Apologies from board members: Paul I, Martyn O.
1. Minutes of last meeting and matters arising
Jonathan O’Byrne reported on behalf of the group organising the fundraising project for Kevin Lee which will be launched shortly. A new website has been created using the Trust's current hosting service and a separate bank account is now open. The target for the project will be to raise £3,800 over the coming season and donations have already been received. A match between supporters and players will be held on Sunday 16 September.
Following on from the enforced retirement of Kevin Lee through injury, Liam Watson wishes to appoint Kevin Lee as part of his backroom staff.
An independent group of supporters will be fund raising throughout the course of the season to raise £3,800. The £3,800 will pay to keep Kevin, a highly influential part of the 2009/10 Blue Square North Championship side and a key component of the clubs rise to prominence in the Blue Square Bet Premier as part of the backroom staff throughout the course of the season.

A discount will apply if there are more than 30 bookings for either of the above trips. The Trust has the right to cancel any coaches should there be insufficient bookings.
The weather forecast is much brighter for Sunday so it should be a good day for the annual cricket match between a Liam Watson X1 and a Supporters X1 which is at The Rookery with a 2pm start.
There are still a couple of places available in the supporters team. If you would like to take part contact team manager Phil Carder either by e-mail to email@example.com or phone 07871-991474.
