John O Sullivan came in second and third place for his goals against Forest Green away and at home respectively.

A special mention also to David Fitzpatrick whose wonder strike on Easter Monday came too late to make the voting list.

1. Apologies for absence


2. Matters arising from last meeting

All were covered elsewhere on the agenda.

3. Treasurers report

The Trusts balance currently stands at GBP24439. A payment of GBP1500 has been made to the club for primary school coaching and next match signs have cost a total of GBP600 this season. A cheque for GBP200 is expected from The Champion shortly for the use of Julias photos and the six month fixed rate deposit of GBP15000 has now matured gaining GBP130 interest. Coaches have run at a net loss of GBP411 thus far although most of this was down to the heavily subsidised Tamworth trip back in September.

4. Membership

Membership is hovering at around the 200 mark with not much activity expected at this time of year. E-mails will be sent out to those who havnt renewed and the possibility of increasing the Trust’s presence at either the first home match of next season or at a high profile friendly was discussed. It is hoped the completion of the floodlight project in the summer will encourage both potential and lapsed members to sign up.

5. Floodlights, community coaching, future projects with the club

The Football Stadia Improvement Fund will be meeting on 23rd April where the application for a grant for the new floodlights will be discussed. It was agreed that the Trust must review its expenditure following the completion of this project and then seek a meeting with the club before deciding on any definite future projects.

6. Coach Travel

The coach to Gateshead was filled yet there were only 3 people on the standby list at the time of this meeting despite the bargain GBP10 price for members following Charlie Claphams generous subsidy. Arrangements for Welling will be dependent on results from over the Easter weekend so an announcement will be made after then.

7. End of season awards, arrangements for presentation, etc

The end of season awards have been put on the backburner due to the clubs current predicament on the pitch. The Fan Of The Season award however will be presented at half time on Easter Monday.

8. Fundraising and other events over the close season

Around GBP40 has been raised from Easysearch so far with some of this being carried over from the old webshop. The Easysearch engine is raising around GBP2 per week at the moment and its earning potential is shown by the fact that Chesters supporters trust has raised over GBP3000 in the last 2 years solely from searches made on Easysearch by their supporters. Rob will wear a Liverpool shirt at the first home game of next season if GBP1000 is raised.

9. Any other business

The Trust has received a generous donation of 25 yellow footballs from Alan Drury. It was suggested that these could be signed and used for competitions etc.

10. Next meetings
