Following the loss of John Fleck, at the end of his contract to another League 1 club, the sale of Romain Vincelot also to one of our rivals has seen responses from many Coventry City fans ranging from bewilderment and disappointment to anger and dismay.
On behalf of our members and all CCFC supporters, the Sky Blue Trust would like to know how the loss of another of our key midfield players will help the football club to realise its ambition to secure promotion.
Notice of the forthcoming Trust AGM was given on the Trust website on 23 May 2016. A formal agenda for the meeting is attached.
Also in May, the Trust invited Members to put themselves forward for election to the Trust Board, to fill the five vacancies which will arise at the AGM. Four nominations have been received - from Rachael Brown, Jan Mokrzycki, Frank Smith and Bruce Walker. Their election to the Board will be put to the AGM for approval.

The Sky Blue Trust's "Save the Academy” petition has had over 500 signatures in its first 24 hours.
It’s a brilliant show of support from Sky Blues fans, and helps put pressure on all parties to get round the table and sort out the academy’s future.
Steve Brown, Chair of the Trust board, said, “What we need now is supporters to spread the message. Don't just sign the petition, tell other people you've signed it and get them to sign too. Tell your family and friends, the Academy is the lifeblood of our club and needs rescuing. If you use social media - Facebook, Twitter and so on - tell people on there you’ve signed. Get them to visit our website or our Facebook page and use the links to sign up”.
The next target is a thousand signatures. Let’s get there as quick as we can!
