The Trust board welcomed Tom Cliffe to its November meeting, wishing him well in his new role and discussing the topical issue of the Sixfields stand and land development. Tom will be welcome to join future monthly board meetings as and when is convenient to him.
Board representatives to meet with NTFC chairman Kelvin Thomas
Board representatives have been invited by the club to a meeting with chairman Kelvin Thomas and his executive team to discuss the stand and land development, with a proposed deal between Northampton Town FC and West Northamptonshire Council due for agreement and ratification in December. The Trust will be seeking further detail about the structure of the proposed deal and information about what will be going in the stand and what will be built on the land around the stadium.
Annual general meeting date confirmed
The Trust’s annual general meeting will take place via Zoom on the evening of Thursday 27 January. Three board positions are vacant.
Board Secretary position
Helen Hickman is to step down as the Trust board secretary following the next Annual General meeting after 12 years in the role. We are therefore on the lookout for a new Board Secretary – if you are interested, please email us at email@example.com for more information or to organise a chat. It is a non-director position which essentially involves taking minutes of board meetings and dealing with correspondence. The role is not tremendously time consuming, the busiest time involves the preparation for the AGM which is usually held during the winter months.
With the full report from Tracey Crouch on football reform imminent, the Football Conversation will re-start following the report’s publication.
Paul Town stadium art
The Trust also welcomed stadium artist Paul Town to its monthly meeting – Paul explained how his work can showcase stadia in a bespoke way and the board will consider commissioning a design which will be made available for fans to purchase as part of the Trust’s 30th anniversary celebration next year.
