Trust statement

This has been a difficult week for the Club and its fans with the shock departure of the Chief Executive, David McNally, closely followed by confirmation of our relegation from the Premier League.
We would first of all like to place on record our thanks to David for his pivotal role in saving the Club from administration and then restructuring to a point where we have spent four of the last five seasons at the top tier of English football and are financially secure. While two relegations in the last three years have detracted from his record there can be no argument that he leaves a significant legacy and we wish him all the best in his future career.
However, we now have to look to the future and having had discussions with the club in the last few days we are confident not only that it is in good hands but also that plans are in place to learn from, and avoid a repetition of, the errors that were inarguably made both this season and in 2013/14
It may seem that we are at a low ebb currently but we feel that the future is both bright and exciting as the Club looks to bounce back to the Premier League immediately and we hope that all City fans will keep the faith.
