Buy Your Own Football Club!

WELL not all of it! Just some of it and here's how! Recently the club made an offer that you may have missed, in regard to the purchase of shares. The minimum number of shares you could buy off the club was 100.

The reason for this is that when the AGM or an EGM is called, the club have to send out a package to each shareholder containing notices, reports and other information.

This is a costly exercise and each package including postage is around the £10 mark.

But the club have now changed the rule.

You can now buy shares in lots of 50, which brings the cost of being a shareholder within the financial capabilities of most people.

But there is a condition.

Because of administration costs the minimum purchase of 50 shares is conditional upon you agreeing to receive the notification of AGM's/ EGM's and Club accounts by email.

That is not a problem. It is the method I have chosen for my shares. We get almost everything via email these days.

So if you want to buy a few shares and have a say in the running of the club, then the new offer may be an affordable option for you.

This is a way you can help the club in its present situation and, at the same time, becoming a part owner of the club you support.

Buying shares makes YOU a genuine, fully paid-up, part-owner of the Mighty Mariners!

All that's worth fifty quid for any Mariners' fan isn't it?

Dash off your cheque for £50 (or a multiple of £50, such as £100, £250, £1,000!!)

To pay by cheque you have two options.

Either post your letter and cheque to "The Chief Executive, Grimsby Town FC, Cleethorpes, DN35 7PY" Or click HERE

Notice to Current Shareholders

You too can help the club no matter how many shares you hold. Why not choose to have your notices sent to you electronically?

It may sound like a small saving but nowadays the club's share registry is very large and the savings to the club could be around the £2,000-£3,000 mark for every meeting called.

That is a huge saving and the best way to raise money is to save costs. It makes a great deal of difference.

To have your notices sent to you by email, which is more reliable than snail mail, send an email to with your name and address and request to have all your notices of meetings and information sent by email.

You will save the club a great deal of money and we need all the cost savings we can get.
