THE Newport County AFC Supporters’ Trust has launched the election process to fill five vacant positions on the Supporters Trust board.

Current elected directors Mike Everett, Shaun Johnson and Gavin Foxall are due to stand down from the board by rotation at this election, although all can stand for re-election should they so wish.

If the number of valid candidates is the same or less than the number of vacancies then they are to be elected unopposed.

Potential candidates must have been fully paid-up members of the Trust on June 20, 2019.
