Community Is The Way Forward

April 18, 2011

IN these tough financial times, football clubs are suffering more than most ; sponsorship revenues are becoming increasingly harder to secure and balancing the books is even more of a priority as the spectre of good governance, at last, hovers above like a sword of Damocles – mainly in the form of HM Revenue looking to be paid.

So it’s pleasing to note that an SPL club is looking to go forward under the banner of sustainability rather than the cloak of economic meltdown.

St Mirren FC board members Richard Atkinson and Chris Stewart have launched an ambitious plan to turn the Buddies into a Community Interest Company (CIC) – a model followed by Clyde FC and Stenhousemuir FC.

Good news and it’s a move that the Sonstrust supports.
