Burnley FC Press Release on Official Website and in Matchday Programme (Saturday 13th December)
Burnley Football Club is to strengthen its ties with the Clarets Trust as a formal link with fans.
The Clarets Trust was originally set up in September 2004 and remains a voluntary, democratic and not-for-profit organisation run by supporters, for supporters.
And following recent discussions with club chiefs, the Trust will now play a bigger role in acting as a conduit between club officials and supporters.
Clive Holt, Burnley FC Director and Clarets Trust life member, said 'We welcome this relationship with the Clarets Trust and look forward to working with them on behalf of all supporters.
"I must also thank the Trust for their continued purchase of club shares, which helps to strength the club and give the Trust both weight and a voice of authority."
Peter Pike, Chairman of the Trust, added: "I welcome this positive move between the Club and the Trust and believe it will be beneficial both parties.
"We all want to see Burnley FC achieve great success on the pitch and in the community as a whole, and working together we can achieve that."
The Trust has three main aims in its constitution: To buy shares in Burnley Football Club to promote supporter involvement, to give fans a democratic voice through supporter representation and to promote Burnley Football Club within the community.
A total of 89 shares have already been purchased, the latest coming recently when Mr Holt accepted the cheque on behalf of the club from the Trust and 'Vital Burnley`, who now host the online version of the unofficial Fanzine, When the Ball Moves` and donate 50% of their profits towards buying shares.
