Announcement: Supporters Trust meeting
History tells us that there is nothing quite as formidable as Charlton Athletic fans all pulling in the same direction.
A supporters trust would give the club’s fans potential ownership and a vital say in the future of the club. It would keep the current and future majority owners of CAFC honest and would go a very long way to preserve our history and our future.
Thirty or so Addicks are meeting on Tuesday at the Beehive Pub in New Eltham at 7.30pm.
The address is 365 Footscray Road, New Eltham, London, SE9 2DR. Walking distance from New Eltham station, if you go along Footscray Road in the direction of Eltham (in the direction of the B&Q but nowhere near that far). Buses 160, 162, 321, 286 all go that way, and the pub is close to Sparrows Lane. Car parking off Brentwood Close, which is to the left of the pub.
I can’t attend, and maybe you can’t as well but please try to support this next great Addicks’ fan initiative.
The idea of a Charlton supporter’s trust is not new and I don’t believe this is reactive to the very recent rumours about the current ownership, but what it is, is a fierce reminder.
Remember this. Whilst you and I do our very best to convince our kids to follow the same team that is in your blood, players, managers, owners and directors will temporarily leave their mark on our club, good and bad, and then move on. I have no one else to support, nor hopefully will my son.
What is going on with regards to the owners, did read that the main financial backer was pulling out but not to sure if these are just rumours or do they have any substance?
Rumours Mick, but I believe with good substance. Disagreements may well have been about budget as opposed to cash flow. Yesterday’s signings help support the theory that any short term issues have been resolved though.
Thanks for the excellent write up.
Happy to send you details of the work of the CAST.
