The Trust

Our current constitution, which was adopted in 2024, uses model clauses issued in 2022 by The Football Supporters’ Association, to ensure that Supporters’ Trusts operate in a democratic, transparent and accountable manner. 

We hold Annual General Meetings, normally in June. At those meetings, the members of our Trust elect a Board of Directors, comprising at least 6 (but not more than 12) people. The directors can themselves then co-opt up to 4 additional directors, whose specialist skills and experience are considered to benefit the Trust.

All directors normally meet online at 7pm on the second Wednesday of each month, to co-ordinate our Trust’s day-to-day activities. Any member of our Trust can request permission to attend Board Meetings as an observer by emailing Directors also fill various roles around the stadium (including at our Trust’s pod in the Fan Village) on home matchdays, as well as at other events. Please feel free to chat with any of our directors at any time about any topic. They normally serve for a term of two years, but can seek re-election when that term expires. 

Brief biographical details are given below of our current directors. They have two characteristics in common. First, a passion for Lincoln City FC. Secondly, a willingness to work actively for the Trust on a voluntary basis: there are no passengers. Their backgrounds, experience and particular interests are however very diverse. Collectively, they combine to form a very effective team. If you would like to join the team, especially if you have experience or interests that enable you to fill any gaps in the services that we provide, please seek election at the next AGM: nomination forms will be circulated beforehand.
