In a special document produced to explain more about the share offer, Trust chairman Trevor Stroud says: “The primary aim of Wycombe Wanderers Trust is to safeguard the heritage of the Football Club and to maintain its ownership within the community for future generations.
“Since acquiring the Club in June 2012, our focus has been on ensuring financial survival and this has been achieved as a result of significant commitment from the Board and a number of other dedicated fans.
“In the current year, we are consolidating our financial position by working with our trade partners, ensuring our customers have a positive and consistent experience on match and non match days and planning for carefully managed revenue growth. We see this growth leading to the Club being profitable in 2016/17, underpinned by the raising of working capital through a Community Benefit Share Scheme, open to all current and future members of the Trust.
“We hope you’ll continue to support us on this exciting journey, so that the club can remain owned by the community for future generations.”
