Trust Members’ Evening

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

At last week’s AGM we talked about an event we are planning to hold next month. This would be an informal get-together for Trust members one evening (or possibly on a Sunday afternoon) to give you all the opportunity to set the future direction of the Trust.

The evening will have a more interactive format than we have at our AGMs, so instead of structuring it around a presentation and Q&A session we’ll pick 3 or 4 topics and have an exhibition stand manned by a couple of Trust board members for each one.

The topics for this event might be things like “Fundraising”, “Community”, “RRFC Governance”, but we’d like to find out what you’d be interested in talking about. Scroll down to the bottom of this page and let us know!

Sheffield Wednesday Sues Fans!

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

This is quite a worrying story about a Sheffield Wednesday supporter who was being taken to court by the club he supports for answering a question truthfully!

Sheffield Wednesday and Manager Brian Laws Sues Fans!!

Since then, the Sheffield Wednesday chairman has been charged by the FA for the derogatory comments mentioned in that article, which he made during a press conference. Manager Brian Laws has also denied being party to the legal action.

A petition has been set up to request that the legal action be dropped. Apparently the club have now dropped the case but have refused to pick up the tab for the fan’s legal costs. Adding your signature to this will hopefully keep the pressure on them to do the right thing.
