The Leeds United Supporters Trust’s annual general meeting, held in Leeds on Saturday and detailed in last week’s column, ratified the election of six new faces to the group’s board.
The new board members are: Dave Carrington, Emma Carrington, Jon Howe, Ian McMullen, Steve White, plus one supporter who asked for their details not to be published by the Evening Post. The Trust’s chairman, Michael Green, revealed at the AGM how losses of more than £2,000 had been turned into a £1,000 surplus during what he described as a “difficult time for the Trust.”
Leeds United have seconded the experienced Liz Coley to cover the role of club secretary following the sacking of Stuart Hayton last month.
Hayton, a former Wigan Athletic and Liverpool employee, was dismissed from his post after 15 months on the day before Leeds’ 1-0 victory over Ipswich Town. Neither he nor the club have made any comment about the reasons behind his departure.
Coley, who is an associate at Leeds solicitors Walker Morris, has a CV showing previous jobs at Fulham, West Ham United, Southampton and the Football Association.
Her last full-time post in football, as Sunderland’s club secretary, ended shortly after an administrative mix-up which saw South Korean striker Ji Dong-Won play in four games despite being ineligible.
