YORK City Supporters’ Trust have been invited to give evidence to the Government’s fan-led review of football governance.

They will take part in an hour-long, one-to-one session with an expert panel next Monday.

The trust say their evidence will cover many aspects of the York City story over the past two decades, including club governance, financial controls, the rights of fan shareholders, fan engagement, reporting and monitoring, securing of loans against community assets, planning policies, company law and wider regulatory matters.

Trust chairman Mike Brown said: “The Government’s review session provides an opportunity for us to share the many challenges faced by York City fans over the past 20 years.

"We hope it will bring about much-needed change in the governance of the game and behaviour of club owners and directors in the years to come. Football is nothing without the fans.”

The review panel includes Tracey Crouch MP (chair), Kevin Miles (chief executive, The Football Supporters’ Association), Roy Hodgson (former Crystal Palace and England manager), Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale (chief executive, Everton), Clarke Carlisle (former Burnley player and former chair of Professional Footballers' Association), Dan Jones (partner, Football Finance), Dawn Airey (chair, FA Women’s Super League), David Mahoney (chief operating officer, England & Wales Cricket Board), James Tedford (former secretary, Southport), Godric Smith (director, Cambridge United) and Danny Finkelstein (independent member).
