The Supporters’ Trust were disappointed to learn that Trevor Birch is leaving his role as Club Chairman. Over his tenure, the Trust has developed a significantly improved working relationship with the club’s management team to ensure the best interests of the Club, Fans and the Trust were looked after.
This is a particularly frustrating turn of events as the Trust has repeatedly warned of the challenges that our club will be facing over the coming months. To lose the chairman at this time, and the speed with which it has happened, is obviously unhelpful.
It is clearly critical, particularly in the current climate, that a new Chairman is appointed as soon as possible and that someone is appointed who has the skills to meet the challenges that our club is going to face in the coming months. We have stressed this point to the majority owners and we are aware that progress is being made in that regard. In the meantime, the Trust will be directly liaising with the club’s management team to ensure the best interests of the fans and the club are served during this period.
