Save our West Ham supporters club

An online petition has been set up for supporters to register a vote of no confidence in the Executive Committee of the West Ham United Supporters’ Club after it was revealed that some of the committee were in favor of the dissolution of the 70-year-old institution they govern for their own financial gain.

A minority of the 730 strong member club are trying to force the closure of the social club using rule 32 to split assets worth hundreds of thousands of pounds between members with eight years or more of continuous membership.

Rule 24 allows club members to force their own EGM if one-fifth of the membership agrees which is around 146.

The petition says at a forced EGM there should be a Vote of no confidence in the current West Ham United Supporters’ Club Executive committee and ask for their immediate resignation and election of a new committee with updated rules. The current executive committee has shown a lack of governance, transparency and accountability and members should get an opportunity to vote for change.

Only members votes will count. The petition for members only can be found at https://www.change.org/p/west-ham-united-supporters-club-members-vote-of-no-confidence-in-west-ham-united-supporters-club-executive-committee

At the time of writing the petition has been signed by 89 members so just 57 members needed to trigger an EGM.

A Twitter account to help save the club has been set up at  https://twitter.com/SaveOurSuppClub
