The supporters clubs are more of a social thing for fans in that area to get together to support the club and raise funds when necessary. So they will still serve a purpose definately.

As far away from the football club as possible please. They could attempt the world record for meaningless meetings and mandates possibly?

I think the WStT should now revert to this.
So do I.

The trust have the lease on the ground and that provides a degree of security.
It does seem strange that improvements to the ground will have to be endorsed by both the Trust and the UNI, though I can't envisage circumstances where the trust would object.

Do the trust continue with their community efforts, especially with autistic kids and the partially sighted? ( With the football clubs approval)
Do we as a club, sit back and enjoy the ride on the coat tails of Rob and Ryan or do we still raise funds and take an active role in our future?
Who sits on the Honorary board and can represent the club, on a dirty wet night in Torquay or Barrow, Hartlepool or Southend?
Will there still be a requirement for Volunteers?
Will trust / football club membership still have priority benefits?
The future role of the WST needs to thrashed out by its executive and members. The current constitution is now null and void, so a new, more flexible one needs to be created.

I agree that some reflection is needed, and we neither need to rush into something nor be be rail-loaded into something dreamt up by a clique. This has to be opened up, shortcomings acknowledge and addressed, and then move on.

There is still a role for the WST, hence why I will keep my subscription for now. But I do want to see a more open and democratic way forward. The WST cannot fix the world, but it can help Wrexham AFC develop under R&R's stewardship.

As the next responder says they are largely there as a means for social get togethers especially the ones well away from Wrexham. See no reason for that to change but I do agree that fund raising for the club can stop forthwith. No point chipping in a few quid to help out owners who would not miss a few million.
Although there no possibility of it happening this season lets not forget that before the pandemic there were around 200 supporters who went to most away games from all over the country. I was one of them and see no reason why that should change under new ownership.

It's irrelevant and dead, will contain the same clique who didn't like critism.

You can guarantee they'll dish it out with the new owners which is fair, while the cling on's do the usual brown nosing for a few nuggets of information. Often information that's false.

What role with the partially sighted?

Come to that, what role with autistic kids?

I am a Trust member and also I had a season Ticket for the last full season that I could. If I want another season ticket next season, or tickets for any specific cup game, surely my relationship with the club ( not the Trust) will stand me in good stead. I must admit to only joining the Trust to take part in the Big Vote.

Think all Supporters groups have a role to play.WST must adapt to new circumstances and I'm confident it will.
