Statement from the Chairman

The demise of Ilkeston Football Club and the subsequent appearance of Ilkeston Town Football Club has led to the Supporters Group committee making a decision to change the Group’s name.

We no longer want our name to be associated with what became a toxic organisation. It would also be disrespectful to the new owner to continue with the existing name.

Therefore we will be relaunching ourselves as the Ilkeston Football Supporters Group (IFSG), the name we wanted at the beginning before we agreed to change it at the request of the previous regime’s owner.

We believe IFSG is an appropriate Group name, a catch-all which takes in both Ilkeston Town FC plus the Juniors and the Ladies sections, and it echoes the community involvement which ITFC plans to move towards.

Please note that this is just a re-brand. All Group funds from the IFCSG will remain.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Duncan Payne
