MP thanks supporters

EREWASH MP Jessica Lee has hosted the official launch of Supporters Direct’s proposals for football club licensing at a debate in Parliament.

The proposals focus on integrating supporters’ trusts into the governance of their clubs.

Miss Lee paid tribute to the work of Supporters Direct, which helped with her campaign to save Ilkeston Town Football Club from extinction after it went into administration in 2010.

The event was well attended by MPs from all parties and included William Gaillard, advisor to the President of UEFA.
