ROBERTS, Alun

Candidate Statement - John ALUN Roberts

ARoberts My name is Alun Roberts and, although I was born in South Wales, refer to myself as a North Walian and have supported Wrexham since about 1964 when I came with my father and older brother. Both my son and I are currently Season Ticket holders with the football club and we have been WST members for a few years now.

My background is in Computing and Education. I’ve taught at all levels from Primary

School, through Secondary School into Tertiary Education including some HigherLevel courses. During my time at NEWI / Yale College, I was a Team Leader on a variety of courses. I organised and participated in European links with industries and educational establishments from within the countries visited. I am bilingual with also a smattering of basic Italian.  

Almost 20 years ago now, due to mental health issues and bullying, I gave up my teaching career. After a gap of 3 years, during which time I virtually didn’t leave my home, I, subsequently, started undertaking private tuition in Maths for children and young people between ages 7-16+. For me, one of the major reasons and aims from these sessions was not only to teach the subject but to engender confidence in the tutees towards the topic. These children and young people would come to me because they were struggling. So, if I could increase their confidence and wherewithal in the subject to enable them to benefit more during a school class situation that would provide me with a huge sense of satisfaction.

Also, during this time, I set up a photography business which was predominantly geared towards local day nurseries and primary schools providing photographic packs for the parents to buy. I also undertook event photography including school proms and charity events. I also undertake portrait photography too.

I am currently the official photographer, so you will see me pitchside at virtually every game, home or away, and often provide the images not only for the club website and programme but also for various publications such as the Non-League Paper, Daily Post and the Leader. Often, images from matches will be posted on social media to keep fans informed of match situations etc.

I appreciate the work of the Wrexham Inclusion Football Club, due my history, and am in full admiration for the efforts that the folks who lead it put in. I’m also in admiration for those time and effort put in by those involved with the DSA too.

With my education, presentation, computing and photographic background I’d hope I have sufficient skills to be able to assist the WST in a variety of ways. I would like to think I am approachable and conscientious with a pleasant manner.

We have been out of the EFL for far too long now. We are, in essence, an EFL team in waiting and, to this end, we need ALL supporters backing the club to ensure that it finally reaches the desired haven of the EFL. It’s OurClub and OurFuture, so all hands to the pump and onwards we go TogetherStronger. So I am putting my name forward to assist the club to move forwards to the EFL and beyond.

RHODES, Simon

Candidate’s StatementSimon Rhodes

SRhodes The stability that the Trust has brought to the club through dedication, hard work and sheer bloody mindedness is to be applauded, admired and appreciated. During the last 8 months, I’ve been lucky to have worked alongside this team as a Co-opted member on the revenue generation team, I’m now at a stage where I want to have a bigger impact and bring my skills and knowledge to work to help take us to the next level on and as importantly off the field.

I have been in sales roles for over 25 years and for the last 15 been a Commercial Director for a global FTSE 250 Business, these roles have given me a wealth of extensive and real knowledge in terms of revenue generation, organisational growth and adapting business structures to changing markets, all these skills I believe would bring a practical benefit to the Trust and the club.

Widely connected within the local business world, I will seek to build on these connections and turn them into revenue opportunities to benefit both the Trust and the Club and raise our profile within our community. I’m direct, honest and open minded. I guarantee I will challenge decisions and mind sets if elected to make sure the Trust and the Club we love comes first.

MACDOUGALL, Mark

Candidates Statement– Mark Macdougall

MMacdougallMy name is Mark Macdougall, I wish to stand for one of the vacancies on the Wrexham Supporters Trust board.

I have seen the Wrexham Supporters Trust have made some fantastic advances in the past few year and I would like to contribute to the Wrexham supporters trust and their progress. I am, as the Wrexham supporters trust are only interested in one thing and that is bringing the club back to where it should be! and that is in the football league and further, with the right people behind it!

I am 51 years old, married, with two daughters who are 20 and 18 and a step son of 33 who is also a member of the Wrexham supporters trust and supports Wrexham, my wife works as a teaching assistant at a local primary school. We have lived in Wrexham all our lives. I play pool for the Turf and have also played for Wales and managed the under 21’s pool team.

