AFC Wimbledon match is Supporters' Trust night
Exeter City Football Club is delighted to announce that manager Paul Tisdale has re-joined the Exeter City Supporters' Trust.
This vision, which is closely aligned to the club’s strategic plan and its ambition for Championship football reflects our desire to be a Supporters’ Trust-owned club, a financially stable club and a club that is at the heart of the community.
It is a vision which embodies our ‘We own our football club’ strap-line.
The City manager is urging supporters’, who haven’t signed-up to the Trust to do so and be part of the ‘We own our Football club’ ethos.
He said: “The idea that we own our club is unique.
“It brings a collective group of people together that care for Exeter City myself included.
“I would encourage all supporters’ to either join the Trust or renew their membership like myself because this is a chance to become part of the clubs future and help the team achieve success on and off the field.”
Tisdale has now renewed his membership with the Trust and is looking forward to being part of a club which has one of the largest Supporters’ Trusts owned clubs in the Football League.
Tisdale said: “The Trust is vital in terms of the security and future of Exeter City Football Club.
“I believe that the trust brings stability which allows the club to move forward as one.
“A Supporters’ Trust run club brings decisions to those who have the clubs best interests at heart, the supporters’.”
The Exeter City Supporters' Trust has contributed in excess of £1,200,000 to Exeter City since the Trust took over ownership of the club in 2003. At present, the Trust contributes on average £110,000 a year to the football club, and every penny contributed to the club, is a penny towards Paul Tisdale's playing budget.
Join manager Paul Tisdale in signing-up to the Exeter City Supporters' Trust and supporting the team, starting with next Tuesday's home game against AFC Wimbledon.
Tuesday's evening match against AFC Wimbledon will see two Supporters' Trust owned clubs compete at St James Park. With both clubs having the same ethos in terms of being owned by there respective Supporters' Trust it seemed appropriate that we celebrated this.
The AFC Wimbledon programme will include an in-depth feature on the Exeter City Supporters' Trust and the chance for one lucky programme buyer to win a signed Exeter City club shirt.
