When Exeter City played Northampton Town on Saturday 7th December, our Trust invited representatives of the oldest supporters' trust in the country, Northampton Town, established in 1992, to come and visit us here and to see for themselves the work that is being done at Exeter by our Trust, our supporters and club staff.
Chairman of the Northampton Trust, Andy Roberts, subsequently made the following comments about the visit;
"Thank you so much once again to you all for your kind hospitality at yesterday's clash of the League Two titans!
I am sure I also speak for Helen, Cheryl, Trina and Vince when I say how impressed we all were with all the fantastic work you have done at St James Park - the sense of community and football family shines through in everything you do, and have done, at your football club.
There are many aspects we will look to bring forward at Northampton as part of our community ownership ambitions - in particular the stand supports for fans who struggle with steps, a museum room, memorial bricks and the clear evidence of fandom around the stadium.
We also think it is important that Supporters Trusts link up via a forum to discuss issues, concerns and successes and we intend to explore this locally and regionally."
The visit was also reported on Northampton Trust's own website.
