New Vice Chair elected as Tracey Marsh steps down from Trust Board

David Craig has been elected Vice Chair of the Trust following the decision of Tracey Marsh to step down from the Trust board after almost four years service. Tim Hartley has been re-elected as Chair.

David Craig has been a member of the Trust board since the first elections and as project manager of the Fred Keenor Statue Appeal has spearheaded the campaign, with fellow board member Phillip Nifield, to raise the £85,000 needed to erect a statue to honour the captain of Cardiff City’s 1927 FA Cup winning team. That target has been reached and the statue will be erected at the stadium later this year.

Tracey was one of the founders of the Trust and has been a strong advocate of supporters’ rights. She has worked tirelessly on behalf of City fans and has brought many new members to the Trust.

Trust Chair Tim Hartley said: “I would like to congratulate David on his appointment and I’m sure he will continue to make an excellent contribution to the work of the Trust.

“I would also like to thank Tracey for all her hard work on behalf of the fans, particularly her contribution to the community and membership groups. She has been an important member of the team and is a brilliant organiser.

“The success of the players’ evenings to remember our fantastic victories over Real Madrid and Leeds was down to her efforts. Despite standing down from the board, I am glad that Tracey will continue to contribute to the Trust’s work over the next season.”
