The Co-operative came about shortly after the reformation of the football club, as the remnants of the club’s Supporter’s Steering Committee, sought to form a new organisation, with the aim of creating a democratic body that could seek representation and part ownership of the football club.

This move saw the club’s Trust and Supporter’s Club merge to create this new organisation and since then they have been able to achieve a number of goals, the registering of Liberty Way as an Asset of Community Value, and the charting of the extensive history of the club, via the Town to Town Project.
