Trust Delivers Again!

£63 000 is the remarkable figure that Clyde Supporters Trust has donated to Clyde Football Club during season 2005/06. That amount represents the equivalent of 250 full paying fans for every home league game. Quite an accomplishment!

It may of gone unnoticed by some during Saturday's half time break but the interval lay witness to another significant event in the life of the Clyde Supporters' Trust. Trust officials Gordon Nisbet and Graham Forrest presented Clyde Chairman Len McGuire (pictured left) with a cheque to the value of £45 000 to support the running of the club.

During the season £10 000 was contributed towards the running costs of the Under 19 side and a further £8500 was directly donated and ring fenced for the player budget, in total therefore the Trust contributed £63000.

The monies raised came directly from a variety of fundraising activities, membership fees and merchandise sold at the supporters shop at Broadwood. The final figure represents a tremendous effort both by the fans purchasing items and supporting events and the ongoing commitment (in some cases daily) of the Trust Board to see Clyde compete at the highest level.
