Ten Years of Trust
« on: September 09, 2019, 08:37:09 PM »
Sunday the 25th of August 2019 marked the 10th anniversary of the formation of The Blue & Gold Supporters’ Association (AKA The Trust).  The Trust was formed to provide a vehicle for giving the supporters of King’s Lynn Football Club (now King’s Lynn Town Football Club) a formal involvement in the running of their club.  Sadly, it was very shortly after this date that saw the demise of KLFC as a High Court winding-up order was issued due to an unpaid tax bill of £77,000.
KLTFC is currently riding the crest of a wave and producing some fantastic and entertaining football, and long may it continue.  Whilst The Trust has its own clear objectives, we have recently raised funds in excess of £4,000 towards the cost of ground grading requirements necessary to compete at step 2 football. In agreement with Stephen Cleeve, these monies have been forwarded to the manufacturer of the new turnstile units. However, the current ownership model still does not allow for “formal” supporter involvement in what happens at the Club.  Notwithstanding, The Trust will continue in its quest to meet its aims which are clearly detailed on this website.
The Directors of The Trust would like to take this opportunity to thanks all who have supported the Trust over the past 10 years.  The membership, those who have sponsored the website and various fundraising activities.  Thanks to those businesses who have advertised on the website and to those who have provided prizes for raffles etc. Thanks to those who have supported the monthly Linnets Lotto. Whilst membership numbers have remained steady, it is pleasing to note that very recently we have gained a number of new members.  To you all, your support has been gratefully received.
For anyone interested, details of membership and the Linnets Lotto can be found on this website.
