Spurs Supporters’ Trust responds to Lilywhites u-turn

THE TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR Supporters’ Trust have responded following the club’s decision to reverse a move towards cutting staff pay and using the Government’s furlough scheme amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

Spurs had come under heavy criticism from fans with the salaries of 550 non-playing staff affected. However, after the club changed their stance, the Trust offered a positive response.

A statement posted on www.thstofficial.com explained; 

It takes maturity and humility to reverse such a contentious and public decision and we’re pleased that, rather than doubling down, the Club’s Board has listened to the fans on this occasion and ultimately done the right thing. As we said in our statement, no organisation is going to get everything right in these unprecedented circumstances and the eventual outcome is what matters.

We’re delighted for the Club’s non-playing staff and we thank the Club’s Directors for finding an alternative way forward. This is the first step, but a big step, in restoring relations between fans and the Club.

The statement added; We should now focus on the range of other measures the Club is delivering to help the NHS combat the COVID-19 pandemic; measures that can go a long way to making us proud of our Club once more. 

Difficult days are ahead but, with everyone playing their part, we can come through the many challenges we are all facing.