My background involves working in sales selling double glazing for several high-profile companies, which I have done for over 30 years. I now have my own businesses, which are A 1 Plastics, Windows and Doors Ltd and my second company is Wrexham Conservatories which both are home improvements companies.

I would bring a vast knowledge of sales and how to negotiate with people. and marketing, I am very proactive, I am confident and articulate, I have a lot of contacts in the business and sporting world. I have helped raise funds for a mini bus for my wife’s school and for the Wales junior pool team players to raise money for them to represent Wales overseas and the local Sunday league football teams.

If I am elected have several ideas to bring revenue to the club and help take the club forward. As I own my own business I will be able to give as much time as is needed in developing ideas and making the trust board the best and Wrexham Association Football Club the best they can be.

I have been a member of the Wrexham supporters trust from its start also I have been a Wrexham fan for 46 years home and away. My wife’s Grandfather even helped build the steps in the stadium in the early days! So, as you can see the club is very close not just to my heart but also my family. But more than anything as a Wrexham FC supporter I am passionate in my desire to help achieve the best possible for our town club. On this basis, I submit my candidacy for the role as trust board.

LLOYD, Stephen

Candidates StatementStephen Lloyd

slloydMy name is Stephen Lloyd and I am a 47-year-old Psychiatric Nurse working with children and young people with the NHS. I was born in Wrexham where I have lived all my life and am married with one daughter who spreads the gospel of Wrexham AFC from her Birmingham location. I am a season ticket holder in the Hays travel Stand and attend with my dad, Bill, who is 75 and responsible for my love of football and all things Wrexham AFC, elder brother, John and nephew, Carwyn. We have been season ticket holders in the stand since it was built in 1999 missing very few games since then.

I attended my first game in at The Racecourse on 10th April 1976 which resulted in a 3-0 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday and can remember attending many great games, especially under the floodlights, over the next few years which were some of the greatest in the clubs’ history. I have so many happy memories of supporting The Town over the years from the big European ties and FA Cup games, Wembley and the Millennium Stadium right through to the early rounds of the FA Trophy and Welsh Cup games where a last minute winner still means everything.

I have been a member of the WST for many years and am really proud of how well the club has managed to move forward since taking over the running of the club which was financially on its knees. Unfortunately, football fortune has not been as kind to us as we’d all hoped as we still find ourselves in the National League although the club continues to grow from strength to strength with many of its excellent community ventures. I believe we are in a privileged position in that we are masters of our own destiny and have become a fine example of what can be achieved when the community backs the club. I have the utmost respect for every single Wrexham AFC supporter and feel the way to move forward is to continue engaging with the all fans and listening to their ideas and concerns as we all want the club to be successful.

I have volunteered at the Wrexham AFC for 8 years now and can be found working in the club shop on a match day selling match tickets and interacting with supporters. I am proud again of the position Wrexham AFC supporters have managed to get our fine club to as when I started volunteering it was at the pop up stall the WST started in town on a Saturday. Helping run the stall in all weathers with a limited stock of mugs, ice scrapers and badges to being part of working at a fully professional organisation with a fantastic range of stock is under a roof (it’s the little things!) is a great achievement. I have also helped out in our Christmas and FA Trophy final stores on a regular basis where work permitted. I have also ably assisted Wrex the Dragon on many community ventures, regularly stewarded the supporters’ coaches at away games and helped out with many club open days and functions when there has been a role for me to fulfil.

As a trained Mental Health Nurse I am a passionate about people and believe in the principles of supporting others and the community. Should fellow supporters vote for me to serve on the board I would like to use my time to promote the voices of all supporters. With my passion for the Wrexham AFC, the community and for supporting people I hope to build on the great work which Wrexham AFC has already started. I will guarantee I will work as hard as possible to provide a platform for our club to continue to thrive both on and off the field.

Many thanks,

Stephen Lloyd
