ICT Supporters Trust - What's in a name?

Recommended Posts

What’s in a name?

In our case….it’s not what’s in a name, it’s having too many of them!!

ICT Supporters Society Ltd - This is the organisations legally registered name…and we are Limited Liability company (LTD) with Community Benefits Society status (think co-operative).  As such we file our documents with the FCA and not Companies House, you can get further info at https://mutuals.fsa.gov.uk/SocietyDetails.aspx?Number=2665&Suffix=RS

ICT Supporters Trust - This was the originally adopted trading name of the society and it has it’s routes in the Supporters Trust movement which has grown over the last 10 to 15 years.  I’ll come back to this in a moment.

Caley Jags Together - The additional trading name that was adopted most recently when it was decided to bring together the functions of the Supporters Club and the Supporters Trust.

It’s become painfully apparent to us that we need to remove the confusion, so going forward we have decided that we will no longer make use of the “Caley Jags Together” name and will revert to sole use of “ICT Supporters Trust”.

When the two supporters groups merged, the Supporters Club’s main function was operating the supporters buses.  Now that this function has been moved on to the ICT Supporters Travel Club, which has no direct affiliation with the ICT Supporters Trust, then we are comfortable that we are not betraying or going back on any previous agreements to use the Caley Jags Together name.

We have already begun changing our name on social media platforms and are in the process of getting the new website ready to launch, along with the new member joining/renewing/management system which will be a large part of that.

This is a sizeable step in our bringing the organisation back to where it needs to be in order to best serve the it's members and the wider ICTFC Community.

Reverting to the previous name has no impact whatsoever on the voting right and/or the fact that, as per the football club articles, it is held by the ICT Supporters Society Ltd.

I couldn't care less what the organisation is called as long as it's functioning and effective which, for whatever reason, wasn't the case for far too long.
