Important news for all supporters of Merthyr Tydfil FC

Dear Supporter of Merthyr Tydfil Football Club

Public Meeting on Thursday May 14th at the Penydarren Social Club 7.30pm Start

I am writing to inform you that the Trust, along with members of the OSC and other active supporters, are holding a Public Meeting to look for support for a campaign to save Merthyr Football Club from extinction.

On Wednesday 6th May her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs were seeking to wind up the club, because of non payment of £7000 in tax. The Trust employed legal representation to arrange a 28 day adjournment of the case.

The lawyers are now looking for alternative ways of going forward to save the club, and if possible, to gain control of the club by the supporters. It has always been the Trust’s intention to be a vehicle to arrive at a club run by the supporters on a democratic basis.

If we, the supporters, are to be successful in our bid, we are going to have show complete commitment and it will be necessary to raise significant funds.

I urge you therefore to attend the meeting on Thursday 14th May, if at all possible, to demonstrate that you want the club to survive.

Please pass this email to anyone you think might be interested in ensuring a successful future for Merthyr Tydfil Football Club.

Yours sincerely

John Strand
Secretary Merthyr Tydfil FC Supporters Society
