Appeal from Martyrs to the Cause

Dear supporter

We are writing to ask for your support as a Trust member and therefore a potential part owner of Merthyr Tydfil Football Club.

The Supporters Society (Martyrs to the Cause) is aiming to bid for the purchase of Merthyr Tydfil Football Club from Administration at the end of March.

The Trust is confident that the club can be run on a break even basis, but it has used its reserves (£50,000) to get things where they are, and we are committed to continue in the long term.

We are inviting supporters of all clubs to make loans to the Trust in £100 units, to be repaid over the next three seasons. If for any reason the club is not purchased, all funds will be returned.

Cheques or cash have to be with the club by Tuesday 23rd March 2010.

We think this is the best chance of a positive outcome for the club in the long term. We hope you can help.

If you wish to support us in our historic bid for our football club then please contact us at the address listed above.
