I can’t imagine there’d be a problem with a group of fans putting £50 each x 10 people chipping in together and nominating one or two people to be available for shareholders meetings etc.


Me neither. I might be seeing JM today, yes I'm that important, I will ask, it's something I'd certainly never thought of, he may have. The only issue I can see is the logistics of it, but all can be overcome.

What sort of logistics Vasty? It could even be arranged behind closed doors and no one would be any wiser. :lol:

I would think only the name on the share certificate would receive the benefits so like the lottery syndicates you will need an agreement signed by each so no confusion.

I agree Scarlet.
Effectively you'd be giving money to have one person represent you.

And just to be clear, you are doing that with people you don't know on here.
If people want to get together and do it privately then why not. It's not a club decision as they will get one person's details.
But I'm not doing it.

If say all 10 of you wanted to attend the AGM, then logistically that's not possible, ditto 10 lots of incentives, come on Jinjer :D . However as a private syndicate with one named shareholder then that's fine, sort it out amongst yourselves, I wouldn't want to discourage anybody. You could nominate any of the 1o to attend meetings as a proxy, so even thats not to bad. :thumb:

Ok, Dunkirk and others, hopefully the on-line will be up and running today.

I'll post a link when I get the nod. It is fully secure.

Surely, the benefits could be changed each season or draw lots for who attends ?
The named shareholder couldn't be easily changed but, lets face it, in the grand scheme of things, the shares are a "gift" to the club.

Not sure I'm with you.

The roll of honour is a one name only, and the hospitality as far as I know is twice for just one person. The events could be shared.

However much everyones money is welcome we can't dilute the Members Share too much, at the end of the day you are paying for the right to be a non voting shareholder. So there has to be an element of exclusivity, if nothing else it's not fair on those stumping up the full amount. It's not trying to be elitist but this is not a begging bowl request, there are some serious benefits, notably the AGM where you can question the BOD as deeply as you wish, you are an actual minor shareholder. So there has to be a line drawn.

I've past it on to JM as I have little to do with how it functions tbh and he said he'd have a think. But for now, it's very much a single shareholding, but how you fund that is up to you.

I'm trying hard here to help so please don't think I'm being dismissive. Too many £500 is out of the question and I get that I really do.

However there are plenty of alternatives if you do want to help but can't afford that amount, Squadbuilder, 1873 lottery and even Trinity TV, it all goes in the same pot and is just as gratefully received.

Finally we won't sell all the share in one go, so this will run, possibly for years, so the chance will always be there in the future, minus the signing of the steelwork for obvious reasons.
