The Canaries Trust is delighted to announce that we have recently appointed 3 new board members:
I’ve always been a canary, attending my first match in 1990 aged 9. My dad was a chief steward and I grew up meeting stars like Ruel Fox and Robert Fleck. After moving to Chesterfield in 2011, my love for NCFC has grown (absence makes the heart grow fonder) and was thrilled to be given the chance to join the trust in a more official role. The trust gives the fans a voice, and fans are what makes a football club.
Norfolk born and bred and proud to be so, attended my first match at Carrow Rd in 1967 and hooked ever since. I have always worked within the county and with the people of Norfolk. I discovered cookery in the 80’s, became a massive ‘foodie’ and ended up owning and running a small cafe in Burnham Market, I now manage “Joy of Food’ a cookery skills programme for Norfolk County Council. Outside of work I try to keep fit, ( a pay off against eating….and getting old!) I have my season ticket in the South Stand and I like to think I have a balanced view on all things Norwich City, having seen the club go through many cycles of success and failure. I believe the supporters are a vital part of any club and love the passion, opinions and debate that being a supporter brings. I hope to bring something to the board – exactly what I am not sure, but am convinced I can make a contribution.
I’m born and bred in Norwich and have supported the Canaries since 1992-93 season and attended my first match in 1994 a dull 0-0 vs Sheffield United for my 8th birthday. I’ve held a season ticket in the Gefforey Watling City Stand Wensum Section since 2007-8 season and have been through the good and bad of the last decade of the club from that vantage point. And yes – I’ve argued with the managers there when times have gone bad.
We are still on the lookout for volunteers to join the Trust board, to work with us on a number of ongoing initiatives. This is a fantastic opportunity to get more involved in our relationship with our football club, not just attending matches and supporting the team on a match day, but helping to develop relationships and influence the Club, particularly in relation to fan engagement, inclusivity and wider football issues.
