Future Of Dorchester Town FC Discussed Tonight


1:27pm 24th April 2013

The future direction of Dorchester Town Football Club will be revealed tonight.

A public meeting's being held at The Dorford Centre.

James Mathie from Supporters Direct will outline the idea of Community Ownership.

The club say negotiations along those lines are now approaching a conclusion.

There'll also be a presentation from the Community Trust treasurer Neal Butterworth.

Dorchester Town have released this statement to Wessex FM:

Following the successful conclusion of negotiations with the Community Trust and Dorchester Town Youth Football Club, Dorchester Town Chairman Shaun Hearn will reveal the way forward for the County Town Club at tonight's public meeting, due to be held at the Dorford Centre, Dorchester at 7.30pm.

The agreement reached between the three parties will herald a breakthrough for the club, with the future ownership arrangements set to give both supporters and the youth organisation an influential voice in the running of the club for the first time.

Shaun Hearn's announcement will be part of an agenda which will also feature James Mathie from Supporters Direct, a guest from community owned club Lewes Football Club and a presentation on Dorchester Town Football Club by Neal Butterworth, Community Trust Treasurer.

The evening will conclude with a question and answer session with the Chairmen from all three organisations, Shaun Hearn, John Greenslade and Lloyd Spracklen, alongside Neal Butterworth and James Mathie.

Doors open at 7.15pm and the meeting is due to start at 7.30pm.
