Next Steps

The Board will now work with our legal advisors and the club’s advisors to finalise the necessary legal documentation to conclude the surrender of the lease to be replaced with legally binding covenants. In addition, the Board will also register the rule amendments with the Financial Conduct Authority. We anticipate that this work will be completed early in the New Year.


The Board would like to place on record our sincere thanks for the advice from our legal advisors, Taylor Wessing, and for their expert guidance regarding this matter. In addition, the Board recognises the important role played by the Football Supporters Association and Anthony Collins Solicitors for their advice in the amendments to the Trust Rules, and for Mi-Voice who have managed all SGM notices and voting on our behalf.

We would also like to thank our property advisors Huw Davies of Crossways and Steve Davies, and place on record our gratitude to Rob, Ryan and the Club for their support and understanding throughout the process, including their agreement to obtain Kings Council opinion.

Finally, we would also like to thank the members for participating at the SGM and taking the time to vote.
