TRUST members have voted almost unanimously in favour of backing a Matched Funding project for the club's proposed new Academy and training facilities.
The ballot, which was counted and verified at the club, saw a resounding 98% vote in favour.
The 296 positive votes are actually over 50% of the total membership including all those who did not vote. The breakdown was as follows:
Papers issued: 586; Papers returned: 302; YES Vote: 296; NO Vote: 4; Spoilt papers: 2.
Town chief executive Andrew Watson was very happy with the news.
He said: "There was a unanimous decision given by Trust members who attended the Trust annual meeting on August 2 and it is fantastic news that they followed that up with 98% backing from those who returned their voting slips.
"This is excellent news because it means that we can now plan ahead. The first stage will be to purchase the land at Storthes Hall and then make the application for the grant."
This is a very clear commitment to use the Trust's reserve to generate matched funding to provide much better training and playing facilities for the Academy and all Town players.
It should be clearly understood though that this is only a commitment at this stage.
As Andrew Watson has made clear, the next two stages are for the club to acquire the necessary land at Storthes Hall and then for a successful application to be made for Landfill Tax revenues.
It was always the intention to ensure that the Trust reserves - raised to ensure the club's survival - should be best used to secure the club's long term future.
We believe that the Academy is the future of the club and, as such, we are delighted that the members have agreed to give their backing to that aim.
