Members Briefing July 2012

ycwsmallestI Weld y Newyddion yma yn Gymraeg, Cliciwch  YMA

Saturday Stall / Trust Shop

Over the past few months the Saturday Stall has been busy attending different events. They have visited several different schools in and around the Wrexham area, with Wrex the Dragon appearing in all. Wrex has joined them at numerous other events whilst out and about and has won the hearts of many children and adults with his exploits. The Saturday Stall team attended Nightingale Houses Summer Fair; this was a fantastic opportunity for the stall to get out and about and help to support a local charity close to peoples hearts.

Despite battling with the summer weather, they have done their utmost to hold the stall in the town centre each Saturday as well as the WST Turf shop during the week. They will continue with their efforts through the rest of the summer and throughout the season.

For pictures and information on the events that the Saturday Stall have attended please view their blog on the WST site.

Community Shares Update

WST is delighted to announce that it has received provisional assurance from HMRC following its application for entry into the Enterprise Investment Scheme. We plan to present investors' cheques for clearance next week and issue share certificates by the end of July. Please note that tax relief is subject to personal circumstances and HMRC authority to issue EIS certificates. 

Following the issue of WST Community Share Certificates, the Trust is required to submit details of all subscribers who wish to claim tax relief to HMRC for approval. When we issue share certificates, we will ask investors to confirm whether they wish to claim tax relief in order to inform our submission to HMRC. We would like to thank our accountants McLintocks and Supporters Direct for their advice in helping us become only the second Supporters' Trust to achieve EIS status.

For more information on the Enterprise Investment Scheme, please visit http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/eis/part1/1-2.htm

 Co-operative Cymru Conference: Building a Better Wales
Wrexham Supporters' Trust was invited to speak at the second Co-operative Cymru/Wales in Cardiff on July 6th to talk about how it took over Wrexham FC.

Outgoing WST Director Richard Owen told the 150 delegates at Glamorgan University how the Trust was formed in 2002 as an Industrial and Provident Society (a type of co-operative), the journey it went on to keep the Club alive, the war chest it built up to buy shares in the Club and how it finally acquired Wrexham FC in November last year.

Delegates heard about the Trust's many achievements over the last 10 years, including the successful beer-a-week scheme, running the Club shop whilst the club was in administration, and some of the many events and activities it has held to raise funds.

Richard also talked about the Trust's plans for the future, including its desire to return to the Football League, to become a financially sustainable club and to invest in the infrastructure of the club through funds raised by its Community Share Scheme.

WST was one of a range of organisations of who told the conference how co-operatives throughout Wales were helping to rebuild communities and revitilise local economies.

We would like to thank the Co-operative Cymru/Wales and the Institute of Welsh Affairs for providing us with the opportunity to tell our story.

Thank you Richard

The Trust Board are disappointed to announce that our former Chairman Richard Owen has reluctantly decided to stand down from the Trust Board due to growing work and family commitments which were making it difficult for him to attend Board meetings, but we are pleased that he will continue to be one of the growing number of Red Army volunteers helping to rebuild Wrexham Football Club.

The Board of Wrexham Supporters' Trust would like to thank Richard for his hard work and commitment over the last four years and wishes him all the best with his work and young family.

Snowdon

We are pleased to announce that around sixty Wrexham fans took part in the Red Army Walk up Snowdon last Sunday, and completed the climb without any rain! This was again a fantastic effort by all concerned, and raising funds towards reducing the clubs expenditure for this coming season. It is expected that the walk will raise around £5,000.

Once again a magnificent effort were sure youll agree. Well done one and all.

If anyone would like to make a donation in appreciation of those magnificent walkers then please drop your donation off at the club or Trust shop, or post it to WST Freepost

The concert raised over £700. Well done to everyone who supported this event.

Disabled Section

The Disabled Section is continuing to grow, and we are forming new partnerships to follow our line of being a Community Football Club. The Racecourse Community Foundation (RCF) are working with the Trust to continue establishing our links with St Christophers School. The RCF have recently completed a successful ten weeks of coaching at St. Christophers that went well.

WST and Glyndwr University are aware of the position for disabled fans, and we are currently looking at building a sheltered place for fans with disabilities to watch the games.

