Clarets Trust AGM Summary

Clarets Trust AGM Summary

Steve Davis, Burnley FC's first team coach addressed the AGM meeting first and answered questions before the business began. Darren Bentley from the Club was also present. A report on this section of the meeting will be issued very shortly.

The election result reported by letter from Bury For Ever (the official scrutineer) reported no contest was necessary as three nominees were forthcoming for three vacancies. John Ingham , Phil Lea and Peter Pike were therefore duly elected to the Board. Briefings on all the board members will be done shortly with a view to putting these on the website as an Who's Who of the Clarets Trust. David Perkins has also volunteered and it is intended to co-opt him on the Committee at an early date. The Committee will next meet on Saturday 5th August at the Bridge. Agenda and time will be confirmed shortly.

The Official report and Accounts and Auditors Report were put forward by the Treasurer. The main asset of the Trust was 26 Burnley FC shares with 15 to be purchased shortly for the Trust from Clarets Auctions money and the Trust buying another 20. The purchase price per share was �200.

The accounts were accepted and the Auditors were re-appointed for the next financial year.

The Chairman Peter Pike addressed the meeting and covered a number of items.

The key points being to thank those who had set up the Trust and had helped the Trust so far.

He went on to say 'We clearly need more members to take on tasks and not necessarily be on the Committee. It would also help to have some of those living in the Burnley area. The Trust must work with the Club to ensure it is a success in the years ahead both on the field and also as a community Club. We also need to work with the supporters clubs and web sites as all of us that claim to be Clarets fans need to be united in the same aim. We also need to work together with common aims for example helping the Club to improve the facilities for the Disabled at Turf Moor. Glasgow Rangers have launched via their Trust a scheme for members to buy shares by monthly subscriptions in the Club. That is something we should aim to do in the next year and Barry Kilby would welcome such a scheme.

Our next event was hoped to be a Generations event with stars from different eras on a Panel. It is aimed to hold this event in October.

We all want to see a successful season ahead and to win promotion to the Premiership was obviously not easy but also was not impossible. We have a good manager and we should back him and the squad to that aim - promotion could dramatically change things for the Club as we all know.'

Have you heard the rumor that Chelsea is buying Freddy Adu and loaning him to your club for the 1st ½ of the season?
