Trust Board Minutes – June

The Wycombe Wanderers Trust Board recently met for their monthly update meeting.

Finance:
Mark Burrell led an update on the financial position of the club which is under close scrutiny, with our balance sheet being in its best position for some time.

Share Scheme:
Marketing ideas were discussed (more news on this soon!) We have now raised £726,000 from 306 members over 5 years.

Sales Day:
The “ra ra” day had been very positive as well as energising for the office team. Sales amounted to several thousand pounds, with the potential for more as leads are followed up. This exercise is likely to be repeated each month.

Other Club news:

The Kukri contract had ended and the new kit, manufactured by O’Neills, will be launched on Sunday 10 July.

1650 season tickets had been sold to date, against a total of 1800 last season.

Volunteering:
This summer, a number of our volunteer fans are once again carrying out various maintenance tasks at Adams Park – gardening, painting, seat cleaning and general tidying up – saving the Club several thousands of pounds.

Some of the work is being undertaken by fans who regularly help out on weekdays, but we are also planning to have a big team working on Saturday 9 July, from 9.30am to 4pm, and we are looking for more volunteers to help on this day. Tools will be provided, as well as a sandwich lunch, and the times can be flexible if you cannot make the whole day.

If you can help, or you would like more information, please contact me at: john@wycombewandererstrust.com or on: 01494 441145.

A statement on the Club’s position re the EFL Trophy had been released and is now live on the Trust and Club websites. We had voted in favour strictly on the basis that this is a 12 month trial, is commercially sensible for us and is not a pre curser to Premier League B teams playing in the EFL. The views of the Fans Council will be sought at the end of the trial.

Terry’s badge stall will operate again next season, with badges in a new design.
