My name is Mark Macdougall aka Dougie, 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 52 years old, married, with two daughters who are 21 and 19 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.
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 family run businesses, A1 Plastics Wxm Ltd. We sponsor the club by advertising.
My strengths are in sale and marketing. I have a lot of contacts in a variety of business. I’m very proactive, confident and articulate. A hands-on guy that likes to get things done and I feel this would be a major benefit to the WST board, if I was elected.
I’ve also helped at the preseason tour in Portugal. I arranged for transport for the fans to get back and too, to the various venues and helped sell the merchandise. I have also helped at several events The Chase held at the Railway Club and an evening with Joey Jones and Micky Thomas which was at the Centenary Club for the supporter’s trust.
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 47 years home and away.
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.
Nominated by Stuart Lewis and Ben Wright
