Amanda Staveley delivers strong message to Newcastle United fans after 'resignation' reports

Amanda Staveley has pledged her future to Newcastle United and insisted she has no intention of leaving her post - assuring supporters she is here to stay.

The Ripon financier has been on club business in Saudi Arabia but is expected back in the director's box for next week's midweek Premier League game at Crystal Palace. As reported by Chronicle Live earlier this week, "resignations" stated on documents by Companies House were merely company housekeeping and Staveley and co-director Jamie Reuben remain fully committed to the black and white cause.

Posting on Instagram, Staveley said: "Just arrived back from Saudi and noticed a lot of messages from fans concerned that I had stepped down from my role as a Director of Newcastle United. I have not - the changes made last week were purely administrative, to non trading subsidiaries.

"After the takeover, Jamie and I stepped in as directors of all companies until we could build an executive team. We remain on the ‘top-co’ and the Board.

"I’d like to thank everyone for their incredible support over the last few years, and particularly for people taking the time to share their thoughts. We have the best fans in the world- and I am privileged and proud to be a part of your community."

The confusion earlier this week came from the fact that Newcastle United Football Club Limited is a dormant company and on the papers covering Newcastle United Football Company Limited, Staveley and Reuben remain active. Staveley has resigned from a host of other Newcastle United companies and it comes after seeing her initial 10 percent shareholding in the club diluted to six percent earlier this year following a cash injection by fellow investors.

Among the other clubs Staveley has resigned from according to Companies House files are, Newcastle united Group Limited, Newcastle United Television Limited, St James' Park Limited, Newcastle United Promotions Limited and NUFC Limited.
