The Saints Trust Net 1885 Shares

The recently formed Saints Trust has announced the purchase of its first shares in Southampton Football Club today.

The Trust was created to give fans a louder voice in the dealings at the club.

The money recieved from initial membership fees and donations has been used to buy 1885 shares; the number symbolising the year the club were formed.

In a press statement today The Saints Trust said:

The Saints Trust today announced the purchase of 1885 shares in Southampton Leisure Holdings, celebrating the year Southampton Football Club was founded. The share purchase gives all Saints fans a chance to own a share of the club as members of the Saints Trust.

The shares will be added to the proxy shares already held by the Trust giving fans a growing voice in how the club is run. There are plans to purchase more shares in Southampton Leisure Holdings as membership of the Trust increases.

Saints Trust Chairman Steve Godwin:

“The purchase of 1885 shares in Southampton Leisure Holdings by the Saints Trust is a major step forward for all fans of Southampton Football Club. It gives the average fan on the terrace a voice in the way the club is run. Right now that voice is only a whisper but in time it will grow to be roar”.

“We decided to buy 1885 shares to commemorate the foundation of the club and as a symbol to remind everyone that the club belongs to the fans above all else. It was set up by supporters in 1885 and that should not be forgotten in this modern age”.
