But every member holds a nominal £1 share in the WST and is entitled to a vote

You get a vote with the WST whilst Spencer co-ops his pals onto the football board.

We all know who “owns” the club. It was always the aim.

Its a football club so any 'success' off-field is pretty irrelevant if that's where it ends. If it doesn't go towards success on the pitch then its pointless.

If you have to resort to 'yeah but they're doing a great job away from the football' and its discussion about a football club, well you're just making yourself look stupid really.
Absolutely spot on.

This is why we need fundamental changes and not allow the same people to sit on both boards at the same time. So the Trust board can properly scrutinise the club board which I don't think it does at the moment

With reference to your last point I am in agreement and would love to see us invest more in the youth teams.
The current situation is however not entirely of our own making (Unless you count lack of promotion as our own fault)as we no longer benefit from the EFL status for our academy and have to sign the lads on as scholars.
The EFL and premier league clubs can poach players from non league at will.

I don't believe that we couldn't find anyone to do the work of the current board but the cost may be something we are unwilling to take on board at the expense of funding the team.
The scholars are picked up as free agents by these bigger clubs as they are not payed by the club.So are free to go wherever they want.

Off fieid success story....

If I'm sitting there this Winter freezing my nuts off. Watching us scrap it out with another bottom half non league team.. Possibly in a relegation battle.
I'll try to remember that... Might make me feel a bit better

Right OK.
So anyone with £1,000 of community shares is an owner whilst it remains in the club. As per the statement below. These members are not paying annual membership fees I assume.

The accounts show £178,000 of shares so we have a maximum of 178 life members (depending on the share allocation) who can be classed as owners.


‘Remember, £1,000 of Community Shares gives you free life membership of the Trust whilst that sum remains in the Community Share account.’

Community shareholders are listed on the wall in the club shop I think.
Look behind you next time you buy a ticket

There is one owner . The WST.
The WST is it's members whether paying annually or through the community share scheme.
Therefore the members have a collective ownership of the club.
The constitution puts the onus on the members to administer the trust and run the club.
