SFU STATEMENT ' FREE FIELD MILL '
STAGS FANS UNITED TO BUY THE REMAINING COMMUNITY SHARES AND TO LAUNCH FREE FIELD MILL FUND
Stags Fans United (the Mansfield Town Supporters Trust) are pleased to announce that John Radford has agreed that the Supporters Trust can purchase the remaining 1,200 Community Shares for their nominal value of £0.50 per share for a total sum of £600.
This is in recognition of the support and assistance given by the Supporters Trust to the football club. This will mean that the Supporters Trust will now own all 10,000 Community Shares which is around 9.2% of the voting shares.
The board of Stags Fans United Supporters Trust would like to thank John Radford for this very generous gesture and in return Stags Fans United will immediately give the football club a cheque for £3,000 to assist with the costs of recovering Field Mill. Stags Fans United have also started a new "Free Field Mill" fundraising campaign to raise further monies to help the club with its legal battle against Keith Haslam and Stags Limited and a sum of £1,000 has already been pledged by the board of SFU for this new fund. We are planning several new fundraising ventures and we will be looking for support from the fans and the local community including corporate sponsors. All funds raised by Stags Fans United in the immediate future will be used for the "Free Field Mill" fund.
We would like to thank all our members and fans who have helped us raise the above monies including the members who responded generously to our last newsletter. Your support is greatly appreciated by us and the football club. Anyone wishing to make a donation to our "Free Field Mill Fund" can go to our website at www.stagsfansunitedsociety.co.uk and click on “make a donation” .
You can also send cheques made payable to "Stags Fans United Society Limited" to 4 Yew Tree Close, Gamston, Retford, Notts, DN22 0PZ. Any persons who donate £100 or more will be given life membership of the Supporters Trust.
You can now also join the Supporters Trust for an annual fee of £10. However, all donations large and small will be welcome and will go to the football club. Let's help return Field Mill to the Stags and the supporters. We can do this if we all stick together and rally behind John Radford who has our full support.
Come on you Stags!
The Board of Stags Fans United
