Trust news update: October 2019

21st Oct 2019

  • Community Ownership

The Trust board has finalised and approved a proposal for a future community ownership model for Northampton Town. Details will be sent out to Trust members ahead of our annual general meeting, which will be held at Kingsley Park WMC on Thursday 28 November.

 

  • Justice4Harry

           The Trust is shortly hoping to meet with Tim Dunn, father of the late                         Cobblers fan Harry Dunn who was killed in a road traffic accident near RAF             Croughton in August.

           We wish to support Harry's family in an appropriate way so they can                         receive justice and closure.

 

  • Board members to visit Exeter City

           A delegation of Trust board members will be boardroom guests of Exeter                 City when the Cobblers visit St James Park on 7 December.

           It follows a visit to the community-owned club in the Spring to look over the             fantastic facilities on offer.

           Exeter City board members were guests of honour at the Trust's                               community ownership public meeting in March.

 

  • Tree in memory of Brian Lomax
  •  
  • We have planted a tree in memory of inaugural Trust chairman Brian Lomax, the Supporters Direct pioneer, close to the Walter Tull memorial at Sixfields.
  •  
  • Brian's life and service will be remembered prior to Saturday's home match with Cambridge United, the club's official Remembrance fixture.

 

  • Vacancies for Trust board

           A number of vacancies have arisen for membership of the Trust board.                   Information will be circulated to Trust members via post and email and any             prospective new members will be up for election at the AGM next month.
