Robins Trust Fan Elected Director Position – Message From Clive Gowing

This was discussed with the Trust board and I stated on record to both the club board and trust board that a firm arrangement needed to be in place by the Trust AGM so this could be communicated to the Trust members. This still remained in place until the echo contacted me last week stating they would be running an article with or without my input.
