    Interestingly it looks as if Roger Ellis is still on the board even though he's no longer part of the Trust?

    How does that work?

    Board and National Council - Football Supporters' Association

    Could CJ or Neil confirm who is representing the Trust and city fans there then?

    Salop is always tweeting about them as well.

    Hmm, does this read that he left the Trust or just left his position of secretary? -

    Sky Blue Trust - The Sky Blue Trust Accept The Resignation of Secretary Roger Ellis

    'It is with great reluctance that today the Sky Blue Trust accepted the resignation of their secretary, Roger Ellis.
    Roger joined the Trust six years ago and has performed his secretarial, organisational and wider public duties with Supporters Direct for example, in exemplary fashion.
    Roger has been dealing with very pressing family medical issues for some time as well as the heavy work load required from the Trust over recent months.
    Additionally the intolerable level of personal insults and insinuations he has had to suffer in recent days now makes it impossible for him to continue in his position.'

    I messaged the FSA regarding this the other day but still not heard anything back... included that link and the one around the abhorrent stuff that happened in Rotherham on his watch (and the fallout from it)

    The report into the child sexual exploitation is very damming on the council police and other statutory authorities who did nothing although they were absolutely aware of what was going on and let it happen

    bastards including him

    It certainly doesn't sit comfortably that he's representing our club at the FSA, but what can we do about it?

    Think it tells you everything you need to know about the Trust and Supporter's Direct if they are happy with him representing.

    Semantics.... Whatever place it was that is what I said to the fca, the guy shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a professional organisation after the way he acted and definitely not a voice around my football club

    Aren't the FCA the same as Supporter's Direct? The same people who worked with the Council's PR company?

    Yes, the Football Supporters Federation merged with Supporters Direct to become the FSA.