A group from Greenacres recently attended the Glyndwr University Racecourse Stadium where they had a tour of the ground and met with Andy Morrell for photographs.

 We are committed to enhancing our connections with the disabled community, and several meetings have taken place over the past few months, with the aim to bring together disabled groups to help form Wrexham Football Clubs Disabled Supporters Club. We will soon be holding an open meeting for anyone interested in getting involved.

Wrexham Football Club Oral History

Wrexham Supporters Trust for a number of years have been looking at ways of bringing together an oral history of Wrexham Football Club, to record fans memories of following our club. With this in mind, and following meetings with Glyndwr University, we are very close to an agreement in taking this forward.

We will soon be looking to interview fans, former players, managers, directors etc about their time at the club and following the Robins/Dragons, We will be looking to meet fans of the older generation first, so if you know of anyone who has vivid memories of their time following Wrexham pre-1950 then we would like to hear from you once we have the project finalised.

 

Senior Dragons

It has been suggested that as we now have a Junior Dragons supporters group for our younger members, why dont we have a Senior Dragons for our older members! 

With this in mind we would like feedback from our retired senior members as to the feasibility and popularity of such a group. The idea is for members to meet up for tea/lunch and discuss Wrexham Football Club with fellow fans, and maybe help out in suitable areas of the club or projects such as the Oral History project that we have already mentioned.

Thank you to those who have responded, if you havent already done so, and you like the idea of a Senior Dragons, then why not let us know by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

If you havent yet joined then either fill in the form, or collect an application form from the Club Offices or from the Trust Shop on match Days. You can also join on line at http://wrexham.goldbondlotto.com/

Candidate Profiles

 

 

CANTWELL, JENNY œ Membership Number 2785 

                                                                                                   

Proposed By: Rob Clarke - Membership Number 1212
Seconded By: Stuart Roberts - Membership Number 82

 

I was born in Wrexham Maelor Hospital in 1974, the same year Wrexham FC changed their club badge to the one present on the shirts today.

 

I attended my first Wrexham matches during the 1989-1990 season after my first Racecourse visit to watch schoolboy football gave me the taste for the live game. I soon became a regular at the Racecourse and even after I moved to London to attend university, I still made the trip home on a regular basis for home games. I watched Wrexham at numerous grounds in the south-east and made the memorable trip to Northampton when we won promotion in 1993, a game that goes down as one of my most memorable games ever. The train journey back to London also prompted London based fans to form an independent supporters group ¢‚¬Å“The London Reds¢‚¬ of which I became one of the original members. I followed Wrexham during the historic FA Cup run in 1997 taking in Birmingham, West Ham and Chesterfield and managed to get my local pub in Islington to show the Chester Wrexham game much to the amusement of the locals who all got behind Wrexham!

 

When I returned to Wrexham in 1998 I became heavily involved in writing for the Red Passion fanzine and would regularly be seen selling it on match day outside the Kop turnstiles on Crispin Lane. I had the honour of interviewing Joey Jones, Gary Bennett and Dixie McNeil during this time and thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie of being involved in such an iconic fanzine.

 

In 2002 I moved to Scotland for 8 years, even stating in my interview the reason I wished to live in the Scottish Borders was due to my team being relegated 2 days earlier. Of course this wasnt true as I still made regular trips back home, again arranged around home matches as well as taking in the northern away fixtures. I made the historic trip to the LDV final which is a day I will never ever forget, both for the fantastic result and the fans spirit of togetherness with what was happening off field with Hamilton and Guterman.

 

I returned to Wrexham permanently just in time for the 2010 season to commence and now attend every home match as well as numerous away fixtures. I have been a regular attendee at WST meetings as well as attending numerous WST organised events. I am proud to be one of the 180 brave souls who ventured up Snowdon last summer in extreme weather conditions to raise funds for WST and also helped rally round when emergency meetings and fundraising events were arranged when the future of the club looked bleak.

 

I have a BA (Hons) degree in Social Policy and have worked as a Homeless Officer for the last 10 years, dealing directly with the public providing housing advice and assistance and currently work within the Housing Options Team at Wrexham County Borough Council. I regularly liaise with numerous departments within the Council as well as local agencies within the private and voluntary sector. I can communicate confidently with people of all levels and from varying backgrounds. I see this as a major asset that I can offer WST. 

