The Final Countdown

Appeal for final fundraising push

The Trust is appealing for a final fundraising push from the people of York to help save City.

With just a few days to go until the 200,000 of funding needs to be in place, the funds held in the Munby & Scott - Save City Account passed the 150,000 mark. Further donations (any amount) or monies for Loan Notes (multiple of 100) should be sent to the Trust at Bootham Crescent, York (payable to Munby & Scott Save City Account) or can be handed to a Trust official at Saturdays match against Bournemouth.

John Mingay, who has been co-ordinating the Trusts fundraising efforts, appealed:

The supporters of York City are on the verge of owning their own club. It needs a final push over this weekend to help make the dream become a reality. Come along to Bootham Crescent on Saturday and bring a cheque with you to take your place in owning our Club.

Each supporter has the opportunity to own the Football Club through the mechanism of the Supporters Trust. The new Football Club company is owned by the Trust, which in turn is owned by its members. The current membership of the Trust is over 1,400 people, with around 400 people yet to renew their membership since 31 January 2003. Supporters continue to be encouraged to join or rejoin the Trust to help push membership numbers back over the 1,500 mark.

All the monies in the Save City Account either contributed as simple donations or Loan Notes - are earmarked for injection into the new company by the Trust next week. The new company will issue shares to the Trust (i.e. the Trust as a body, not individual contributors) in return for this money.

People can participate in the Loan Notes issue, or make a donation in the following ways:-

By post. Please send a cheque payable to Munby & Scott Save City Account to York City Supporters' Trust, c/o Bootham Crescent, YORK, YO30 7AQ, along with details of your name, address and Trust membership number (if known).

In person to FIND Business Finance, Rowan House, Northminster Business Park, Poppleton, York.

By credit or debit card payment please email with the name of the cardholder, the card number, start and expiry dates, issue number [if applicable] and the amount.

By cash, cheque, credit or debit card at this Saturdays home game against Bournemouth, by visiting the pledge points situated:
Inside the Club shop;

In the corner of the Longhurst and Popular stands.
