Supporters' Trust meet again tonight
Tonight at 7.30pm the 2nd Supporters' Trust meeting takes place at the Charlton Conservative Club (51 Charlton Church Lane). Please go along if you cna make it. Journalist and radio summariser Tony Hudd and former AFC Wimbledon Chairman Kris Stewart as well as a representative from Supporters' Direct
will be there to answer questions.
Over the weekend husband and wife supporters offered their whole shareholding of 524,894 shares in the club to a new CAFC Supporters' Trust as a proxy vote. This is an incredible act of generosity. The supporters wished to remain anonymous but said: "My motive is simple. While, in my view, my shares now have limited economic value they can regain meaningful value if they can be combined with significant voting proxies and/or share donations from other shareholders (large and small) with the aim of empowering supporters collectively with a permanent and independent voice with the owners of the Club, whoever they may be."
It is thought that around 20% of CAFC shares are held by individuals outside of the PLC, and any future Supporters' Trust would look to gain as proxy as many shares as possible to be able to exercise real influence. Without a doubt I will happily offer my shareholding in the club as proxy to any future Trust. Good luck tonight fellas.Information:
