The Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust has reiterated calls for change at the club and is planning a protest against the ownership around the final home game of the season.

On Friday, 90 per cent of THST members on a video call voted in favour of a motion calling for the resignation of the executive board and for the owners, ENIC, to work with them to elect a new board with fan representation.

It came in the wake of the board's decision to join the aborted European Super League without consulting supporter groups.

In a new statement, THST said: "We know there is growing supporter anger with the current Club Board and Owners. We understand that. We need to focus that anger.

"We understand the calls for ‘ENIC Out’. But simply calling for the Board and Owners to resign or sell without influencing what comes next achieves very little in the long term. THST has said for many years that the law must be changed to give fans more power in how our clubs are run.

“Now the UK government has launched a review to do just that. We are working closely with them to develop a model that will deliver this across the game, and we are drawing up practical measures that can be implemented at our Club.

"Our offer to the current THFC owners to work together on this remains open."

There was a small protest against ENIC and chairman Daniel Levy before last week's League game against Southampton and THST said the final home game of the season against Aston Villa, when 10,000 fans are expected to return to the stadium, "gives us an opportunity to make our feelings clear".
