With around 130 people polled per question, we believe that these results are representative of the fanbase.

The majority of attending fans, almost three quarters, are not shareholders.

Although a majority were in favour of the proposal, there was a significant proportion undecided. However it should be noted that the survey was conducted outside the turnstiles, whilst the club were leafletting the whole fanbase with a lot of further information downstream of our position.

A significant proportion are concerned about who the ground could be sold to, around a quarter of those surveyed.

Over 50% are okay with the ground ownership changing.

The next step for the Trust is to formally ballot our members. This will happen this week, by post and email. Please look out for communication from us and have your say – it will define how the Trust votes at the EGM.

We have opened comments to this post – see below. As always, we have to moderate comments due to Russian spammers, but after a short delay your message should appear. We welcome any feedback and interpretation on these results. Thank you.
