We Own Our Football Club.  This is not a slogan, but an actual fact.  So why not join the growing community of fans who can proudly sing 'We Own Our Football Club' and become a member of Wrexham FC.  For as little as £1 per month, you can truly say - YOU OWN YOUR FOOTBALL CLUB.

The WST believes that YOUR football club should be run in the best interests of the local community. The survival of the club over the last few years has been down to the fantastic support and loyalty our club has received from its fans and members of the Trust.

Being a Member of Wrexham Football Club Trust gives you the opportunity to be part of, and shape, this future.

Why do we need a Trust?

The past 11 years was without doubt the greatest threat ever to the survival of Wrexham as a Football club. The demise of ITV Digital, the collapse of the transfer market and spiralling wage costs have all contributed to the club's debts, but none have contributed to the club being placed in administration on 3rd December 2004 more than the actions of Mark Guterman and Alex Hamilton and others. Of course, the innocent victims in all of what happened were us, the supporters.

There's always been talk of the supporters getting together and exercising our collective strength to influence the way the club is run and to turn back the tide of the club becoming more and more distant from us, the supporters. But until the turn of the century there was no real idea about how to go about this so it would work. The Trust is simply a tried and tested way to achieve this.

So the Trust is just an organisation where all supporters can get together in a very structured way - making it easy for the club to understand what the supporters, as a body, feel about a particular issue and because it can deliver a single message from a large body of people. Although we now own the Club, we should still always be certain that any decisions surrounding the Club and its future are always monitored to ensure no repeat of past 'mistakes',

What or who is the WST?

A Supporters Trust is a democratic organisation of supporters. Our aims are to secure the future of the club, keeping the club with the fans where it belongs. It is not a protest group. Rather, it is the long-term solution for supporters to have a say in the future of their club. It is not just another Supporters Club, but an umbrella organisation;

The Trust is its membership; that is, every single person who has signed a Trust membership form. The Board is just the vehicle by which the Trust will establish itself. They are elected by a democratic election at which any member is eligible to stand for office.

The Trust is an Industrial & Provident Society (IPS) fully regulated by the Industrial and Provident Societies Act and accountable for all its financial dealings and transactions. An IPS belongs to its membership. Literally. Every member owns a £1 nominal share in the Trust. Those shares cannot be traded or transferred. The share entitles the member to a vote; one member - one vote. Each eligible member has the right to stand for election to the Trust Board, to vote in the election of Trust Board representatives and to attend the AGM

This section is intended to give you a quick tour of the Trust, why its here, what it is, how it works, who runs it, and most importantly, what's in it for YOU.

It's not intended to cover every aspect. Wrexham Supporters' Trust, in common with other Trusts, pools its skills. It's made up of willing volunteers and fund-raisers, but also accountants, lawyers, business people and media professionals.

A strong Trust is good for the Club and good for the Community.

What are the WST aims?

The main aims and objectives of the Trust are and always have been as follows:

  • to encourage and promote the democratic and constructive involvement of supporters in running of the club.
  • to strengthen the bond between Wrexham FC and the community it serves and to represent the interests of the supporters and the community in the running of the club.
  • to benefit present and future members of the community served by Wrexham FC by promoting, encouraging and furthering the game of football as a recreational facility, sporting activity and focus for community involvement.
  • to encourage Wrexham FC to take proper account of the interests of its supporters and of the community it serves in its decisions and to seek the views and opinions of the supporters of Wrexham FC.

  

  • to uphold and preserve the tradition and heritage of Wrexham FC, and to secure the clubs long term future in Wrexham.
  • to obtain a commitment from Wrexham FC to provide and maintain facilities for the enjoyment of professional football in the area.
  • to develop links with supporters of other football clubs to further enjoyment for all fans.
  • to raise money to be spent in order to support and achieve these objectives.
  • To be an inclusive democratic organisation that seeks to represent the views of all supporters of the club through open, affordable membership, and consultation and liaison with all supporters and supporters groups, regardless of whether they are members.

Some examples of what has been achieved by supporters at other clubs are:

There are fourteen clubs in England, Scotland and Wales that are currently now owned or operated by Supporters' Trusts. 39 Trusts have directors on the board (not necessarily elected); some Trusts, like Brentford, Stockport County, Chesterfield, Wycombe Wanderers and Lincoln City, have more than one board representative. Another 61 Trusts own shares in their club, which will never be sold.
You can join by downloading and returning the membership form from this website, or by coming to one of our meetings.

What's in it for you?

The Trust exists for the benefit of its members - YOU!!! The aims of the Trust are all about the well being of the club, bringing it closer to the community of Wrexham and North Wales and helping the development of young footballers in the area. By supporting the Trust you support these ideals.

Any money you contribute, through a standing order or share fund contribution will go 100% towards the fight for the long-term future of Wrexham FC, whilst also enhancing the standing of the Trust in the process. The cost of running the Trust will be kept to a minimum and will be met from a proportion of the membership fees. It is democratic - one member gets one vote no matter how much money they give.

