Newport County Supporters Trust thanks Scadding as takeover moves closer

"Newport County Supporters Trust Board has been working closely with majority shareholder and owner of the club, Les Scadding over recent weeks.

"Both parties have been working hard to achieve a common goal with Les's desire to help the Trust gain ownership, as he believes this is in the best interests of the club.

"He is keen to leave a legacy that builds upon his significant financial investment and recent success of returning to the football league.

"To move towards this position Les has agreed, with immediate effect, that the supporters trust will act as his nominated representative(s) on the Newport County AFC board whilst the trust continue to examine the interest in, and viability of, transferring the controlling shareholding to the supporters trust."

A spokesperson for the trust said:

"The Supporters Trust Board are extremely grateful for Les’s continued support.

"This is an excellent opportunity for the supporters to own the club and to this end we would urge supporters to come along to the meeting on Friday at The Riverfront Theatre at 7pm to listen to the proposals and plans for the future of our club, as without the support of all our fans this opportunity will be difficult to achieve."
