Other trusts take control of their clubs

Trusts in the future

During the past month or so, the supporters of both Stockport County and Rushden & Diamonds have become owners of their respective clubs.  Like York City fans, they are now in control of the destiny of their club.  Below, there are links to the websites and news stories of both Stockport and Rushden.


The chairman of Stockport Countys supporters trust, Norman Beverley, has hailed his group's takeover of the League Two side from Cheshire Sport as "the most significant day in the club's history".

Brian Kennedy's Cheshire Sport - who also own rugby club Sale Sharks and the Edgeley Park stadium have agreed an option enabling the football club to buy the ground back if circumstances allow and revenue raised at the ground will be shared by the two parties. The deal goes through a week later than scheduled due to former chairman Brendan Elwood's previous reluctance to sanction the deal but Beverley said: "It's very exciting. Our aim, the one thing we have to ensure and was uppermost in our minds, is that club have to survive for another 100 years or we wouldn't have got involved. He added: "We're going to be quite a successful football club I hope but it's more important that the club continues to survive. We want the people of Stockport to support the club financially and emotionally. It's the most significant day in the club's history since the formation of Stockport County as Heaton Norris Rovers in 1883."