The Trust will continue to seek Supporters representation on the Board of Wrexham FC so your voice can be heard. And if you have a reasonable point to make, and persuade other members of the Trust to back your arguments, it could soon become club policy. By supporting the Trust, you will help with the aim that Wrexham supporters will have a significant say in how the club is run in the future. By joining the Trust , you can rightfully claim to own a piece of the Red Dragons. We believe that the Trust, by bringing the community closer to the club will help to pull things together off the field. The enjoyment that comes from following an entertaining and successful team on the field may take a little time but it will surely follow.

  • Rules state that it must be inclusive so that anyone who cares about the club can join
  • The Trust aims are all about the long-term well being of Wrexham FC, bringing it closer to our community and helping the development of football in the area.
  • By supporting the Trust you support these ideals.
  • Any money it receives can only be used toward achieving its aims and will only ever be used for the betterment of Wrexham FC.
  • Your Trust membership makes you an equal part owner of Wrexham FC and your voice will be heard NOW. It is democratic, one member gets one vote no matter how much money they give.

How does the WST work?

The Trust Board will ensure that the business of the Trust is conducted in accordance with the Rules of the Trust and in the interest of the community. The Board can have up to 15 members, including the 8 officers and 3 other elected members. The remainder can be co-opted. The board must have the skills, expertise and experience, which it needs to operate effectively. The press/publicity officer will have responsibility for dealing with the press/media and will be the sole spokesperson for the Trust.

Elected members (i.e. supporters)

Supporters of Wrexham FC run the Trust. These make up the Trust Board. The 12 elected supporter members and four co-opted members can each serve for a maximum of three years before facing re-election. The first of these were elected at the first AGM held in June 2004. Any eligible member over 16 can put themselves forward for election to the Trust Board. If you meet the criteria you can put yourself forward for election.

Co-opted members

Up to four people can be invited to join the Board as a "Co-opted" Director. The people invited in this way are likely to have additional skills that would be useful to the Trust or be representatives of other important bodies (such as Supporter Groups or the Council etc). They will also serve for a maximum of two years, but can be invited to continue.

What do they get paid?

Nothing. The constitution does not allow for any salary to be awarded to Board members unless approved by a vote of the members. The present Board members have no intention of putting such a request to members.

How was the WST formed?

The people who started the Trust at Wrexham borrowed the basic idea from others. Originally named Wrexham Independent Supporters (WINS),at its AGM in June 2004 it became known as the Wrexham Supporters Trust, changing the aim of the group to being fully committed to ensuring the long-term survival of Wrexham FC.

The first club to form a trust in this way was Northampton Town when they nearly folded in 1991/92. But this remained an isolated and little known example until April 2001. Following The Football Task Force report of 1999 it gave birth to an organisation called Supporters Direct.

The people at Supporters Direct set out to spread the idea and provide help to supporter groups. Over 100 clubs now have one, and Wrexham are one of six in Wales.

One major benefit from Supporters-Direct is that we have been able to swap SDideas with other Clubs supporters and it is unlikely that our Trust would have progressed so quickly without their help and support.

From the outset, all fans' groups have been kept informed, and they in turn have actively supported the Trust's work, Wrexham Supporters Association, the London Reds, the Shropshire Reds, the Holywell & District Reds, the Manchester Reds, the Buckley & District Reds and now the Rhos and District Reds, are all involved and are committed supporters of the Trust. All have been united in our fight to save Wrexham FC.

The share entitles the member to a vote; one member - one vote. Each eligible member has the right to stand for election to the Trust Board, to vote in the election of Trust Board representatives and to attend the AGM.

Our constitution has been drawn up by Cobbetts, a law firm which works close with the Co-operative party and the Co-operative Bank. Cobbetts are widely regarded as the country's leading experts in this area. Everything that the Trust does is guided and controlled by its constitution. The rules of the Trust are available for inspection from the Trust. It is also situated on the Trust's web site www.wst.org.uk Alternatively, it can be requested by post on payment of a£2.50 fee (to cover copying and postage fees). The beauty of being an IPS is that it has a written constitution in place that ensures all the administrative and financial details are clearly defined and transparent - a basic essential so that all members can have faith in the structure of the Trust, so allowing them to concentrate on the real work of the Trust, and ensuring that the Trust is a democratic society.

 

  • All actions and conduct regulated by Registrar of Friendly Societies
  • Registrar ensures the Trust and its officers act legally and appropriately in respect of our Constitution
  • The Trust is guided and controlled by the Constitution - based on a tried and test model drawn up specifically for Supporters' Direct by an expert in the field.
  • The Trust belongs to its membership - one member, one share with a nominal value of £1.
  • Shares cannot be traded or transferred nor do they carry any rights to interest, dividend or bonus.
