The Trust board are saying a fond farewell to our colleague Nathan Mattick who has decided to stand down from his role in order to take up an exciting new opportunity.

Nathan has been a key contributor to the Trust for the past five years, providing invaluable input in meetings and as one of our matchday volunteers.

A keen referee, Nathan has taken up the post on the national board of the referees association and felt he wanted to dedicate his focus to his new role, so informed the Trust of his desire to stand down.

Trust chair James Young said: "Nathan has become a friend of us all on the Trust board over the past five years and we will miss his input, but we're so proud of him taking up his new role.

"Refereeing has long been a passion of his - he played a key role in organising a Trust event with former Premier League referee Chris Foy a few years ago - and we couldn't be happier for him to be taking up this new role.

"While we are obviously disappointed to be losing him from our board, he will remain a big friend of the Trust and for all of us on the Trust board.

"He has also agreed to keep helping both the Trust and club as a matchday volunteer when he's available and to assist our SLO Jenny Hancock with vital disability audit work at the club."

Nathan added: "It's been a pleasure to be a part of a fantastic team for the past five years, I have enjoyed my time being part of the Robins Trust.

"I will continue to support the Trust in any way, shape or form I can, I will continue to be a matchday volunteer next season and I wish the Robins Trust the best for the future."

The Trust are pleased to confirm that two new board members have been co-opted to the board ahead of the next round of elections, which will be held towards the end of the year.

Lindsay Gray and Tom Wade joined the other seven board members for a virtual board meeting on Monday evening and both confirmed that they wished to join the board.

James added: "We welcome both Lindsay and Tom to the board and look forward to the contributions that they will make in the coming months.

"Both played a full role in our meeting and were brimming with enthusiasm and ideas, which was great to see.

"It's going to be a busy few months for the Trust as we look to relaunch memberships after choosing to adopt a freeze through the Covid pandemic.

"Having two fresh faces and some new ideas on the Board is timely, and we're really pleased to welcome both Lindsay and Tom to their roles on the board."
