I would of thought the supporters trust should have some sort of a nice little cash chest with taking the refreshments,ground rent and the blues bar.
These are there to prectect the long term of the club and whiles mr swann is allowing trinity to enjoy its best years one day this will stop(That aint a dig or owt just money will always end). at this time i thought the set up of the trust was to take over and them already owning the ground would place you in a better posistion than Swann owning it.

Just a opinion

Bostonshire,

You mistake the supporters club with a supporters trust.

The supporters club was originally set up to raise money for the football club at a time when the football club were struggling financially. It was agreed at a later date that the supporters club should buy the ground as they were in a better long term position.

They are merely a members club and as with many of that ilk are currently struggling to turn a profit in the current climate. They are also not in a position to support the club financially. All money made by the supporters club on matchdays goes directly into paying their running costs and not those of the football club. This is why Peter Swann is trying to buy the ground for the football club.

There is no mandate in the supporters club that states they must pay x% of profit to the football club or even one that states they need to support the football club in any way.

Its what is known as a f***ing mess.

Did Trinity really only attract 1200 fans today? Seriously??

They really are shit, aren't they?
"1,193 home/neutral/away in home areas and 844 away"

3307
Minus 844 away fans = ?

Whiles i support Boston i also support football in lincolnshire as a whole. Yes they are a rival which i hope Boston win everytime they play but as a club i wish them long term stability as i do every other club up and down the country and engaging with fans on there team,club etc is all part of that.

To be fair if they provide you with a ground for 10k a year thats not bad support .   Who pays rates ,ground maintainace etc ?
Shame to lose the ground to private ownership if it can be avoided .

Anybody know if Peter Swann has any intention of developing or selling the ground to a third party once he gets ownership of it and GT has their shiny new ground? Also, do GT get any of the profits of any such development, as Northolme must be worth a few bob...?!  :-[