If successful in becoming elected to the Trust board my main aims would include:

 

  • To strengthen Wrexham Football clubs existing links within the community and continue to raise the profile of the Club

 

  • To form new links within the community. This could involve making contact with local businesses, agencies schools and colleges. I would like to promote our club not only to locals within the community but also to those who have moved to the Wrexham area from elsewhere.

 

·        As a female fan I have always found the match day experience to be a positive one and would like to encourage more female fans to The Racecourse. I would like to look into developing new initiatives to encourage more families to attend as young fans are the key to our future.

 

I feel if I could achieve the above objectives, Wrexham Football Club can be seen by the greater community as an attractive fun and friendly experience.

 


GILBERT, STEPHEN œ Membership Number 124 

                                                                                                    

Proposed By: Simon Johnson - Membership Number 55
Seconded By: Benjamin Roberts - Membership Number 83

 

My name is Steve Gilbert. I was born and brought up in East London until moving here 8 years ago with my partner and our two children.

I am a 48 years old self-employed Accountant, with a very small accountancy practice and most of my clients are from the London area, having stayed with me when I moved up here. I have been in practice over 25 years dealing mainly with sole traders. I also deal with some small limited companies.

My main client is a lighting manufacturer/retailer and I work two days a week for them, running bought and sales ledger and preparing monthly management accounts etc.

In addition to my paid work I have for the past four years or so been Treasurer of Wrexham Olympic Gymnastics Club, which I have found to be very rewarding. When I started we had not long lost our coaches and were putting a new team together, we had one employee and were losing money and gymnasts.

We have four coaches under PAYE now, we have cut overheads where possible, some by doing work in-house myself, and we have a strong waiting list.

We are looking at employing more coaches and expanding our classes to give as many children as possible the chance to participate - and we have produced Welsh squad members and a national champion. I am very proud of what we have achieved there.

My daughter is a member of the competitive gymnastics squad and has represented Wrexham as far a field as Cardiff and Ipswich.

My son plays tennis for Wrexham academy and was part of the mini red team that won the North Wales Aegon Cup this year.

In the past I was for many years the Treasurer of a social club in East London too. I am well used to volunteering and serving on committees and have always found it very rewarding, even though it can be hard work at times.

In December last year I volunteered my help to the Trust committee in anyway that they thought my skills would be useful. They came back to me suggesting I could perhaps help Mark Williams in his role as Treasurer as he moved into his new role with the football club. I exchanged several emails with Mark and had an informal interview with him before the Alfreton home match last season. I am more than willing to help him and the board as they see fit.

As regards the football club itself, I was brought up in Leyton and my Father, though Irish, always insisted that you should support your local team so it was Orient for me. Indeed my first visit to Wrexham was in the away end many years ago. When I met my partner I quickly became aware that her Dad and brother were die hard Wrexham fans and so I began to take more of an interest. We moved up here 8 years ago, my daughter was under 2 and my son just six months old. I made the conscious decision that, just like my Dad, I would bring up my son to support his local team. I started taking him to the odd game two years ago and of course the bug bit me as much as it did him. Last year we got our first season tickets and we have renewed again this year. I joined the Trust last year and my son is a Junior Dragon.

If elected I can only promise to work hard as part of a team and give my all for the Trust. My ambition is to play my part in having a club for my son to bring his son to. I have a great pride in Wrexham, the football club, town and it's people. Supporting my local team is an expression of that pride.

Should I fail to succeed in being elected, my offer to assist the Trust
on a voluntary basis will stand.

 


GRIFFITHS, MICHAEL œ Membership Number 124 

                                                                                                   

Proposed By: Kathryn Slater - Membership Number 2720
Seconded By: Jack Jones - Membership Number 3420

My name is Mike Griffiths, I am 63 years of age and currently live in Llay. I was born in Wrexham, but moved to Richmond in North Yorkshire when I was a few months old because my father was in the Army in nearby Catterick. We returned to Wrexham in 1958 when I was 9 years old, and have been settled here ever since.

Ive been married to Lynn for 42 years and we have two daughters Helen and Kat who are both married, and they have given Lynn and me five lovely grandchildren. Wrexham Football Club is in our blood and we now have four generations of Wrexham fans, my father and I, Kat and her children.

