Apologies: Phil Carder


Ben Kelly has announced that he has decided to stand down from the committee due to issues with travelling.


From the previous minutes Martin advised that a framed certificate had been produced for Bernard O’Malley.


Due to Phil’s unavailability, there were no updates on finances

5 race sponsors guaranteed, Alan S to talk to Elite coach, 2 or 3 other companies discussed as possibilities.

Ballot results – following the decision to go ahead with a long term project, we have been informed by Charlie Clapham that the club would prefer to go down the floodlight route. The club has suggested a meeting on 2nd October where Charlie will provide quotes and details of grants available.

Four members to attend – subject to availability, Alan S, Phil C, Bill, Martin.

The club has also asked if the trust would be willing to sponsor a game at a subsidised rate, but the board thought the money would be better spent going towards long term projects and would decline the offer.


Players re-union – trust to organise with help from Geoff Wilde, Michael Braham and the club. Three dates have been suggested in 2011 – September 8th/15th/22nd and the club to check dates and book the venue. Event open to both league and non league players plus a limited number of supporters (given 130th anniversary, suggested 130 limit).

In the meantime, Trust to push standard moneyraising such as pledges, webshop, membership and goalden lottery.
