CFU AGM 2021

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of City Fans United and Chester Football Club will be held on Thursday, 4th November 2021 at 7.30pm.

The meeting will be held by Zoom due to current public health guidance.  Members who not able to attend by Zoom, can submit votes using the proxy form direct to the Returning Officer (Mr Philip Young).


If you have any questions for the AGM, please send these to CFU Secretary Christine Robson at Nearer the date of the meeting, members will be sent a link to join through Zoom on the night.


The following papers are now available:


Draft minutes of the AGM 2020


Statement of Comprehensive Income and Statement of Financial Position for the year ended May 2021.

Candidate Manifestos

Proxy form

A full set of the Unaudited Financial Statements with accompanying Independent Accountants Report will be posted on the CFU website and copies may be obtained on request.


The process relating to the election of directors has been overseen by the Election Management Group which includes Philip Young from Bury FC acting as external scrutineer and returning officer.


Four directors’ posts were advertised as available, and three nominations were received and confirmed as eligible by the Election Management Group.


The candidates have each provided a manifesto containing information about themselves together with a photograph and these can be found above.


As the number of candidates does not equal or exceed the available places, there will be no election but an affirmative ballot at the AGM.  Each candidate will be put before the meeting for the approval of members.  To be elected each candidate must receive the support of more than half those present at the Zoom meeting and those who are not able to attend, have expressed their preference, by returning the proxy form.


If you are unable to attend the Zoom AGM it is therefore important that you complete the proxy form which is confidential and will be opened by the Returning Officer.  The proxy form will not be seen by anyone at CFU/Chester Football Club.  If you are able to attend the Zoom AGM you do not need to return the proxy form as you will be able to show your support at the meeting.


What to do next

If you are attending the AGM by Zoom, you do not need to take any action other than to read the enclosed papers.  If you are not able to attend by Zoom, please complete the proxy form and send it to Philip Young, the Returning Officer using the home address at the bottom of the proxy form.  Please do not return the form to the Deva Stadium.


And finally

The AGM is a key time for CFU members and we are hoping for a good attendance at this meeting.  You will see there are some very important items on the agenda.  For those attending it would be helpful if you could log into the Zoom app promptly on the night so that we can start on time.