I am currently retired after working for B.I.C.C for 31 years (now known as Prysmian Cables) this means I can now devote my time to the Club I am passionate about, and since June 2011 I have been a regular on the Saturday Stall in Hope Street, Wrexham, and the WST shop on Mold Road selling merchandise with other volunteers who are prepared to give up their spare time for the club.

In my youth I played cricket for Brymbo Cricket Club and later joined Wrexham Cricket Club, playing for them for 23 years. I also played football for various local teams. I also became secretary of my works team at B.I.C.C. for a number of years once Id hung up my boots. 

My love for Wrexham Football Club started back in 1959 when my father took me to watch my first ever match at home to Accrington Stanley when I was 10 years old, I was hooked from that very game and since then have experienced the good times and the recent bad times. One of my fondest memories is the 7-1 win against Rotherham at the Racecourse in the 77/78 season when we won promotion to the old second division.

Even the late great Bill Shankly told of his fondness for Wrexham culminated in a famous night match at the Racecourse ground where in front of a packed ground on a muddy pitch we trounced and humiliated the first division side Newcastle 4-1 in the F.A.Cup, by playing them off the park. After the match in a packed pressroom, Bill Shankly took centre stage and said "This Wrexham side are the greatest third division side I have ever seen". Those words have become legendary at the Racecourse and are indicative of just how great a side that team were.

Like most fans Im not happy with our position in the Conference and would love nothing more than us getting back into the football league, however our main priority is ensuring weve still got a club to support and to make it sustainable. The season ticket sales for the coming season have been tremendous, but we still have an awful lot of work to do and we should never ever let empathy set in.

The Club has come so far in the last 12 months, but I would like to see us promoting Wrexham even more in the community, re-building relationships with businesses to increase commercial revenue and have a retail shop which is the envy of all the other clubs in the conference and league 2. I really do believe the club will now move on and go from strength to strength because weve got amazing supporters who wont settle for second best.

Proposed By: Richard Owen - Membership Number 124

My name is Dave Jones and I am writing this statement to provide you with an overview of my background, and the reasons why I want to apply for a position on the board of Wrexham Supporters Trust.

I am 39 years of age and I live with my wife and three children in Morda, just outside Oswestry. I have supported Wrexham ever since my Dad first took me to my first game against Crystal Palace in the old 2nd Division, when I was 9 years of age. I started watching games regularly from the Kop when I was 15 and have been a season ticket holder for 20 years. I currently hold a family season ticket in the Mold Road Stand and enjoy taking my boys to support the team.

I have worked for the Civil Service for the past 21 years in one of the largest UK Government departments. The first 13 years, I worked in a technical role which involved people management and customer facing roles. The last 8 years I have worked within the IT department, based in Telford, in an internal consultancy unit carrying out Business Analysis on potential areas of IT change. I have developed skills such as Project Management and Process Re-engineering that can be applied in any business.

Ive been a member of the Shropshire Reds since its formation in September 1994 and held the position of secretary for a period of time. I joined WST as a member in the early days where the aim was to unite supporters to stave off the threat to the club and the Racecourse. I have always had huge admiration for the commitment shown by the individuals on the Trust Board during the two troublesome periods that the club has experienced in the recent past. If it wasnt for their dedication then we would not have a club to support today and all Wrexham fans owe a huge debt of gratitude to them. I have always felt that if the opportunity arose, I would like to show my gratitude and help out if I could.

In October last year, I was co-opted onto the Trust Board to work on the development and implementation of the Community Share Scheme. Working closely with other Board Members and with Supporters Direct, I developed an understanding of how a share issue could work for WST and made recommendations to the Board on how the Scheme should be implemented. As a Community scheme, the implementation involved nominating a local charity that would benefit from members investing in the scheme. I have since developed an excellent working relationship between our chosen charity, Hope House and WST as a result of this initiative.

In April 2012, the scheme was successfully launched to members. To date, the scheme has attracted a good level of investment in a relatively short period. I am the first point of contact for all queries regarding the scheme and as well as answering questions from members, I have also answered queries from Portsmouth and Rangers Supporters Trusts who are looking at implementing similar schemes. I feel that we can be proud that we are the flag bearers for such a scheme that many other clubs will try and replicate in the future.

