Supporters of Cowdenbeath are looking for ways to save the club money, if they agree to run it.
Members of the Cowden Trust have been in talks with Alex and David Brewster, the owners of the Blue Brazil, with the aim of running matters behind the scenes.
The trust held a meeting on Sunday to discuss the future of Cowdenbeath with fans and the public.
During the course of the meeting a show of hands was taken to gauge who would be willing to donate money in the event of the trust running the club and an overwhelming majority agreed to do so.
The trust are also looking for other ways to raise money, including cash buckets at Central Park and using only the stand at home games.
Cowdenbeath are involved in play-offs for possible promotion to the first division and the first semi-final takes place tomorrow at Central Park against Alloa Athletic.
If the Blue Brazil were to gain promotion, the trust said they would use the terracing for bigger away supports.
Director Dave Allan said, “We are lucky if we get around 400 for some home games so it would make more sense to just use the stand.
“However, if we get promotion to the first division we would obviously open up the terracing for the Fife derbies against Dunfermline and Raith Rovers and also the visit of Dundee.”
The trust have launched a campaign to save the club and are now looking to gain support from local businesses and Fife Council.
They have also been given financial pledges from some supporters and will visit pubs in Cowdenbeath over the coming weeks to promote their cause.
Stuart Juner, chairman of the Cowden Trust, said, “We want to run the club like an organisation. Any money that would come through the turnstiles and programmes would come to us.
“The next stage is to carry the message to the community and get them on board. We’re now going to approach Fife Council and businesses.”
The Cowden Trust have arranged a fund-raising gig for Friday, June 18 at 7pm in the Cowdenbeath Co-operative Hall featuring Bruce Watson (Big Country and The Skids) and his son Jamie. They will play a 30-minute acoustic set, which will be followed by sets from The Lane, Radio Arcade, SOE and Vertis. Ticket details will follow soon.
Cowdenbeath players will all wear the Cowdenbeath Action Fund t-shirts below their strips in tomorrow’s game against Alloa. The t-shirts, which come in all sizes, cost £10 with £5 going towards the club.
Mr Juner said, “The players are 100% behind us and we also have the backing of the manager Danny Lennon. There is a passion to save the club but we need to sustain that day by day.”
Meanwhile, Cowden will be without three key players for the first leg of their first division play-off semi-final against the Wasps. The Fifers will have to reorganise in defence with centre-half John Armstrong suspended.
They also have experienced midfielder Craig Winter ruled out through suspension and young right-back Dene Droudge sidelined with a knee injury.
