SOME new faces will be welcomed on to the board of City Fans United this evening.
The AGM for the supporters’ group – whose members each have an individual stake in Chester FC – will be held in the Blues Bar at the Exacta Stadium, starting at 7.30pm.
The results of this year’s election for board members will be announced.
Votes have already been cast by CFU members, who were presented with manifestos from each of the nominees earlier this month.
Chairman Chris Pilsbury, vice-chairman Mike Vickers and David Evans are seeking re-election having completed their three-year terms on the board.
Mark Howell and Campbell Smith have stepped down in the last 12 months, meaning there are a total of five places to be filled.
Pilsbury, Vickers and Evans are seeking re-election and there are six other candidates: Steve Ashton, John Martin, Pete Newman, Tony Durkin, Steve Povey and Howell, who is seeking a return to the boardroom after stepping down in July.
All candidates are either currently working in some capacity at Chester FC or have done so in the recent past.
Accounts already released to CFU members show that the football club made a net loss of £2,970 in the last financial year.
Fans will get their opportunity to discuss ways of bringing more money into the club at this evening’s meeting.
