The press release is as follows.
LINCOLN CITY SUPPORTERS TRUST ELECTIONS DECLARED INVALID.
At a Hearing in Manchester County Court on Monday November 24, elections held by Lincoln City Supporters’ Society (the Trust) in June 2012 and May 2013 were declared invalid, void and of no effect. The elections concerned are those that took place for positions on the Society Board prior to the AGM in May 2013 and the election of a nominated Gold Supporter Director to the Board of Lincoln City Football Club in June 2012. At the Hearing, His Honour Judge Stephen Davies found that candidates for election to the Trust Board in 2013 had been wrongly disqualified from standing and in both cases that the true and correct version of Rule 54(a) had not been applied. The claim had been brought by former Lincoln City Football Club Associate Director Michael Foley who is also a Gold Member of the Supporters’ Trust. Mr. Foley has been awarded costs.
