Headline point is that Trust will be leading a supporter boycott of Stevenage next season. Also Herts Police hid behind Terrorism Act in refusing to answer questions via the Freedom of Information Act.

So the trust actually lost money ?

Is the 30K an annual amount for a seat on the board ?   Thought the place on the board was secured by handing over the % of the Parker shares.


If 30k of the trusts fundraising is spent just on being allowed a seat on the board then considering the Trust dont really seem to be valued by the board, ie not consulted on the Checkatrade, no response received regards Stevenage, then is it value for money ?
Especially if you are then paying bills on top to another 32k.

Do all seat holders on the board have to pay 30k a year or is this a "trust special fee" ? (appreciate some may put in much more).


Seems a little one sided if you ask me.

Thanks Bax.



I think Moosey's question about whether other GTFC board have to pay in £30,000 a year needs to be answered by the Club really. I wonder if the club have anyone who monitors this message board and is able to help us get our facts right?

A word with our MP and get her to ask a few questions in parliament would be a good idea, this is unacceptable.

Agree with this, t's a good idea to "fgetyyourfactstraight" so if someone could clarify.

Trust spent more than it made last year, yes. The reasons for that are outlined in the minutes.

Yes the Trust pays £30,000 a year for a place on the board.

The remainder of that should probably be answered by the club!

but as a board member surely they know the answer to that as they will be privvy to the goings on in the boardroom ?
If i was any good at understanding accounts and account speak could i find the answer be in the recently published club accounts ?

I don't work for the club, therefore it's not my place to answer for them!

Do the Trust get a vote on any proposed agenda points & motions?
