Following Friday night’s Swans Trust Fans Forum where the trust outlined their stance on the recent speculation concerning other shareholders and the sale of their shares, The Prince of Ginger and East stand drummer Stephen Jones popped to the Swans Trust Match day Pod to give his support to the Swans Trust and back the Trust in their plans to try and increase their shareholding within the football club to 25%.
Steve whose drumming gets the whole East Stand going in song in support of the Swans has been a Swans Trust member for a long time and believes all Swans fans need to show their support for the Trust and become members. Steve said:
It looks likely that there is going to be some change in the club in the coming months and so whilst I am grateful for everything the current board have done, they are not going to be around forever.
The Swans Trust have made it clear that the shares they own will never be put up for sale and knowing that we have a fans group like the Trust looking after the club’s best long term interest is music to my ears.
I would urge as many fans as possible to join the Trust, get behind them as a group and support them in their push to get to 25% shareholding! In the Trust I Trust and the motto for all of our fans should be ‘In the Trust we Trust’.
Getting to a 25% shareholding in the club has been a long term ambition of the Trust as it gives them legal protection in the event of new shareholders wanting to put the club under financial risks and pressure in the future.
“The Trust exists only to look after the best interest of fans and in the best interests of Swansea City long term and so join up and become part of the Trust community of Jacks” commented Steve as he left Trust Board Members Alan Lewis and Viv Brooks before making his way over to the east stand to lead the crowd in becoming the 12th man in the 2-1 win over Manchester United.
Having Steve’s support is great news for the Trust and we are pleased that the feedback from Friday’s Fans Forum has been so positive.
