WILLIAMS, Mark

Candidates StatementMark Williams

MWilliamsI am a 39 year old qualified accountant from Wrexham and I am currently employed as a Finance Director of a local Wrexham company and also a Trustee of a Wrexham based charity.

I have been a member of Wrexham Supporters Trust since the ‘Beer a week’ fund raising initiative and I have been a Society Board member since my first election in 2004.

Since my last election in 2016 I have taken on additional responsibilities at the Football Club in the form of Match Day Operations. This new role involves me working with the Stadium Manager and Chief Safety Officer in the days prior to matchdays on planning matters, especially for the high-profile games, and also providing operational support and advice on matchdays. It has been rewarding to work with so many people as part of these additional responsibilities and to see the passion and pride they have in working for the Club first hand.

In my last election I stated that I was planning to look at introducing new systems in the Hospitality and Concourse bars and after researching a number of alternatives solutions I am delighted that I have Board approval to introduce these systems over the summer in time for the new season. This will improve the experience for all supporters that use the stadium on match and non matchdays, by speeding up the transaction process with the introduction of card payment facilities throughout the stadium.

The Club will also benefit from improved management reporting from these new systems and this will build on improvements I have introduced in this area. I have introduced a matchday revenue report that compares actual revenue to budget after each game and this allows the Club Board to make informed decisions with up-to-date financial information in advance of the monthly management accounts. In addition, I have introduced a department KPI sheet to keep the Society Board informed on the financial performance of the Club to budget set on a monthly basis along with a cash flow forecast.

If re-elected to the Society Board I will look to continue to improve on the Club’s systems and the production of timely information to Departmental Managers to make informed decisions. This will involve changes to our retail, accounting and ticket systems that will also allow the Club to benefit from the latest technology.

I believe improvements in the Club’s systems will improve the financial performance of the Club and therefore result in increased playing budget for the first team and deliver on field success for the Club.

THORLEY, Mark

Candidates StatementMark Thorley

MThorleyMy Why - What I believe

Wrexham is a special club, and I have tremendous pride in being a club owner. Its a place I call home and a place where I belong. Having such pride and ownership drives my motivation to do more and have a stronger part in the clubs future. I believe in grass roots football and giving opportunities to the communitties around the club to be part of Wrexham, and allowing that boy or girl to kick a ball and play for us.

What I believe the club needs

I believe we need more doers, and less talkers - and I want to move myself from someone who speaks about wrexham to someone who does something! I believe we need to invest more in activities within the community and identify ways in which we can be relevant to the generations of the future.

What I’ll do

The decision to make this application did not come lightly - I know what it will take to be a good trust board member - it will take time and dedication, to attend meetings, develop ideas and put them into action - as well as hard work to raise funds and participate in activities that will drive the club trust forward. All of this I’m willing to do for the love of the club and the passion I want to share. I will bring with me the skills I have from my role as a Project Manager - I have great people skills and an ability to make connections and empathise with others. Equally I’m a great problem solver and ideas person - and being practical and hard working I demonstrate the tenacity needed in a role of this nature. I am a season ticket holder and have been for many years and take my son of 9 to see the match most weeks - and theres nothing I like more than to see his passion grow.

Who I am

I am 42 years old, and live in Calcoed near Holywell. I live there with my wife of 12 years and son who is 9, soon to be 10 in July. I am a proud Welshman and strongly believe in the Welsh heritage.

I have worked in social care for the last 15 years, beginning my career with 10 years working for the local authority as a manager of a mental health project, to more recently managing a social enterprise, for individuals with learning disabilities.

Being a keen Wrexham fan I enjoy watching the team play their home matches and have been fortunate to attend some away matches. Football is a big part of my life, and I catch any local game when I’m not able to attend the Wrexham game, enjoying watching the grass roots of the game. My son plays for the local community club, so I’m often found on the sidelines of his games cheering him on! Other than the football I’m a keen DIY’er and also enjoy walking when time permits.

I feel I would be an asset to the club as trust board member and would give it my best efforts and would welcome the opportunity to give back to the club that has given me so much over the years.

STILL, Bryan

Candidates StatementBryan Still

BStillMy name is Bryan Still and I have been a Wrexham supporter since the age of six. Married with two children, my son is also an avid Wrexham fan and we are both season ticket holders. I am self employed and run a successful small Taxi business in the area.

Like so many fans, it was my father who took me to my first game. That was a home match against Halifax Town in November 1972 and, even though it ended in a drab goalless draw, I was hooked and I’ve been coming to the Racecourse ever since.

The family even sponsored the club back in the mid to late 1970s when they ran The Miners Arms Pubic House in Brymbo, having an advert in the matchday programme.

Over the years I have seen the highs and lows, from the Football League Third Division Championship winning side of 1978 to the despair of relegation into Non-League football in 2008.

Coming from London, my late father was a big Arsenal fan so you can imagine the fun I had when we beat them in the F.A. Cup in 1992. It was a day I will certainly never forget!

In 2001 I gradually started getting involved with the matchday sales of the club’s programme and within a few years began contributing to it.

As a keen programme collector, I helped re-open the Programme Shop in 2011 and gradually became more involved in various other aspects of the matchday operations.

As such, since then I have helped:

  • Organise the matchday programme sales
  • Collect the team line ups from the respective managers following their pre-match meeting with the Match Officials
  • Organise the matchday team sheet production and subsequent distribution to the Media and Hospitality Areas
  • Organise the matchday raffles with Promotions staff
  • Arranging for players to sign merchandise for the Commercial Department
  • Arranging for the collection of Players’ Matchday tickets
  • Arranging the payment of the Match Officials after the game for the club secretary

In 2014 I was asked to be the Matchday Operations Manager for the club’s 150th Anniversary game against Grimsby Town and received a letter of commendation from the club’s Board of Directors for my efforts.

I believe that this experience gives me a unique insight into the club’s matchday operations and, as such, I am keen to become more involved in the whole matchday organisation.

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.
