Wow! If this is a true representation from the staff, it's a really damming statement against the Trust.

Can anyone who's seen the derogatory posts mentioned corroborate that they are a true representation?

I, along with many others, have taken part in the Fit Cobblers programme. I can only advise from my perspective, but Akshay and Mark, who ran the programme were brilliant and informative and, to this day, still support our Alumni in a WhatsApp group, over a year since our group finished.

I would be extremely disappointed in the Trust and its board if it were indeed true that a SM post purporting to put down the community activities of the club was in the public domain. For me personally, having just this week gone onto the Trust website to look at joining and subscribing to the Club 500, this open letter with its revelations has completely switched me off.  Sad

That is a hell of a letter, the staff are not best pleased at all. Unbelievable that the staff at a Football Club feel they need to send a letter like that to a supporters body, they are truly upset. If that is their feeling then they deserve every credit for standing up for what they believe,  well done.

Looks like the club are coming out fighting to a man (and woman). Good on them, I say.

I'd also be interested in seeing the quoted social media posts. I don't doubt they exist and I'm sure the club have a record of them, but seeing the context would be useful (not that there's an excuse for saying any of it, I'd just like to see how it came up)

The trust act like a militant union group with a hidden agenda.

They lost any respect from me after the signing of documents for DC came to light..Which is still under the carpet... Roll Eyes

Appreciate what the club staff have done today ....

The staff say they are big fans of NTFC so I ask them these questions.....

What do you want from your football club, can you honestly say that you are truly proud of NTFC in it's current state? Do you feel you and the owners have done everything possible (within reason) and maximised NTFC potential?

Because I know as a long life fan, I am currently NOT proud of NTFC and I am so so so so frustrated at it's continued mediocre performances on and off the pitch. (and the acceptance of that by it's owners, staff and many fans)

What on earth did someone think when they posted that on the official club page!? There is something very disturbing about the way this is headed.

Yes, nobody should enjoy working for the club. Very sensible point.

Time for change methinks.
The thoughts of someone that is not in the know as much as the average poster on here Ö

My initial thought was one of anger against the club - hereís a letter straight out of the Boris / Trump playbook Ö they donít like their feet being held to the fire!
But then I read it properly. The Trust need to answer these very serious claims and, if there is a thread of truth to them they need to change their ways and think how they can seriously work with the club (on our behalf!) not against it. And if they canít do that then Ö whatís the point of them?

I have never considered joining the Trust although Iíve been a supporter for nearly half a century and been a ST holder for a large chunk of that time. I guess thatís my fault and I open myself to the apathetic label! But all I know is a healthy challenging but supportive relationship between club and trust must be a good thing for all of us. I donít see that happening anytime soon without major change!

However, the letter could be more specific about what they expect to happen next. It might have also been nice to have extended an olive branch to The Trust - no sign of that though!

Iím sure if the letter is contrived it will all come out and those involved in drafting it will need to take a long hard look at themselves. If this doesnít materialise perhaps you should take a long hard look at yourself?

Or staff who want a small group of people with a hidden agenda, who go continually against their mission statement to stop trying to prevent things going forward at their workplace.

If they do have anything of substance about anything that is Ďbelow boardí and havenít released it, theyíve f*cked up with that too.
Letís face it, the Trust are finished.
