Trust run clubs’ successful season?
As this season draws to a close, Scarborough Athletic FC wishes to congratulate those fellow trust run, fan owed clubs who have been successful this season.
Those gaining promotion are:
Stockport County - League Two to League One
Exeter City - Conference to League Two
AFC Wimbledon - Ryman Premier to Conf South
FC United - Unibond One North to Unibond Premier
Commenting on the clubs' successes, Supporters Direct Chief Executive Dave Boyle said:
"It's fantastic to see well-run clubs achieving on the field as well as off it. They have all built their success on sustainable finances and it's important that clubs getting the sums right off the pitch get success on it."
"There's another way to getting ahead in football than having a debt-funded spending spree which might not get any success at all, but will leave a headache for the club in the future. With 40 out of 72 Football League clubs having been insolvent in the last 15 years, supporters' trust involvement is an important way to get some common sense and longer-term thinking into the game."
