It would be good to have a strong voice for the fans under the new ownership. As good as their intentions are, it's always a must. I'm just not sure it would be a good look though if some of the individuals who have talked down to other supporters or even tried to cost them their jobs are involved in that set up.
Maybe the ploy is to lie low for a while and let the dust settle. I’m expecting the Trust to set out their own visions for the WST in the coming weeks and months. A re-branding would be a good starting point!

If there are different people at the top with different values and goals, there should be no reason not to get behind the trust.

Actually, it was not created with this aim. Not until 8th June, 2011 did they amend Rule 2 to include:

vi) to maintain a professional Football League club in Wrexham and at the Racecourse ground.
vii) to have at least one Trust nominated director on the Board of Wrexham Football Club.
viii) to raise sufficient funds to buy a stake in the club in pursuance of the above aims.

In March, 2012 the original rules were replaced in full by the Sports Direct model.

In February 2015 the Sports Direct rules were amended to allow Board members to serve an unlimited number of consecutive terms.

The original aim was:

i) To strengthen the bonds between the Club and the community which it serves and to represent the interests of the community in the running of the club.

I think the WStT should now revert to this.

The same question could be posed about all of the supporters groups as their aim in the main appears to be to raise funds for the club, question is will people still want (if able)to attend race nights, quizzes etc when the club under new ownership would appear not to really need the funds?
