We are delighted to announce that our registration to become a Society for Community Benefit has been approved by the Financial Conduct Authority.
This means that the club now belongs to you, the fans.
Upon receiving confirmation, Andy Walsh, Head of National Game and Community Ownership with the FSA said
The Football Supporters' Association is pleased to welcome Colne FC as the latest club to become community owned. Colne FC joins over forty other clubs in England that have adopted the community ownership model first pioneered over 20 years ago. The FSA looks forward to working with the officers and supporters of Colne FC to help build and develop the club infrastructure to secure the club's financial stability and long term future.
Colne F.C. co-chair Glenn Stock added "Since we came in to the club back in October, we knew changes were needed to the club's structure to protect this clubs future, and I don't think there is a better way of doing this than giving control to our loyal fanbase".
On Wednesday 12th April we will be hosting an evening where fans can find out more about the new structure. We will be joined by a member from the Football Supporters' Association who will be ready to answer any of your questions.
Also joining us on the evening will be new manager Paul Weller who will be on hand to answer any of your questions.
