SUPPORTERS’ plans to take over the ownership of Worcester City will be unveiled at a “very important” open meeting tomorrow night.

Shareholders and members of Worcester City Supporters’ Trust are being invited to Archdales Club, off Windermere Drive, at 7.30pm to see the proposals.

The trust’s directors will present their plans for a community-owned club at what they believe is a “critical time” for the Blue and Whites.

The meeting has been arranged after City’s board agreed to vote on changing the ownership model of the club on Thursday, July 7.

A spokesman from the trust, who have also come up with plans to create a stadium at Perdiswell Park, said: “This is a very important meeting at a critical time in the future of the football club.

“As we are all aware, the club face an uncertain future and many years of loss-making have seen the club's finances cause shareholders concerns.

“This has been the successful approach for many football clubs, such as FC United of Manchester, Lewes, Newport County and Dorchester.

“Community ownership in the form of a CBS would allow the club to seek investors as part of a community share offer.

“It would also allow the club to attract community grants to develop a community sporting facility back home in Worcester.

“More importantly, community ownership means supporters have a say in the running of their football club and all owners have equal rights.”

But the trust insist it is “not a one way-street” and welcome any comments, questions and concerns shareholders might have.

“We will answer all questions in an open and transparent manner and will take on board any good ideas which could benefit the future of the football club,” he added.
