Drive Grays Athletic into League football


As any Grays fan will know, the club has struggled for years to break into the Football League. Years in the Conference and back-to-back triumphs in the FA Trophy mark a bright period in the club's history, but narrowly missing out on promotion to the League in 2005/06 remains a cause of constant frustration.

The last year has not been great for the club either. A series of managerial changes for various reasons ruined last year's campaign and, despite a reasonable start to the current season, the club is already off the pace in the championship race and looks likely to miss out once again.

Nevertheless, Grays Athletic are a fantastic club with real potential and you deserve to be watching your team not only competing for the Conference title, but seeking promotion to the Football League proper for the first time in history.

If you would like the chance to help put Grays Athletic on the path to glory and have a say in the future of the club, then maybe The People's Club can help.





Grays Athletic - The People's Club?


The People’s Club are looking to sign up 40,000 football fans who are interesting in buying and running a real football club, which will be chosen by our members. We expect to bring in excess of £1,500,000 investment per season to the chosen club.

If our members choose Grays Athletic to become The People's Club, then what will we do?

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways.

You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as members travel to see games and boost the attendance figures. Innovative commercial activities will bring in additional revenue and the very nature of The People's Club concept will naturally mean Grays Athletic will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

Secondly, you, the fans, will run the club. You'll have the ability to vote on whether to hire or fire a manager, which players start each game each week and who is on the bench. As the transfer window opens, you'll be able to choose who we sign and who we transfer list.

We are giving you the opportunity to take Grays Athletic forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Villa Park every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Grays Athletic for the worse. We're all football fans and we fully understand the importance of the heritage and identity of the club and the feeling of belonging that each and every Grays Athletic fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.

How will your membership help?


As politicians are fond of saying, your vote counts. The People's Club is built entirely on the concept that the fans know best and the collective decision making power that our members have will ensure success for many years to come.

At the moment, Grays Athletic is not The People's Club. It can only become so if you sign up and choose Grays Athletic as the club you think we should make a bid for once we have enough members and therefore enough funds to do so.

Register for free and select Grays Athletic as your choice for the club we should buy. Then tell all your friends about us - their votes count too! If Grays Athletic is one of the most popular choices, it stands a very good chance of attracting substantial investment.

We're also on the lookout for a representative in Thurrock to encourage fans to sign up, so please contact us if you think you can get enough fans behind you and make Grays Athletic The People's Club.
