70 people attended the first Annual General Meeting of the Tottenham Hotspur
Supporter's Trust at White's in Paxton Road on Thursday 25th October
The Meeting was called to
elect the first committee to represent the Trust, it having been run by
the Steering Committee for the first six months of it's life.
The Chairman, Joff Wild,
ran through the activities of the Trust to date and how they had acted
in response to certain situations that had cropped up so far (i.e. the
season ticket price rise, the removal of discount in Spurs shops for
season ticket holders and the leaving of Sol Campbell). Joff
outlined the channel of communication that had been opened with the club
and stressed that although the new Chairman of the club - Daniel Levy-
was a Spurs fan, he was not like us supporters and would not be pumping
large amounts of his own money into the team. However, he was a considerate
listener, who would take time to hear what the fans had to say.
Leon Ruskin ran through
the financial side of the Trust's dealings and Mike McKinlay spoke on
the perils of taking on the membership duties.
Then came the elections
for the positions on the committee.
Thirteen people stood for
election and eight were sought for office.
The voting consisted of
256 postal votes and 35 votes at the meeting. No spoiled ballot
papers were received.
The results were : -
Therefore, the elected
members of the committee are Jimmy Brecknock, Anthony Chappell, Peter
Haring, Bernie Kingsley, Trevor Payne, Derek Ridgers, Karen Smith and
MEHSTG would like to
extend it's thanks to those members of the Steering Committee, who put
in so much hard work to lay the foundations of the Trust and pave the
way for the new Committee to take forward.
Also congratulations to
those successful and commiserations to those who were not in the
like to add that everyone should consider joining the Trust as it will
be more reflective of the Spurs supportership as a whole with more
people who join up. It is the fans way of getting things to the
Board and therefore, we believe that it is a useful vehicle for fans to
channel their feelings to the club.
