2. Minutes of last meeting and matters arising

Congratulations were due to Ben Highton who completed the Southport Half Marathon in 2 hours 19 minutes raising money for the Trust.

3. Treasurer's Report

The Trust's current available funds stand at £29,670.34. A large proportion of these funds will go towards the Trust's contribution to the floodlights project with the exact figure yet to be determined. The £15,000 in the 30 day notice savings account with Cambridge & Counties bank earned interest of £104.79 to 30th April.

4. Membership

August is the month when the majority of memberships are due for renewal so it is expected that the next month will be a busy one. There will be leaflets handed out during the month promoting the Trust.

5. Future Trust Events

a) Cricket Match

The Trust has a team of 12 to face Churchtown CC. Fundraising will take place for Queenscourt Hospice and members of the Trust team are asked to wear Southport shirts.

b) Players' Reunion

The Reunion is now just a couple of weeks away and most arrangements have now been finalised. The training sessions run by Richard Brodie have been extremely popular and it is positive that the event is bringing so many fans together. A DVD of the match will be produced and available to buy. All 140 tickets for the Grandstand Bar were sold in 4 days where there will be a Q & A session with a selection of players and a quiz.

c) AGM

The Trust's AGM will provisionally take place at the beginning of September. Positions on the Trust Board will be advertised in the run up with up to 12 people permitted to be on the Board.

d) Next season’s programme of events

The response from supporters has been excellent with the programme set to get underway with the Meet The Manager session on Saturday 1st August. The evening of Saturday 5th September will be a tribute night to Mark Heaton and Howard is liaising with Mark's family with regards to arrangements. The Race Night hosted by Tony Adams will take place on Saturday 10th October.

6. Coach Travel 2015/16

Quotes have been received from Elite, Alfa and Vision out of 10 companies approached including some suggested by supporters. These quotes will be scrutinised with the aim of offering the best possible price to supporters. The coach to Macclesfield is already half full and a £100 donation has been received towards the cost of this trip. Also mentioned was the need to keep supporters better informed this season with regards to cancellations etc and the implementation of a more simplistic pricing structure.

7. Other Trust activities

The next match signs will continue in their current format for the time being although a review of their effectiveness will hopefully be held in the next couple of months.

8. Relations with club

The club's AGM takes place on 30th July and a meeting will be sought with Charlie Clapham afterwards to finalise the Trust's contribution to the floodlights project. Following the long awaited completion of the floodlights the Trust will hold a discussion with members over future projects.

9. Any other business

The Trust are delighted to welcome Howard Birch onto the Board and are keen for any other supporters who wish to get involved to get in touch or come to a meeting. Richard Brodie will be sponsored by the Trust for the forthcoming season.
