CHAIRMAN Steve Goode has issued a rallying cry to fans and shareholders ahead of the meeting set to shape Worcester City’s future.

Club directors and the board of Worcester City Supporters’ Trust – the umbrella organisation that has overall control of the homeless outfit – will put options forward at The View, Worcestershire County Cricket Club tomorrow (Thursday, 7.30).

Warriors co-owner Colin Goldring last week confirmed a move to Sixways, which would have included a takeover of fan-owned City, had been discussed but said talks had since ended.

Worcester News understands the second option would see City remain fan-owned and potentially move to Claines Lane, the Worcestershire FA-owned site currently the subject of delayed redevelopment work.

Goode, who along with trust vice-chair Julian Pugh declined to comment on the options last week, remained tight lipped on what would be put forward, explaining both club and trust wished to lay out proposals in full on the night.

“We want people to come along, listen to what the club board and trust has been doing over a number of months and take the opportunity to have their opinions heard,” said Goode.

“The whole point of this is that we are fan-owned, it is the fans who are going to give us their views and we will act on them.

“We want people to show their interest in the club, it is important we see faces there so we know people want this club to be successful.

“If you have any interest in Worcester City you need to be there if you can. If you don’t have your say and we go another way you cannot moan, you need to tell us what you want now rather than later.”

Asked why he had declined to comment on the options, Goode continued: “We want to tell people what is happening at the meeting, I don’t want to put ideas or thoughts into anyone’s head before they attend.

“They need to be there to listen to what we have been doing and give us guidance.

“We are trying to save our football club, that’s the reason I got back involved and this is a chance for the supporters to let us know what they want.

“I was disappointed the information got released and if people attend the meeting they will know the whole truth.

“We have spent a lot of time trying to get options on the table and it was disappointing for it all to come out the way it did.

“It would have been so nice for our supporters to turn up on the night and get full picture of what we have been doing behind the scenes – the board and the trust.

“We have worked damn hard to get to where we are now, this hasn’t come about overnight, we have worked for months to try to get this great club back to Worcester.”
