‘Judge by their actions’ – Oatcake editor’s praise for Stoke City owners



In these incredibly difficult and worrying times, I would like to say how we’re so lucky to have people like the Coates family both providing massive employment in our city and running our beloved Stoke City.

At a time of such uncertainty we should count ourselves blessed that a local company has stuck so decisively behind its employees and also reassured everybody connected with the football club that their positions are safe and secure.

What a relief it is for those affected to have such a safety net and security in place.

Over these last few trying seasons I’ve heard more than one or two fellow Stoke supporters suggesting that it’s time for us to look for new owners, usually with an idea of foreign investors to come in and replace them.

Well I hope this current situation, and the reaction of the Coates family has focused everybody’s minds a little more sharply.

Does anybody think foreign owners would be so committed to both our club and the people of our city and its surrounding areas?

By their actions can you judge people and we shouldn’t ever forget that Peter, Denise and John Coates have stepped forward when it mattered most to local people and to supporters of our club.
