent discussions with the Community Trust regarding the ongoing difficulties surrounding staff wages and a subsequent meeting yesterday, it has been collectively decided that a more practical solution is needed to deal with the current distress being experienced by staff as a result of unpaid wages.

The Community Trust has been humbled and overwhelmed by the outpouring of goodwill together with massive levels of donations of both funds and provisions from all over the country and have been in regular contact with the BWFCST during this process and also during previous incidences of non-payment of wages and wish to place on record their heartfelt thanks for offers of assistance from the Supporters’ Trust.

Questions have been asked about why there seems to be some difficulties in administering such generous offers of assistance. The simple answer is that both the BWCT and the BWFCST are regulated by the FCA. Those regulations place strict conditions, which must be complied with, regarding the use of such resources. Please rest assured that we are collectively continuing to look at ways of assisting in the current situation.

We are all in this together and will continue to find solutions by sticking together and assisting Phil Mason and his team wherever possible in continuing their community work

As fans will be aware the Supporters’ Trust set up a fundraising page at the start of the administration. We initially used funds to engage an expert lawyer in this field to advise on proceedings and the Trust’s role in the process. We also sought advice on governance issues that have blighted the club during Anderson’s ownership. We will update in due course on expenditure to date  but in the meantime, there is still work to be  done with this fund and we would like to consult with our new owners on some outstanding issues where this can be utilised before we report back. Please be patient whilst we continue with our work and and we will update as and when we are able.
Many thanks to all who have contributed generously to this fighting fund. Your help has been invaluable to the work of the Trust during this turbulent period for our club.

It should be donated to the academy or a nice touch would be to people who will lose their jobs at Bury

Give it to the community trust. I'm sure they would use it wisely.

Fighting fund? I wonder how much the ST have made out of this latest fundraiser.

It’s just a bunch of chancers who have no say whatsoever in the dealings at BWFC tbh.  Very Happy

*Board Elections - Update from Election Management Group*





Bearing in mind the current uncertainty and anxiety associated with the worldwide Covid-19 situation, BWFCST board elections may seem to be low on the list of priorities.

As members will be aware, the election process has been running for the last few weeks with nominations closing last Monday (16 March).

The following is an update from the Election Management Group, which we are required to provide as part of the election process.

We have received confirmation from Civica, our independent election advisors, that four nominations have been received and validated.

As four positions were available, the four members who put their names forward will now take up a board position and there will not be a need for a members ballot to take place.

The four new board members are:

Robin Fletcher
Sue Higson
Will Jones
Paul Wood

Robin, Sue, Will and Paul will now join Paul Brown, Simon Nightingale and Mike Smith to form a board of seven.

It was intended to have the new board available to meet members at the AGM which was being scheduled for early May. However, due to the current Covid-19 situation, in line with Government advice, the AGM is now on hold until further notice, but this will not prevent the new members being in communication with each other, commencing as soon as possible and practical.

Thank you for your attention. Please stay safe and continue to follow Government advice during the anxious times ahead being faced by all.

An Introduction to Robin Fletcher

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It was good news to hear I had been given a place on the BWFCST’s Board. The news was tempered by the Corona Virus pandemic.

I have been a Bolton Wanderers supporter since the 1960’s and a season ticket holder for nigh on 50 years.

I believe the Trust is the best vehicle for supporters to safe guard the long term future of the Club. Furthermore, the more members the Trust has the more influence it can bring to bear. 

It is my aim that all supporters become members of the Trust. All members should be encouraged to be active including standing to be Directors on the Board. 

In this time of National Emergency it is difficult to ask people to engage with the Trust, particularly when personal hardships are unknown, however it is a time to ensure that when the pandemic is under control we are best placed to help to get BWFC back on track.

Stick your £20m into the club Robin just like Sharon has and I'm sure they would make you a director.

Otherwise why would they???

As for all Wanderers supporters become members of the Trust - I think you've got a better chance of becoming one of its directors before that would ever happen!

New face but still the same old delusions.

It would be great to see the club appoint a supporters representative to the board, it’s a general point about football in this country that fans need more of a voice.

What kind of a representative did you have in mind? Leave aside the vile abuse a football club director can expect, directors have a lot of legal responsibilities and BWFC still has only two willing to undertake them.

No BWFC supporter should need reminding that there's a lot can go wrong at football clubs and in football grounds

Can he read a balance sheet?

The original comment contains all the information you need, I think supporter representatives at board level would be good for English football. Germany does this very well and the clubs are more engrained with local communities than they are in this country.

Realistically a change like that would need legislation, but I support any initiative from fans to fight for it.

I've no idea, as per usual the ST/the Board member themselves, don't seem to give much  personal details other than they are long time Wanderers Supporters - which I would have thought would be a prerequisite for standing anyway!

For example a former Chair of the ST said nothing about his serial business failures leading to many people losing their money - and apparently having to pay back a considerable sum of money himself over a period of years to the Administrator/Liquidator on one of his failed businesses!

It's all there in the public domain to see.

When the details were eventually brought to the wider publics attention he stepped down from his role at the ST - just a coincidence of timing no doubt!

I note that Rigby and Tetlow seemed to have vanished now from the ST - I would have thought the ST might have publicly expressed their thanks to them for their achievements whilst in office.

Am I being too sarcastic perhaps?

As for the German model which people often quote, basically they are comparing apples with oranges as Company Law and legal responsibilities differ between the two countries.

There's nothing stopping anyone being invited to attended the board in a voluntary capacity if non confidential stuff is being discussed but why would someone who has put £20m of their own money into the club want some random fan tell them how they should be spending it???

Maybe the virus will lead to the football business model in this country being rethought - I can see many clubs going to the wall if this thing lasts for a few years - and it becomes more grassroots again - but you will still have people wanting a bigger say in how things are run, than the rest of the others - that's simply human nature.

As it stands I know nothing about Robin other than he's a Wanderers fan and won a seat on the ST Board because not enough people could be bothered to stand for it to have him or anyone else (ever!) voted in democratically, so why should I (or anyone else) believe he's the right person to represent me on the clubs board of directors???

Dream on Robin.
