Our Club

We want our owner and the Board of Directors to act in a way which builds trust in the ownership and management of the club and a sense that it is in safe hands

For us to believe the club is in safe hands we have three simple asks. These asks form part of the 6 fan expectations agreed by the club in May 2019:

  1. Transparency and openness – we expect frequent and formal engagement from the Club with OASF and fans.
  2. A clear plan – The owner did issue his 3-5 year plan in June 2019. Now is the time to review it.
  3. Trust and integrity – We want our owner and the Board of Directors to act in a way which builds trust in the ownership and management of the club and a sense that it is in safe hands.

How will we achieve this?

The memorandum of understanding is an FSA inspired document that embeds some fan expectations agreed with the Club in May 2019. Critically, transparency, openness and honesty.

It took us 18 months but we got there – COMPLETED 03.04.21. Trust and Club Sign Memorandum of Understanding

We will be asking the club for an update with regards to this as it is un-precedented times. https://www.efl.com/supporters/supporters-charter/consultation–supporter-engagement

OASF board made the decision to appoint early in 2021. We are pleased to report that 92% of members approved our decision in May 2021. OASF Director Paul Hughes will be in the hot seat

Paul will have fiduciary responsibilities for the business of OAFC (2004) Ltd and we expect him to receive all the entitlements as a director of the business. Paul has a job description and will report back to the OASF board on key questions agreed with the FSA on how our club is being managed. – Thanks Paul

We expect Paul to attend the Club’s next board meeting circa June 2021.

The club board of OAFC post covid, met bi-monthly. We have decided that we need a monthly update and we will arrange to meet with Karl Evans. Minimum contact via the OASF director Paul Hughes. We will report back the outcome of these meetings and we will also say when they have not happened and why.
