ST MIRREN fans are being reminded not to miss out on their chance to create history.

Members of the St Mirren Independent Supporters Association (SMISA) are voting on plans that would see the club become fan-owned by the end of next year.

If the move gets the green light, Renfrewshire charity Kibble would also get involved by buying a 27.5 per cent stake in the club from chairman Gordon Scott.

SMISA would then buy out the rest of Scott’s shares by December 2021, making them majority owners of the club with 51 per cent.

Members, though, only have until this Friday at noon to register their vote. And the result is set to be announced ahead of Saints’ crunch relegation clash against Hearts later that evening.

If the vote gets majority backing, it would make the Buddies the only league club in the UK to be partially owned by a charity.

An information evening was held at the Glynhill Hotel, in Renfrew, and the decision now rests with the fans.

SMISA members have been sent an email with details on how to vote but anyone who has yet to receive this should email the group at

A SMISA spokesperson said: “We’ve had a good response so far but we would urge any member who is yet to vote to please do so.

“This is a hugely significant proposal that not only delivers fan ownership but does it much earlier than the original plan and for a lot less money.”
