NEWPORT County AFC’s Supporters Trust will hold the first of two meetings in January ahead of a new era for the club under Huw Jenkins.

The Exiles have been Trust-owned since 2015 but that will soon change after the former Swansea chairman’s takeover was given the green light by members.

Jenkins is going through the EFL process for taking over the club and has pledged that the Trust will have two places on a new board when the deal is complete.

The owner-elect made it clear when making his pitch to supporters that he wants the Trust to still play a big role in the Exiles.

The annual general meeting will taken place on Thursday, January 25 at 7pm at Rodney Parade, with added time for talks on the future.

“The annual general meeting will receive the financial accounts etc as normal,” read a Trust update.

“This will be immediately followed by a consultative meeting where we can openly explore views and ideas for the future of the Trust.”

Surveys will then take place to gather views and ideas ahead of a special general meeting in March or April.

“This meeting will make decisions on how the Trust will work in the new club ownership model; the adoption of new national model rules; the election of Trust members to both the board of the Trust and the board of the club; membership rates, benefits and recruitment and retention; fund-raising activity and the best uses of Trust funds to support the club in this new era.”
