Re: Shares for sale in Trinity? : Sat Dec 03, 2022 1:17 am  
This is an intriguing and sensible idea.
I remember us (Hull KR) doing a "marquee player fund raiser" at the end of 2019 for the start of the 2020 season. Just before covid. It was fans only initiated with an "initial" target of 100k, it raised about 7.5k which fell flat on its face :shock:.
Wakefields proposal sounds a lot more bang for your buck though to be honest and if you've done 5k in 24hrs that's actually very promising, genuinely hope it goes well as the sport needs lifting in general with stronger clubs all round and let's face it the whole comp needs to bridge the top to the rest.
I do kinda shudder to think where Hull Kr were 3 years ago to where our plans are moving forward from our news yesterday, lightyears apart.

Thanks for that.

Two thing, I can’t confirm those ten application but I’m pretty sure, I’m certain of at least one as that’s me :D

Also at present that are just applications not hard cash so early days.

Sorry make that three. The club couldn’t in many respect have picked a worse time to launch this considering the economic climate, yet overall it had to be now with so much positive development going on. It will be difficult for people, even for those like myself for whom £500 is usually an amount of money easier to find than at present. So I’m hoping personally that as things hopefully improve more people will eventually join what is a fairly open ended scheme.

I sent my application this morning, and received acknowledgment email from something called Jotform. Is this a company acting on behalf of Trinity, or are Trinity doing their own administration. One has to be careful these days with online money transactions.

Jotform I believe is a site to submit papers applications etc. I had to do one recently for some work I did. The form for me was about HMRC there were no issues and may tax was deducted correctly

I checked on Jotform.
They encrypt the data you put in your form. So it's secure in transit.
They use a payment provider, like World pay or PayPal, so they don't store your payment details
And they are PCI compliant which means they are audited and approved to handle sensitive data.

So it looks like JM has chosen a reputable way of doing this.....as you'd expect for someone in his line of work I guess.

Thanks PopTart and RW&B for the information, I also just received an email from someone called John, saying thank you, all legit, never doubted MC or JM, I’m sure it’s information others on here will appreciate and feel confident about the whole share scheme.

A lot of people weee interested in a “buy a brick” for the new stand and vented frustration when it sounded like there wasn’t one.

This scheme is almost the same sort of thing but with some better benefits, hope they take it up

No problem Dunk.
I would have had the same questions so glad you asked them so I could check them out before clicking on it.

Sounds really good.
I will be investing at least £500, possibly may stretch to the £1000.
Excited to be involved further into the club tbh.
Up the Trin.

Do it on-line!!!

I can't see names or amounts but it's a real buzz seeing the numbers of applicants increase, I feel like Terry Wogan doing 'Clubs in need' :D
