Andy Clarke, the Trust’s elected representative on the board of the football club, has announced his resignation from the position.
Andy has served the Trust in an incredibly challenging period in the club’s history, which culminated last week in his decision to leave the post following the #WeWantAnswers campaign at the Oxford United game.
Speaking about his decision, Andy said: “I have been proud to represent the Trust over the last two years.
“The experience has been enjoyable in the main but has also been challenging.
“In 2013/14 we faced the prospect of slipping into the Conference after parting company with Aidy Boothroyd. The appointment of Chris Wilder and new playing staff saw us achieve safety, albeit in the last game of the season.
“The interruption to the work on the East Stand has also added to the frustrations of some fans and the Trust has had its work cut out to show support for fans but also to appeal for calm.
“I have done my best to create an effective link between the Trust and the football club. But this has proved to be too difficult to achieve in the last few weeks and I have therefore tendered my resignation from the board.”
The Trust would like to extend its huge gratitude for all the work Andy has done in his time in the role – and we are delighted he has agreed to remain a board member on the Trust.
In the meantime, the Trust will be reviewing the role of our elected representative in the near future.
