Apologies if already shared elsewhere, but here's the link to a great little article about our change in ownership by Pete Green in When Saturday Comes.

Great work Pete if you read this, and for anyone who hasn't heard of WSC before, it's well worth checking out their stuff.

Excellent stuff - to be the first professional sport club in the world to get B Corp status will be great publicity for the club

(I see couple of people are questioning [red crossing] how that will get us 3 points on a Saturday...)

What publicity? Two things spring to mind.

a) Ask Average Joe on the street, even locally, what B Corp status is and NOBODY will be able to tell you

and sadly

b) Nobody else in the footballing world gives a flying donkeys sweaty scrotum about B Corp

Just because it’s not well known doesn’t mean it’s not worthwhile.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Everything has to start somewhere, you never know we could become world leaders!

Pete's a great writer! Really enjoyed reading their stuff in Codalmighty and WSC over the years.

Having B corp status isn’t really just about average Joe in the street knowing about it…

The footballing world isn’t then be all and end all…in a week when someone who’s literally won everything and is still performing to a high standard has sold for less than a bloke who got player of month once, the footballing world once again proves its beyond detached from the real world.

B corp status is a great thing and shows that our new leaders have a vision for the club, a desire to take us forward, not just as a football team but as an organisation, that can only be a good thing.

WSC is excellent too, I remember taking a couple of copies on a flight to Hawaii, they did the rounds on the plane, think every bloke that likes football had a read.  Great articles…

First of all, you would hope that being the first would get us a decent write up. B Corp is so pointless that Ben & Jerry's, renowned for their ethics are a B Corp organisation.

B Corp status might be the difference between a player signing or going to a rival. It’s a murky business, especially at our level, and  anything which suggests we have an ethical, transparent structure in place and employees are treated fairly is a winner in my book.
