The Trust is to host a Q&A session to provide an opportunity for its members to find out more about the extraordinary judgement, which saw the Oystons ordered to buy out Valeri Belokon's shares for the costly price of £31.27m.

BST will also use the meeting as an opportunity to map out its future strategy in light of Justice Marcus Smith's astonishing verdict.

The meeting will be held at 12.30pm before Blackpool are due to play Portsmouth at Bloomfield Road.
