DEBATE ON THE FUTURE OF NON-LEAGUE FOOTBALL

Jesse Norman MP secures Parliamentary debate on the floor of the House of Commons on non-league football

Jesse Norman, MP for Hereford and South Herefordshire, has secured a debate on the floor of the House of Commons on the 4th September focusing entirely on the Future of Non-League Football [link: http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/backbench-business-committee/news/backbench-debate-announced-for-1-4-and-8-september/]

Jesse has himself seen what happens when football clubs arent owned and run properly, and when leagues and governing bodies cant or wont intervene, having witnessed the slow and painful decline of his local club, Hereford United.

Jesse is hoping the debate will cover:

The Football Association and the Owners and Directors Test; how inadequate it is particularly at non-league level, where the policing of clubs is so difficult.; The role of coops and supporters trusts • The role of HMRC ;The Football Creditors; Rule; Financial viability of football clubs, particularly those that have recently been relegated; Transparency of club ownership; The work of the Culture, Media and Sport select committee on football governance - and the Governments response

The Club has been subject to relegations, ground closures, and a boycott in place for several weeks from the near 1000 strong Hereford United Supporters Trust and its membership under its now former owner, Tommy Agombar, who finally failed the FAs Owners and Directors Test [link: http://www.worcesternews.co.uk/archive/2014/08/15/11411057.Bulls__Agombar__forced_to_quit_/?ref=arc]

The debate is important because it focuses on an area of non-league football where Supporters Direct has made significant strides since it was formed in 2000, but which often suffers through lack of attention in the mainstream media.

Perhaps you could even pop in and speak to your local MP at one of their regular surgeries, usually held on Fridays in the constituency.

TRUST IN YELLOW MEMBERSHIPS

Ahead of the coming season, Trust in Yellow is looking to recruit new members and renew existing memberships.

About to enter a ninth season since forming in 2006, the Trust continues to work on behalf of Southport supporters and represent the interests of fans and members alike.

From encouraging greater supporter-involvement by arranging events such as the recent Meet the Manager with Martin Foyle, the Trust also meets to discuss issues with representatives from the club’s board and has a growing involvement in the community.

In every season since it was formed, the Trust has run coach travel to the majority of Southport’s away matches. The Trust will provide travel to every match where there is enough demand, and having taken steps to arrange a smaller coach when needed, fans should again be able to travel to most away games this campaign.

Last season, the Trust sponsored the club’s primary schools coaching initiative, providing local children with coaching from first-team players as part of a commitment to the community.

And with the campaign to get new floodlights progressing, the Trust is looking forward to pursuing new ideas and fresh initiatives as the season develops.

Members are the very fabric of the Trust and memberships are essential to ensuring the Trust continues to run successfully.

In order to give more fans the chance to discuss what the Trust does, there will be a table set up outside the Jack Carr end of the ground ahead of the opening match of the season against Forest Green Rovers.

So if want to talk about Trust matters or have any suggestions about the Trust going forward, please come and visit the table.

A leaflet containing the latest monthly members’ newsletter will also be distributed, providing fans with more information about what the Trust does. The leaflet is available to download HERE.

A range of memberships are available and run for 12 months. An adult membership costs £10, under 16s are £5, a family is £20 and a corporate membership is £100.

Membership forms will be available from the table on Saturday, or fans can join online HERE.

And if you’re not at the Forest Green game, the Trust office, located next to the club shop, is open at every home game, so please come and see us.
