Some on here have mentioned the formation of a Supporters Trust and Supporters Direct. Some of us have been thinking of this for some time but in view of the current circumstances I think it appropriate that we move things quickly.

We have arranged a meeting for all fans of Wakefield Trinity (Supporters and Shareholders alike) for Tuesday 18th January 2011 at 7.30pm in Cats Bar.

The purpose of the meeting will be to explore the establishment of a Wakefield Trinity Supporters Trust which will be an all inclusive organisation and affiliated to Supporters Direct who we have already met and who will be in attenance at the meeting.

This in NOT another Supporters Club and its up to YOU whether you want it or not because it will be YOUR organisation and YOU will be needed to be part of it and make it work.

Further information will follow.

As far as I'm concerned its for the fans, its nothing to do with the Board of Directors.

The best way forward for the club is for such a Trust to have a significant shareholding in the club and a seat on the board, in partnership with someone with millions to waste if possible, or run without spending beyond our means, and if that means life in the Championship for a long time so be it.

If work commitments allow, I will be at this meeting.

That's the aim - share ownership and Board representation.

I've been present to two meetings and some good dialog was past but I must admit I felt out of my depth,

when dealing with the issues mention it will not take away the fact that the club needs £500 k

and the accumulation of shareholders to make of voice isn't going to change things at the club.

we need a new investor

I agree, not against the good intentions but surely now is the time for action, we can talk all we want but if the money isn't found we wont have a club?

having a voice on the bod should influence the decision making and put new ideas up for consultation but they have to want us on or they can just ignore what is being said.

every business wastes money in some direction and a tighter control of this would make us more viable, that would stop the leakage but the tanks empty and needs filling
