Supporters Direct

Trust hosts Supporters Direct

BUFCST are delighted to announce that the next meeting of the nationally recognised Supporters Direct will be hosted by BUFCST, most likely at a venue in Sleaford. This is a further indication that the Trust is establishing itself as a professional organisation. With existing links to the various football authorities now established, it is confirmation that BUFCST is progressing towards national recognition as a supporters trust.

The Trust's main aim of course, is to increase the current membership to a level, comparable to supporter’s trusts of a similar size. BUFCST is intensifying its “SAVE THE PILGRIMS” campaign, with forthcoming fund raising events and schemes and renewed pleas for donations and sponsorship, to the many local and national businesses, in the Boston Area...

Save the Pilgrims

Boston United Football Club Supporters Trust stepped up their quest to attract members and donations, which it is hoped will support and possibly save Boston United FC, by handing out leaflets at Saturday's home match with Swindon Town.

The distribution of leaflets entitled "SAVE THE PILGRIMS" is the first stage of a major push by the Trust to highlight the desperate situation the club finds itself in and to increase the profile and membership of the Trust, which if successful, will enable the Trust to follow in the footsteps of many other successful Supporters Trusts, namely Lincoln City, Notts County and Barcelona FC...

Boston Chapel

Rodwell to speak at Trust Open Meeting

The Boston United FC Supporters Trust is delighted to announce that the third of a regular series of public open meetings will take place on Saturday 23rd December 2006 at the Boston Unitarian Chapel in Spayne Lane near to the football ground and adjoining John Adams Way. The meeting starts at 12:30pm.

Presentations will be made by trust vice chaiman Melvin Moxon and club and Lavaflow chairman Jim Rodwell. Mr Rodwell will provide updates on the current situation and will answer questions.

This is the third of several open meetings that will be arranged over the coming season as the Trust aims to expand its activities and membership base ahead of the initial AGM and board elections in Spring 2007.

The Trust will also be selling raffle tickets for a prize draw of VIP tickets to the Lincoln game on Boxing day (by kind donation from Mr. Norman Burden - The Burden Group). The draw will be made in the Sports Bar at 18:00 after the Walsall game.

Trust Statement

Following a meeting between Melvin Moxon, Vice Chairman of the BUFCST and Jim Rodwell, Chairman of BUFC both parties are appealing to all those with an interest in the survival of the club, and especially members of BUSA, to turn up for the home game with Wrexham on Saturday.

A big turn-out on Saturday would prove to everyone that Boston wants a Football League club, with all the benefits that this brings to the area. It will also prove to potential buyers or investors that good attendance's are achievable. This will hopefully encourage potential benefactors. We all need to know it is worthwhile putting in every effort to ensure that the club has a future.

It has always been a consideration that one day the club could be handed over to a fan based organisation, like the BUFCST, who would have a major part to play in the day-to-day running of the club. When that will be is not known at this moment, but it will need to be sure of the support if and when that happens. Without the proof that the desire is still there for a successful club, anyone or any group will not be encouraged to step in.

If it’s a matter of pride then all parties ask you to swallow it on this occasion and give the club a chance of survival. It’s not just a matter of extra cash at the turnstiles on Saturday. That is a poor second to that of sending out a clear message that you want your club to be saved. While we all accept that attendance's have fallen, it is now the time for unity, passion and a desire to see the continuation of Boston United as a Football League club.

The Boston United FC Supporters Trust is delighted to announce that the second of a regular series of public open meetings will take place on Saturday 4th November 2006 at the Boston Unitarian Chapel in Spayne Lane near to the football ground and adjoining John Adams Way. The meeting starts at midday.

Presentations will be made by two guest speakers from the Notts County Supporters Trust. Mr Keri Usherwood, Trust Chair, will provide the background to the Notts County ST  and the challenges, progress and its successes to date and Mr Nigel King, Vice-Chair and Administration, who will focus on the process for the AGM and trust elections and the experience at Notts County.

Trust members will soon receive personal invitations prior to the meeting. However, this is a public meeting and is open to ALL with an interest in Boston United, Supporters Direct and the Boston United Trust.

This is the second of several open meetings that will be arranged over the coming season as the Trust aims to expand its activities and membership base ahead of the initial AGM and board elections in Spring 2007.
