One Club One Vision

5 March 2015

In their letter to current Season Ticket-holders this week, Exeter City Interim Chairman Julian Tagg and Exeter City Supporters’ Trust Chairman Laurence Overend took the opportunity to outline their joint vision for the future of Exeter City Football Club.

To make Exeter City an outstanding community-owned club, playing football at the highest sustainable level.  Underpinning this vision are six commitments:

• To grow the Trust-ownership model
• To promote sporting excellence
• To develop homegrown Academy talent
• To engage with our members, supporters and the wider community
• To deliver viable financial performance as part of an integrated business plan
• To develop first class capabilities – people, premises, pitches, pride

Julian Tagg said: “Whilst it is always sad to have to lose a talent like Matt Grimes his recent sale to Swansea City is a great example of this vision in action.  Matt has been part of the Academy since he was 10, his silky skills in the first team have entertained us for the past two seasons and now the revenue from his sale will be reinvested wisely across infrastructure, the Academy, the pitches and the first team.”

Laurence Overend said: “The challenges of running a viable, sustainable football club outside of the Premier League are widely documented.  It’s certainly not easy and it’s definitely a work in progress but we believe that our community-owned model is the right one.”
