Just to update everyone on the NUST elections for the 5 available board positions. Following our call for nominations we received a number of requests for candidate packs. At the date of the deadline for candidates, some people had dropped out of the process and we received 5 correctly completed candidate nomination forms.
As we have an equal number of board positions and candidates there is no need for an election to follow and the candidates will join the board in due course.
We would like to thank everyone who showed an interest in standing.
The 3 new candidates who join the board are : Graeme Cansdale, Ciaran Donaghy and Michael Martin, while Peter Fanning and Colin Whittle are deemed re-elected.
As the only formally constituted fans organisation available to all Newcastle United supporters to join, affiliated to national supporter organisations the Football Supporters Federation and Supporters Direct, we feel that the Trust has an important role to play in the future of Newcastle United. We shall continue to work on behalf of the membership to ensure that our aims and objectives can be fulfilled. We will shortly be convening the Board and will be in contact with members regarding a number of initiatives .
Can we thank you for your continued support in what are challenging times for Newcastle United Supporters.
