Trust looking for unity in bid to regain league status
Berwick Rangers Supporters’ Trust is calling for a unification between all factions within the Football Club as it strives to bounce back from its relegation from the SPFL.
Rangers will be playing in the Lowland League next season and last week the Trust issued a statement in which they said:
“Following our Football Club’s relegation from the SPFL, The Supporters Trust Board has reflected on these unprecedented events in our history, and we now wish to share our views from our subsequent discussions.
“Work to shape our future starts now, and The Trust is committed to help ensure that current and future generations of supporters will have an improving team to watch.
“Firstly, we are striving to help galvanise the individuals and bodies into a positive and unified force for change. At an individual level, now is truly the time to step nearer our club, rather than away, and The Trust will be working even harder to encourage more supporters to join us ‘to be the twelfth man‘.
“The best way to respect and cherish our successes of the past is to become an active member of The Trust, and help us to shape our future.
“We believe that the new Club Board taking shape, already encompasses people who have the capability and capacity to lead and drive some of the six strands of The Club’s draft strategy.
“ We also feel that, with further appointments in time, new people with similar drive, and other essential and complimentary capabilities, will be added.
“In support of that, we intend to work with The Club Board and The Supporters Club Board to support that draft strategy, as it was presented to us a few months ago, and which the three boards stood behind. In the weeks ahead there will be tripartite meetings with representatives from each group to shape and develop detail of the six strands of that plan.
“Secondly, beyond building a stronger Trust and working with our friends on the other boards, we are bench-testing our own strategy of how best we should invest our funds, and the optimum role and attitude of The Trust.”
The Trust will hold a meeting at 11am on Saturday, June 22 at The Pilot Inn,
