The facts are that the Trust said that the decision is based purely on a financial basis. The Youth presented them with a viable option with a self funding option which was approved by the Football League.
The Academy would of been self funding and no cost to the club, and still they said no. There seems to be a bigger agenda and the zyouth would of been cut no matter what.
The Trust said prove 3 months funding and it would be fine; we showed 6!
has wasted a year. Surely he's been given quality coaching for a year and will have benefited from that. The centre has been closed, which is a sad day, but for very sound reasons to help avoid... more
Just received the news as well. Absolutely gutted. Will have to tell my son, who has played for the club for 4 years and been a season ticket holder for 10 years, that the C of E is no more again. We ... more
There will always be financial exposure to the club. Your point makes it quite - everything but £120k funding in place - so the club signs up for the Academy and the funding falls through, who would... more
In just under 2 weeks the Chairboys Academy Trust (A separate Ltd company NOT the club) had identified £365k of funding towards the £485k required to run the Academy. They needed 3 months cash flow... more
--the £120K was not raised during the rest of the year ? The club/tust are going to have to be as much as possible in the business of certainties and not "wing and a prayer" economics in the future.... more
Wycombe trust to blame for this.Think they want all the money from any fund raising to go to them instead of c.o.e. Horrible way to treat kids and coaches. if the trust runs wwfc like this then this... more
Im afraid might go the other way no c.o.e no wwfc. there are no funds to buy players for the first team and they have just got rid of there youth dept. how many players from the c.o.e have gone on to ... more
This is a large part of the problem - in the past such investment could be offset by transfer sales of players such as Harris and Ibe. With EPPP this revenue stream has been cut. Admittedly basing my ... more
that such an amount of money could be saved elsewhere? Let me help you. It's two first team squad players. Let's wait and see how many players we have now that there are no youth players to bring in... more
Those savings, not to mention many many more that look like they will have to be made, (thanks to the mess are now in and the need to be financially prudent/self sufficient from now on) will probably ... more
yep, meeting monday agreed centre of excellence would carry on running under a new trust, funded by sponsors and parents! so no drain on club!!!! Supportors Trust accept and then u turn. Will never... more
as your contribution this evening illustrates. Another person who can't wait to slag off the Trust but not the person who is responsible for the Non-Disclosure Agreement. Blah, blah, blah is about... more
You almost seem to want the Trust to fail. I am no Trust insider. I am not even a member. I have never told you you are wrong or that you should cease posting. I have never said the Trust should be... more
The trust has taken it upon itself to attempt to takeover the club. Well fair play. However to be a supporters trust in more than just name you really need the supporters on board. I respect in a... more
Questioning your desire to make assumptions and guesswork does not mean I, or anyone else, is an "insider" or anymore "in the know" than you are. It does however mean they see little to be gained in... more
is a little different. I have no idea whether the trust volunteered to takeover the club or felt they had little choice with no other alternatives. I would suggest judge the new regime after it has... more
They have 500 paying members. They have given the Board a mandate to protect the interests of the club. That is what they are currently doing. Let them do it. How many support your view? Rather fewer ... more
Broadly I really do. It is just a bit hard to know what I am supporting. Last night being a classic example. We had one side of the story posting (emotionally) and no response from the other side. I... more
It seems as though, and this might be just my interpretation or the way its being presented, that Hayes is dropping Wycombe and the trust are stepping in, rather tan this being a trust land grab, but ... more
Good point well made but spineless Trust that have no direction or passion for the game!
