HUST Annual General Meeting – New Trust Board Takes Shape
The room was packed for our AGM. Elections took place for the Trust Board 2019/20 and resolutions were considered. The following members will join Richard Tomkins, Joanie Roberts and Tony Taylor on the Trust board.
Peter is a season ticket holder and lifelong supporter of football at Edgar Street. He is a retired Bank Manager and subsequently a Company Director, with extensive experience of recruitment and staff management together with investigations in the financial sector. While having every faith in the club’s board, he strongly believes that our fans are the heart of the club and that they should have a clear and strong voice in the way the club is run.
Michael is a retired headteacher from Ledbury. He grew up in Hereford and has been a life-long supporter of the club. One of Michael’s aims for HUST is to promote the Trust and the Club in the town of Ledbury and the surrounding area.
Nigel is a retired director and owner/part owner in several businesses. He has expertise in sales, marketing and finance. A supporter since the 1990s, Nigel invested in the phoenix Hereford FC. His aims are to increase HUST membership, introduce HUST and HFC supporter forums to provide updates on current position and future needs, and to develop a 5-year plan towards Football League status whilst maintaining a sustainable club.
A supporter since 1990, Jamie served 22 years in the Army. He is a keen volunteer at the club in the role of First Aider. Jamie sees the club as part of our whole community and its triumphs and defeats affect us all. “We need to have a strong and sustainable club so that past events do not repeat themselves.”
Richard’s first match was in 1975 and he’s lived and worked in Herefordshire all his life. He’s held volunteer positions at both HUFC and HFC, including chair and vice chair of the Vice Presidents Club, host of the Executive club, secretary at HFC board meetings and Parent Liaison Officer at the HFC Academy. Richard is aiming to improve cohesion between the Club and the Trust.