Being involved as a co-opted Board member has whetted my appetite to get involved further and I am therefore standing to become an elected Board Member. The Community Shares Scheme is a key area in WSTs fundraising over the next year or so and there is a role to be played on the Board to oversee this. Due to my experience in this area, I feel that I could perform this role. I also feel that my good organisational skills, relationship management skills and business experience lends itself to the sub groups that WST are looking to set up, in particular the Volunteer Co-ordination, Fundraising and Community Groups. I am also a fluent Welsh speaker, which can help in all areas but in particular the Communication Group.

I believe that his is an exciting time for everyone associated with the club as we embark on our first full season as a fans run club and I would love to be involved to help WST achieve its aim of transforming Wrexham FC into a successful and sustainable community enterprise. A good start has already been made towards this goal but there is still some hard work ahead. Once this has been achieved, I believe the rewards that all fans want to see on the pitch will follow.

Our Club, Our Future.

 


MAINWARING, DAVID œ Membership Number 3865 

                                                                                                    

Proposed By: Alistair MacDonald  - Membership Number 2235
Seconded By: Dave Jones - Membership Number 4533

 

Im Dave Mainwaring and I have been supporting Wrexham Football Club ever since I moved to Oswestry in 1976 and have stuck with them through thick and thin since then.

For my sins, prior to that I was a Crystal Palace supporter until Malcolm Allison destroyed them as Manager so I transferred my loyalties to Leyton Orient as the cream of the Palace players that Allison decided werent good enough for him had moved to Brisbane Road. The first time I saw Wrexham play was when they were beaten 5 - 1 by Palace in 1960! I can remember the Wrexham team included Ernie Phythian, Mickey Metcalfe and Alan Fox as captain. I had the pleasure of meeting Alan when we played up at Darlington last season.

At present I am Chairman of the Wrexham Supporters Federation and a life member of the Shropshire Reds who I joined soon after their formation, and am currently their Secretary. I also am a member of the WST ¢‚¬Å“Saturday Stall¢‚¬ and have also worked in the Trust shop at the Turf during the week. I have been a member of the Trust virtually since its formation; I am looking forward to receiving my share certificate in the near future.

I have been married to Barbara for 43 years have two sons, one of whom is a Wrexham supporter and four granddaughters who I made members of the Shropshire Reds when they were born despite two of them living North Carolina and the other two in Kent!

I am 64 years old and currently unemployed although I do act as a volunteer for the local ¢‚¬Å“Dial-a-Ride¢‚¬ service. As I cant see myself getting a job in the future I am able to devote a lot of time for my beloved Football Club,

My career has centred around both administration and sales and would hope that this experience would make me a useful addition to the Trust Board,

Unlike other Wrexham supporters I havent been a supporter for all that long and will admit to only really starting to attend games over the last few years but last season and this coming season holding a season ticket. Growing up my dad and step dad were football fans and I grew up watching our pub (The Castle Inn, Brynteg) play every Sunday and I enjoyed this immensely.

I like to think that I have been brought up honestly with hard working values. After leaving school aged 16 I found work holding down more than one job at the same time gaining experience in sales and catering. For the last eight years I have worked for the National Health Service as a Senior Clinic Clerk with seven years being in a supervisory role. Whilst working fulltime for the NHS I have studied to gain qualifications such as a Higher Diploma in Administrative and Secretarial Procedures as well as ECDL and ITQ.

I am 28 years old and currently live in Caego, so not all that far from our Racecourse home. I have a happy home life with my son who is four years old, my boyfriend and his little girl who is two and a half. We are all big Wrexham fans and I feel you will struggle to find two more enthusiastic young children than my two. Both children are Junior Dragon members and we cant wait to buy them shirts this year. Although Ive not been a fan through the glory years or through too many of the hellish years I am more than aware of the deep traditions and community values of Wrexham Football Club and the fight it has endured. I would like to thank each board member and all who have sat on the WST board as well as the membership for all the hard work ensuring we now have a OUR football club back. With hard work can make truly make Wrexham FC great again and ensure that there is a club for my children and one day grandchildren to enjoy like we all do.

