Why would you encourage fans to join the Trust?  The Trust is nothing without its members. Get involved and have your say.

What is your aim for the Trust over the next 12 months?  Coming out of Covid, there will be many decisions the club has to make which will have an impact on supporters – ticket prices, fans returning to the stadium, how we get there, do we wear masks, buying food and drink on the concourse etc. We will ask members what they want and discuss all this with the club.
