STATEMENT REGARDING THE FA'S B TEAM PROPOSALS

At the recent members meeting of Trust In Yellow there was unanimous condemnation of the recent proposals by Greg Dyke and the F.A. Commission to reorganise league football by introducing a new League Three containing many B teams from Premier League clubs. Members felt that this would destroy one of the great strengths of English football which is the large pyramid of local clubs.

Whilst it was regrettable that so few English players were in the first teams of Premier League clubs this problem would not be solved by ruining the league system for league and non-league clubs outside the top division. Members also objected to the proposal to allow Premier League and Championship teams to be able to have strategic loans with other clubs whereby they could loan large numbers of players to just one club. It was felt this would just be another way of introducing feeder clubs into the system

Trust members were also very disappointed by the lack of consultation by Mr. Dyke and his commission with fans and their organisations such as Supporters Direct.

Trust In Yellow urges all of its members to show their opposition to these proposals. One way of doing so is by signing the online petition #SayNo2League3 at:- http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/football-association-say-no-to-b-teams

This can also be found by putting Say no to B Teams in your search engine

TRUST IN YELLOW STATEMENT REGARDING THE DEPARTURE OF JOHN COLEMAN

The board of Trust In Yellow was disappointed to hear that John Coleman and Jimmy Bell had left the club and wish to put on record our thanks to them both for the fantastic job they did at Southport in the past few months rescuing a struggling team from a relegation that seemed inevitable at the end of January and producing some of the best home performances seen for many years.

Obviously not being involved in discussions between John and the club we cannot comment in detail on the reasons for John leaving. However, we do feel that the tone and content of the club statement on the website announcing the departure were very unfortunate and ill judged.

The statement showed a lack of the dignity and respect for the former management team we would have hoped for from our club and was also written in a way guaranteed to upset the majority of supporters. At a time when prospects seemed much more positive on and off the pitch this is an undoubted set back.

Members of the Trust will have the opportunity to express their views further at our members meeting on Thursday 15th May and these will be passed onto the club when we meet to discuss the floodlights and the possibility of further cooperation in the future.
