The New Year promises to be an interesting one with Sixfields development and the Sustain the Game football reform agenda to the fore.
So if you have strong views on how the football club and the game in general should progress, and would like to influence the Trust’s direction of travel, please get in touch.
Application forms for board membership will be mailed out to Trust members next month but if you have any enquiries at all related to the Trust then please contact us via email - firstname.lastname@example.org

Future of Football/Sustain The Game
The Trust has met with other football club Trusts and Associations to discuss the key principles of future football reform, which are subject to a fan-led review due to take place in 2021.
The three main areas of reform identified by the supporter groups were accountability (including independent regulation of how clubs are allowed to operate, transparency (particularly in finances) and sustainability.
We will be opening out the debate to Trust members, focus groups and the wider fan base in the coming months. The club has indicated its willingness to take part in these discussions and we will keep you posted as to how this develops.
The next meeting of the Trust board will take place on Tuesday 5 January – any Trust member interested in attending via Zoom should contact the board secretary Helen Hickman at the above address.
The Trust board would like to wish all Cobblers fans a very Merry Christmas – and hopefully a Happy New Year, one which sees all fans back at Sixfields and the team climbing the League One table on the back of some entertaining football!
