  1. Hi Latics. I will leave this one for Singe to answer as he has really drove this. He is incommunicado at the moment but I am sure he will be back on soon Cheers
  2. Afternoon folks....I am the poor substitute today for Singe. Here is todays lottery results. 1895 lottery results for 17/10/2021 are: 14 29 30 16. There are no winners. Next weeks jackpot is now £700.00 drawn on 24/10/2021. £5 lucky dip winner is S.Whittles. Congrats, OASF director Tracy Wright will contact you to arrange your winnings. https://t.co/nKfvorIkZL
  3. Apologies Dave, I forgot my password and its took me ages to get around to sorting it out - Doh! One of our Directors is working on the list of stuff, TBA when we have finalised it nearer the time
  4. Not really. I think lookerstandandy posted and not Matt. Matt is elected so he was the one in last weeks meeting thanks
  5. Just to clarify the Chair wanted to leave pre-AGM but stayed on to ensure we got through the AGM and elected candidates in before he stood down. The rep made his decision after a period of reflection. I fairly sure I mentioned this at last weeks meeting when I asked the new board to accept the resignations. Membership was already on the increase pre-AGM and rose by an additional 70% by the time we suspended membership. I saw various reasons given on social media as to the reasons why.
  6. Think it highlights the much needed EFL reform.
  7. Actually we did not. We contacted the EFL with our concerns at the time. The EFL still approved the sale
  8. Apologies Chaps I am late seeing this. All ideas are very welcomed. We will be having folk to work on events/fundraising stuff. Please keep this post going and thanks
  9. New chaps have lots of new ideas to mix with the two oldies left. so TBA
  10. We know that Oldham is in a deprived area, we know post covid money is scarce, we know that we are in a catchment area that is saturated by other local successful clubs. We are one of 12 clubs in crisis in the EFL (we were one of two Sept,2019), post covid. What would make us an attractive buy if 12 clubs became available? Our club is seperated from its asset. Its a dysfunctional set up - not unique. Clubs seperated from its asset was our chosen brief at the recent Fan Led Review. What we have is the dialogue open with Oldham council on a project that could take us beyond the glass ceiling of league one fan owed clubs. If I remember, you was going to work on it with Mark? We have had two meetings with the council, 2 MP's have been briefed and Oldham College are interested too. We are aiming high with it but if we don't exhaust all routes.
  11. Morning all Quick update. The strategy included investment in a professional built website. This site is loosely based on the Foundation of hearts model. We want it to be a one stop shop for all - fans, members and businesses. There will be a pledge (might change name yet to something else) page. It has to be GDPR and FCA compliant. The strategy includes having links will businesses and Council We have a new team and they have been given an overview of the website and will be heavily involved in its content. We want all fans to be involved in the journey, whether you can give £1 every so often or more. Anything labelled "1895" is for the contingency fund. 1895 lottery has raised £8k with 224 players. Draw is every Sunday. Jackpot is £1k today. Draw 2pm. Cutoff 1pm. We are looking for a sponsor and prizes too 1895 Pledge (or other name tba) - launch October 1895 leave a latics legacy - leave something in your will like the Dale fan did. Based on Canaries Trust model. Only a discussion at the mo The 1895 contingency fund will be run by trustees (guardians) TBA OASF also have admin costs. If anyone can help in the meantime by using the Easyfundraising online shopping tool, would be a big help. 4, 000 retailers that will give us a kickback. We will be looking for a sponsor We also have to contingency plan if club, stadium or both become available.....A, B, C A = Asset of community value - project management planning C = Club B = Both We have to be responsible and be ready for fan ownership/majority investment. We cannot wait for EFL reform via the Fan Led Review. Thanks
  12. The two are separate. If you resign the seat you resign the intelligence you need that ticks off the FSA key marker questions. These questions are monthly checks on the financial health of our club. Remember the accounts are 12 months behind. The rep legally has to see hard evidence that the club are fulfilling its legal obligations time (including staff wages) and on time. Without that its lip service. The 3% is a separate shareholder right. Mainly the accounts and shareholder register Cheers
  13. Can you spare 3mins? OASF have been contacted by a post-graduate student who needs latics fans help. "My research focuses on EFL One and EFL Two clubs and fan intentions to return to live games". The survey last up to 3 minutes & means this season. Thanks https://t.co/aqW4L2pl0Q
