Sponsorship of Northampton Town Women
The board has agreed to renew its sponsorship of Northampton Town’s Women’s team for the 2021/22 season – we will be giving the Community Trust £3,000, once more split between training tops and the team’s away travel. We would like to wish both Cobblers men’s and women’s sides all the very best for the new campaign!
Meeting with West Northamptonshire Council
Representatives from the Supporters Trust will be meeting with councillors and officers from West Northamptonshire Council next month to discuss the Trust’s concerns about Northampton Town FC owner David Bower’s plans for the East Stand and wider Sixfields land development. The Trust is still awaiting written answers to the 25 questions it asked about plans for the East Stand and wider Sixfields land development. The Trust wants answers in written form so they are clear, understood and on the record.
West Northamptonshire Council – member liaison
West Northamptonshire Council has approached the Trust to suggest that two council members be appointed to the Trust in a liaison role. An invitation will be extended to selected representatives to attend the Trust’s next board meeting, scheduled for Thursday 16 September.
Trust board changes
Cathy Armstrong has stepped down from the Trust board and we would like to thank her for the support she gave the Trust over the last six months.
Joining the board are Derek Krajewski and Chris Payne, who have both made constructive contributions to the business of the Supporters Trust in the last few months – welcome Derek and Chris!
