ICTST PRESS STATEMENT - Thursday, 6 June 2024

ICT Supporters Trust welcomes the announcement that ICTFC CEO Scot Gardiner has tendered his resignation from the club, following the earlier resignation of Chairman Ross Morrison. The Supporters Trust have been calling for a change in leadership at the very top of the club since the relegation to League One on 18th May.

It was clear from the Supporters Trust fans meeting last week that the threat of a season ticket boycott was very real. Our demands were that the CEO was removed and the Kelty deal, which was ill thought and entered into without fan consultation, was scrapped. It appears these demands have been heard.  


Our survey to gauge the volume of cash that supporters would not spend at the club this season highlighted more than £250k of potential lost revenue to the club if the ICT board of directors did not act.


Nothing would have been changed if it were not for the overwhelming will of our supporters. The last few weeks has highlighted that football without fans is nothing, and that the big decisions at football clubs must have supporters’ interests at heart. By pulling together, under one voice, fans can make a difference. 


While the threat of ongoing financial issues remain,  we welcome news of potential investment, and appreciate that any future financiers need to fully understand the club’s fiscal position before they make any investment.


We can hopefully now start the process of restoring a reputation that was painstakingly built over 30 years. It’s time for the club to re-engage with its supporters and local businesses and hope that they will get back behind Inverness Caledonian Thistle.


The Supporters Trust are ready to work with the current board and any new investors to ensure lessons are learned from past mistakes and that supporters can feel their voice at the club is being heard. Our Stronger Together campaign to raise income to support the club will be key, now more than ever https://www.ictsupporterstrust.org/stronger-together
