heard a rumour that we may be in talks with another big local biz man...a footy fan and involved with another local club so seems unlikely to me...suprised no one has mentioned him so far or have i missed something....fingers crossed.

Well thats all the more reason, whoever he is can see we can galvanize support and the supporers can organise.

I think this is indeed "just a rumour" and it may be best not to name anyone in case it causes unrest at his existing club.

I think I know who you are talking about but it's best to concentrate on raising funds ourselves.

There is no point us going down exactly the same route we have just experienced. We nneed to ensure that this club is reallistcally managed and that it finds it's correct level until we can progress, otherwise we'll be doing this all over again in 5 years time.

Exactly, need to take this opportunity to at least have some supporter involvement in the club. Although, we can't turn investors away, they can't buy our club lock, stock and barrell.

Don't think we can turn away investment but what we could probably do with is their skills in running and organising a business.

The problem with supporters trusts is always organisation and representation.

We need to able to have an effective management structure for the club into which we have significant input. To do this we need to get started working on a trust board.

As said above, if we let one investor have an unfetter rein then we will find ourselves back in this position 5 years down the road.
