COUNTY TAKEOVER MOVES CLOSER

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

THE pro­posed fan takeover of League Two side New­port County has moved a step closer af­ter the Sup­port­ers Trust were drafted in to re­place the cur­rent board, writes Carl Field.

In a move driven by for­mer chair­man Les Scadding, the cur­rent board was asked to step aside to make way for an in­terim board of Trust mem­bers.

For­mer di­rec­tor Tony Pring has been ap­pointed in­terim chair­man and will be sup­ported on the board by Jon Bowkett, Gavin Fox­hall and Shaun John­son. Jason Turner, the club’s gen­eral man­ager, has joined the board as chief ex­ec­u­tive.

Scadding said: “I would like to thank the mem­bers of the pre­vi­ous board for all their hard work, un­der dif­fi­cult cir­cum­stances.

“I am hope­ful that this will now mean that the Trust and Sup­port­ers Di­rect will be able to com­plete the due dili­gence.”
