New Podcast for supporters and community clubs

We’re very pleased to bring you our very first podcast ‘Behind the Goals’.

Presented by Council member Alan Russell and Head of SD Scotland Andrew Jenkin, the podcast aims to look at the community ownership of sport clubs movement, starting off with an interview with author of ‘Punk Football’ Jim Keoghan.

In the interview we explore the background and history of the supporters Trust movement, starting with the origins of Supporters Direct and the first Supporters Trust in Northampton Town. Later in the podcast we explore how sport clubs work in Germany and Sweden who adopt a ‘multi-sport club’ member owned approach to their clubs ownership and governance.
