Minutes of 2012 AGM:

Matters Arising: Stuart said he had heard nothing from EXPROʼs solicitors since November 2012

with regards to the Derek Dougan DVDʼs.

High Interest account could be higher with interest added.

Travel Secretary's Report: Peter reported a profit of £222.75 but three members still owe for match

tickets. Trips were run to 23 home and 15 away matches. There was a good train service from Euston




and the Call Centre in India had provided a reasonably good service. The highest attended trips were

40 for Nottingham Forest and 38 for Sheffield Wednesday at home, and 22 Peterborough United and

21 Nottingham Forest away. The average number travelling was down on the previous season, which

was in the Premiership. Fare prices again varied because of competition with other travellers. Peter

needed to book early to get cheaper fares and can make provisional booking three months in advance.

Payment is required at the time of booking apart from with Virgin Trains. Debts for the 2011-12 season

have been paid, but there has been no progress on previous seasons. Seven Club Season Tickets

were purchased on the Wolves Early Bird scheme in March costing a total of £3352.00. A profit of

£366.00 was made on the sale of match day tickets. Thanks once again to members who loaned their

season tickets when not attending themselves. We have again renewed Club season tickets for the

2013-14 season on the Early Bird Scheme. Early Bird season ticket holders have received refunds

because of Wolves relegation, and twelve away season tickets have been bought by Club members.

Peter offered thanks to Wolves Ticket Office, and particularly Steve who has now left Wolves. Also,

thanks to Dave Slape and Bob Richards for their help last season.

Social Secretary's Report: Roy reported the Christmas Party was the biggest yet, but was a rush

and finished late. Guests were a good mix, with Matt Murray, Wolves Women and a Club official. The

end of season match at Brighton we had a meal in the Snowdrop pub followed by a night at the greyhound

racing. For this season Roy has options open for Christmas and a horse racing evening, including a

Queen tribute band for the end of the season.

Newsletter Editor's Report: Steve stated Stefan is to be more involved this season and the magazine

would be A5 size after consulting the membership.

2013-14 figures.

replaced by Carol Randall. Thanks to Tim for his efforts over the years.

heart surgery.
