As a result of the adoption of a formal constitution, members of Shildon AFC Supporters Club agreed that the membership structure should be changed from lifetime to annual.
There were a number of reasons for adopting the change, including the need to create and issue memberships cards so that members could benefit from Supporters Club discounts and in order to formalise voting rights at AGMs.
The members felt that the annual fee should be nominal and it was agreed to adopt a fee of £2 adults and £1 juniors. There will be no concessionary fees.
It was further agreed that only adult members would be eligible to vote at the Supporters Club AGM. It was decided to adopt the UK government voting age for elections as the age limit for voting at AGMs. If this changes, the Supporters Club’s voting age will change accordingly.
Adult membership was therefore set at 18 years of age (before 1st September) and junior membership will be under 18. There is no restriction on the age of becoming a member of the supporters club.
The Supporters Club committee is holding a series of membership registration evenings at the Dean Street clubhouse each Friday in September. Anyone wishing to join can come along between 7.30pm-9pm and register for membership.
All members will be given a membership card which must be presented in order to receive membership discounts (this includes supporters bus travel). In order for the scheme to function properly and fairly for all members, no exceptions will be made on failure to produce a membership card.
Members can also join by downloading and printing the attached PDF form and returning it, with fee payment, to any member of the Supporters Club committee on match days. Forms can also be completed in the Supporters Club shop on match days.
