Whitletts Victoria – Open to the Community

Whitletts Victoria – Ayr’s Junior Club, has been incorporated as a not for profit Company Limited by Guarantee. The move is designed to give the club a community focus and will involve a membership scheme where supporters and members of the local community can become members of the club and have a say in the running of and the future of Whitletts Victoria. Announcing the new constitution for the Club, Chairman Colin McTrusty said that the new scheme will give the club a stronger link with both the football community and the local community in Ayr. “This scheme will result in Whitletts Victoria being wholly owned by its’ members who will have the ultimate say in the future of the club and the direction that it takes. In recent years there has been a major turn around in the clubs’ fortunes on the park. Jim Geddes and the players have done a tremendous job and we are now well placed for a promotion push to the Premier League but this is about giving the local community in Ayr ownership and involvement of the club.” “We are laying the foundations for Whitletts Victoria to be at the heart of the footballing community in Ayr, to give the people of Ayr a stake in the Clubs’ future and develop into a real force in junior football.” The scheme was devised by Ayr United fans’ group, The Honest Men Trust (THMT), who have been assisting the Club since their forced eviction from their Voluntary Park home last year. THMT Chairman John Dalton welcomed the announcement and said that he hoped that this would be a new beginning for the Club. “We are delighted that this process has been completed. It was welcomed by the committee at Whitletts Victoria and they have to be congratulated for seeing a new vision and direction for the Club. Hopefully now the local community will see the benefits of having a strong junior side in the town and back the scheme and become involved with the club to ensure not only the future development of the Club but also the local community.” In line with the Clubs’ new status, Vics’ are launching a new membership scheme that will allow anyone to become a member of the new community based company. Memberships priced at £10 per annum and can downloaded from the Clubs’ website www.whitlettsvictoria.com/col.asp?cid=39, or available from the Club at a home...
