THE board of Foras, the supporters’ trust which owns Cork City, has asked supporters of the club to think about its future direction.

City faced Finn Harps at Turner’s Cross in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division at Turner’s Cross on Friday night and the match programme featured an update from the board of management.

Acknowledging the recent meeting in which members were apprised of the potential for a takeover by Trevor Hemmings, the article said that important decisions must be made in the near future and supporters should consider the path to be taken.

“Last Sunday, we held an information evening for our shareholders,” the article stated.

“More than 150 attended to hear us give updates on recent events in the off-season and next steps regarding a possible takeover bid by Trevor Hemmings.

“Of course, no decision will be made without full approval and blessing by the Foras membership. We’ll keep all members posted on any developments in that regard and we’ll continue to work hard in the background.

“The shareholders of the club will have to make some very important decisions in the near future. We encourage everyone to stop and think: where do we want to be as a football club?

“The last decade had been a mix of ups and downs and now we’re at a crossroads. The board are always available on match-night for a chat if you have any question!

“Our AGM was originally scheduled for March 5 but has been postponed [since re-fixed for March 22]. It’s important for us to give as much accurate and recent information as possible to members and the additional few weeks will allow us to do that.”
