At our recent AGM, members present approved a proposal to reduce membership of the Co-operative to £2 for all categories 16 and over. The initiative aims to significantly boost membership and accordingly, give the supporters an effective voice and provide feedback to the club via the NTSC Supporter Director.
Both existing members and those wishing to join the Co-operative will be able to do so by visiting the NTSC table in the Sports Bar prior to all first team games. In addition, we intend to operate a table inside the main turnstile on match days.
We hope that this initiative will make membership affordable to all and hope supporters will take this opportunity of joining the Co-operative, so that we can continue our quest to improve the fan experience.
Presently membership is restricted to those aged 16 and above, due to the fact that only over 16s are allowed to vote on Co-operative issues and also be allocated a £1 share. It is our intention to offer free membership to under 16s in the near future and will be looking at what we can offer junior members. An announcement in this respect will be made in due course.
Members can make a discretionary donation to The Co-operative, if they so wish.
Having been invited by Nuneaton Town FC to put forward a board member for the newly-created position of Supporter-Director, the board of Nuneaton Town Supporters’ Co-operative have nominated Andy Briggs to take up the position.
Nuneaton born and bred, 42 year old Andy has supported the Boro for as long as he can remember, having attended his first game with his great-grandfather at the age of 3.
As a Regional Director for specialist plant-hire company, Nationwide Platforms, Andy has a significant amount of operational management experience.
Andy joined the board of the newly formed Nuneaton Town Supporters’
Co-operative back in 2011 as he firmly believes that increased supporter involvement in the running of the football club is vital if the football club is to be successful in the long-term. Following his nomination after a unanimous vote by the committee, he has agreed to represent the Co-operative on the Football Club board in the newly created role.
Following an initial meeting with Chairman Lee Thorn, Andy said: “The
Co-operative and the club have been in discussions for a while regarding the appointment of a supporter-director, and both parties feel the time is now right. This is a huge step forward in building stronger relations between the club, the supporters, and hopefully the wider community. I’d encourage every supporter to join the Co-operative and I feel very positive that the club have made this step forward.”
This will fulfil one of our major aims, namely, to encourage and promote the principle of supporter representation on the board of any company owning or controlling the Club and ultimately to be the vehicle for democratic elections to the board.
The Co-operative will have no financial responsibility to the football club under the arrangement and a code of conduct has been signed by both parties in accordance with Supporters Direct guidance. Read Code of Conduct
