The Trust Board would like to make members aware of the following changes.
John McQue has resigned with immediate effect. We would like to place on the record our immense gratitude for the work he had done for HUST in the last few years.
John was a founding father of the Trust, and instrumental in having Victoria Park declared an Asset of Community Value. This protection ensures that the football ground cannot be sold by The Council without fans being notified, and having the right to counter bid for it.
John was also an outspoken critic of the Goldberg/Coxall regime, and one of the first to highlight financial irregularities at the club during their tenure. He displayed great tenacity in exposing what damage was being done to the club, especially in the later months of the JPNG reign.
We wish John all the best for the future.
We would also like to take this opportunity to formally announce that Richard Ward has been co-opted onto the Trust Board. Richard has been helping us over the last few busy weeks fielding press enquiries and helping to draft statements. He has also done a lot of excellent liaison work with Supporters Direct.
I am sure you will join us in welcoming Richard to the role and we are sure he is the right man for the job.
