Newcastle United Foundation Appoints New Trustees To Their Board

Newcastle United Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment of two new Trustees, Steve Harper and Mick Thompson.

Steve remains the longest serving player in the history of Newcastle United and was a professional at the club from 1993-2013.   He asked the Foundation to organise his ’20 Year Charity Match’ of NUFC Legends v AC Milan Glorie in September 2013.   All of the profits from this game were distributed to six local charities including Newcastle United Foundation.

Steve is also a UEFA A licensed coach and an Ambassador for Northumberland FA.  As well as being an owner of the successful Oddballs boxer short company he also works part-time for both the Premier League and the BBC. He is a Trustee of the Oddballs Foundation and a proud Patron of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

Mick is the well-respected former Office Senior Partner of KPMG Newcastle, having spent 21 years as an Audit Partner before retiring in March 2018. While at KPMG he had wide experience working with leading North East private, public sector and plc organisations. Mick is also a Trustee the Tyne and Wear Building Presentation Trust and Treasurer of the Lord’s Taverners in Northumberland and Durham.

John Marshall, Chair of Trustees said “We are thrilled to welcome Steve and Mick on board.  We recently celebrated 10 successful years and know their enthusiasm, knowledge and experience will help us take the Foundation forward”.

Steve and Mick join the existing Foundation Board,  John Marshall (Chair), Lee Charnley, Claire Alexander,  Brian Thorpe, Judith Doyle  and Graeme Mason.