Being a Trust member has been good fun I have met so many new people and have made some fantastic friends and its this community aspect I would like to see grow. I have enjoyed the last twelve months volunteering out on the Saturday stall and in Turf shop. I have found myself in a fortunate position being part of a dedicated team of supporters that have used our initiatives in getting the WST out there to schools and fetes. Other highlights for me since the takeover would be selling WST scarves by the bag load at the services on route to Brentford in the FA cup, helping out at the WAGs fashion show, running the Sports Relief mile with Wrex The Dragon and walking up Snowdon with the RED ARMY. I am again walking Snowdon this year and by the time of reading we will already have done so. As well as fundraising for the WST and Sports Relief the last two years I have supported Nightingale House Hospice by taking part in the Ladies midnight walk.

If I am elected to the trust board, I feel my honest, hardworking ethics as well as my very good organisational and communication skills see me fit in and get on with the job in hand. The job in hand I see is of building a better Wrexham FC for now and the future. I will also carry on with my role in helping promote the WST and WFC whilst engaging with the local communities through working with the Saturday stall team. With my qualities I think I can assist in the areas pointed out by the board, PR, fundraising and more notably sales due to previous work and volunteering for the WST. With bags of enthusiasm being a ¢‚¬Å“young un¢‚¬ I think I have lots to offer.

Please consider me for one of the vacant positions on the board of Wrexham Supporters Trust.

Proposed By: Terry Heath - Membership Number 38
Seconded By: John Pugh - Membership Number 2514

 

My name is Geoff Scott and I am 59 years old. I have lived in Wrexham my whole life, and attended Rhosddu School, Grove Park Grammar School and Liverpool Polytechnic. I lived in Acton as a young boy and many on here would remember my Grans Newsagents Sweet shop Scotts in Acton.

I am married to Carol and have two daughters Lucy and Alice, who are international and national tennis players. They are both massive Wrexham fans and attend, as many matches are possible.

After a brief flirting with Accountancy I turned to a career in Sales, initially working as a National Account manager with Nestle for over 20 years before moving to a Scottish company called McCurrachs who represent Unilever.

My interests include all sports, history and archaeology. As a young man I was involved with Lex X1 for many years as a player, manager and fundraiser and was lucky enough to meet and become friends with ex Wrexham players such as Sammy Macmillan, Alec Lucas and Graham Whittle. I also have a passion for tennis and am Currently Chairman of Wrexham Lawn Tennis Club.

My passion for Wrexham goes back a long way when my Dad, Harry Scott, used to drop me off in the boys pen and then go on to the Kop with his great mate from his school days Mike Robbins. My Dad even used to be an early dancing partner with Carl Tunnahs mum June.

Early memories include the famous 10- 1 win against Hartlepool and the great Ken Barnes team.

We then get to the 1970s teams. I dont think many of the younger members would believe a team would include 6 or 7 players who were home grown and would later then transfer to the Premier League or of Premier League standard. These players included Bobby Shinton, Mickey Thomas, Billy Ashcroft, Joey Jones Dave Smallman, Eddie Niedwiecki, Graham Whittle¢‚¬¦.. and then to replace them with Dixie, John Roberts, Dai Davies etc.

There are so many memorable games I remember including the games in Europe, Spurs, West Ham, Arsenal, and Middlesbrough.

I hope that gives you a quick feel of my passion for the club. The future is now finally ours. We have to keep it and build for the future so our children and Grandchildren can have what we did in the 1970s.My working and social life has been full of fundraising. For Wrexham, like everybody I have bought shirts, donated to signs around the ground, bought raffle tickets, books, DVDs. I even walked up Snowdon last year with one of my daughters and raised nearly a £1000. The experience was fantastic but the walking and crawling down was a nightmare for my knees!

I organised the Sweet concert at William Aston Hall with my brother Andy and raised about £10000. I hope to do the same again and raise even more.

My strengths are in the sales and fundraising sector, and I believe I could be an asset to the board and to the club. I am hard working and passionate about the future of our club, which I want to see prosper, rise up the leagues and get back to where we belong; playing our football in the Football League.

And as my t-shirt says ¢‚¬Å“Yma O Hyd¢‚¬
