Following a series of discussions between Chorley FC and the Supporters Trust, a deal has been struck that will see both parties working together in a bid to further the ambitions of the Club.
The move sees Chorley Supporters Trust make an initial investment of half the ‘Fan Ownership Fund’ into Chorley Football Club. Trust chair Dave Tindall and board member Chris Blackburn will join the Football Club board as full directors.
We have been talking to the football club for some time now about how we can work together. This is a great place to start, and where better to continue working things out than around the boardroom table? – Dave Tindall (Chair, CFC Supporters Trust)
The Trust will become a shareholder in the club. Further details will be released once they’ve been finalised.
I’m delighted that we’re going to work in partnership with the Supporters Trust to maintain the momentum generated over recent seasons. The football club has gone from strength to strength on the field and our community profile is very strong. We recognise that David and Chris bring strong business skills to the board and we’re keen to start working together – Ken Wirght (Chairman, Chorley FC)
*To find out more about the investment or to get involved with the Trust, their next meeting is in the Victory Park social club on Wednesday, February 6 (8pm).
