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

MINUTES OF MEMBERS' MEETING - THURSDAY 15TH MAY

1. Apologies for absence

Phil, Colin.

2. Matters arising from last meeting

All were covered elsewhere on the agenda.

3. Treasurers report

The Trusts balance currently stands at GBP24465. 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 has been received from The Champion for the use of Julias photos and the six month fixed rate deposit of GBP15000 has now matured gaining GBP130 interest. Sales of the DVD from the players reunion of 2011 continue to generate funds with the function having raised a total of GBP2181 to date.

4. Membership

Bill will be contacting lapsed members in June as this was successful last year in getting people to renew memberships. Once details of the friendly fixtures have been announced arrangements can be made for a table promoting the Trust to be present at one of the home fixtures.

5. Cooperation with the club

New quotes will be given to the Trust shortly regarding contribution for the floodlights as previous estimates received are now out of date. Preliminary work has started on the lights which will be installed in time for the new season. The Trust’s statement issued on the website regarding the departure of John Coleman was largely well received by supporters after widespread discontent about the tone of the statement issued by the club. A further GBP2500 towards community coaching is still waiting on the Trust receiving confirmation about when and where the coaching took place. Following the completion of the floodlight project the Trust wish to meet with the club to discuss future projects. The main aims will be to have a clear goal and to avoid another drawn out scenario such has been present with the floodlights.

6. F.A. Commission Plans

All members present were unanimously against the proposals to introduce B teams into the League structure. A statement expressing the Trust’s opposition will go on the website in due course.

7. Coach Travel

Coaches were run to a total of 15 games last season. The Trust would like to thank Charlie Clapham for subsidising the coaches to Salisbury and Gateshead as well as Arthur and Steve from Elite Travel for their reliable and friendly service. Thanks also to Alan and Phil for organising and running the coaches. Once the new fixtures have been released all coach companies in the area will be canvassed and a weekend trip will be looked into.

8. Fundraising and other events

Several suggestions were made regarding how best to use the 25 yellow balls donated by Alan Drury. These included using them as competition prizes and auctioning them off signed at the Race Night. A suitable location is still being sought for the proposed Buy a Brick scheme and Martin reported that the webshop has raised GBP50 since January. The Trust will also look into hosting a meet the manager session with new manager Martin Foyle.

9. Review of Awards for 2013/14

The Trust will continue to run the Fan Of The Season and the Player Of The Month awards for 2014/15. The players presentation evening following the Easter Monday match against FC Halifax was a success despite being arranged at extremely short notice. It is the Trusts intention to organise a specific awards evening next season regardless of the clubs position on the pitch. The Fan Of The Season award would also be incorporated into this.

10. Any Other business

Alan Scarisbrick reported that former player Darren Brookfield is sadly seriously ill in hospital. All at the Trust wish Darren a full and speedy recovery.

11. Dates of next meetings
