NTFC Supporters Trust serves to represent supporter needs and interests, be democratic, open, inclusive and accountable to the membership. To support and promote NTFC, a guardian of professional football in Northampton. To contribute to and learn from the wider supporters’ movement.
The Trust would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has donated to the crowdfunding appeal (https://crowdfunding.justgiving.com/ntfctrust) as well as making donations directly to the Trust. We are pleased to see too that the club has honoured its commitment to the Coppafeel charity today. More disappointing is that a takeover deal still seems some way off; with staff not being paid and without a deal this underlines the importance of continuing to raise funds as the club faces a very uncertain and bleak future.
On Wednesday 11th November, the crowdfunding appeal reached the £36,600 mark in donations including many from fans of other clubs. Every penny counts and we now need to push on towards £50,000 and have a growing band of fan actively promoting the appeal in every way possible.
We had a bucket collection at the Ricoh Stadium ahead of the FA Cup tie on 7th November and this raised a further £4000.
Northampton Town Supporters' Trust was formed in January 1992, as a result of a large public meeting attended by over 600 fans. This meeting was called by a group of ordinary supporters, including Rob Marshall, editor of the fanzine What a Load of Cobblers, and myself, in response to a financial crisis at the club and a series of misleading statements issued by the then chairman.
