Trust Oldham has launched a consultation with Latics fans to gain feedback on the running of the club and the direction of the supporters’ trust.
The move comes 12 months after the majority shareholding was acquired by Abdallah Lemsagam from Simon Corney with the remaining 3 per cent of the shares being owned by the supporters’ trust.
The results of the research will be released next week once fully compiled. More than 175 fans gave up time to provide their feedback and we’d like to thank all those who took the time to do this, it’s been a great help.
Moving on, the trust would now like to reach out to the business community of the town to see how we can work together to support the long-term interests of the club which is such an important community asset. We attended our first event at the Mahdlo youth zone recently with a view to this.
New trust chair Mark Lund, who has taken over the position from Simon Colebrook, said:
“As shareholders of the club, it is the first responsibility of the trust to support Abdallah in making the club successful and protect the invaluable share that we have in our football team. It is a hugely important asset for the town.
“It’s now over 14 years since the trust provided vital funds to the previous owners and we want to speak to businesses to find out how we can provide a long-term sustainable future for the club.”
Anyone interested in getting involved should email [email protected]. The trust has targeted 250 new members before the end of the season.
It’s simple, safe and secure to sign up and there are lots of additional benefits in becoming a member – and all from just £1 a month.
