CANDIDATE MANIFESTOS 2023
"If elected I would like to focus on the Trust’s responsibilities within the local, wider and football communities. This will include our partnership with Exeter Community Initiatives and strengthening our bond with the Trusts from other clubs. I would also like to bring smaller, less visible charities into the fold to help them thrive through collaboration and knowledge sharing. This will go hand in hand with the responsibility of representing our members as the majority shareholder of Exeter City Football Club in the ever changing football environment through good choices and sticking to our core values and ethos."
"I am a proven advocate of supporter ownership. Involved for 10 years now (4 as Trust Secretary) the Trust and Club are starting to realise the potential of our model – success built upon sustainability. I have chaired both Trust and Club boards concurrently and believe that we have attained a moment of close synergy without compromising the requirement upon the Trust to oversee, the club/Trust relationship that powers current levels of success. Alongside sustainability we are now developing succession plans that will maintain our ethos and character. I would love my final 3-years to complete to plan!"
"I have been a City fan all my life and season ticket holder for over 30 years.
I’ve volunteered at the Club consistently over a long period of time and currently help serve on the FECRACE bar.
I have skills I believe are well suited to the role of Trustee, including listening, debating, influencing, analysing and decision making.
Having opted for a change in work life balance recently I have time available to devote to the role.
I believe in the Trust model and its continued success."
"I helped draft our Trust constitution and later completed a full review.
I’ve served on the Trust Board for eighteen years in total.
I volunteer running/organising Director for a Day/high-profile matchticket draws; an active member of the Trust OMWG; and help run the FECRACE.
I’m on the FSA National Council, act as Election Management Group Chair/Nominations/Returning Officer for other Trusts and other roles.
I can share my Football/Trust experiences offering help/advice wherever needed.
My debating/influencing/analytical skills are well suited to job of Trustee.
We should continue to support the Trust/Club. The more supporters involved the more successful we can be."
"My reason for standing is to contribute and offer my passion and knowledge to the Trust as member of the bar support team, I have the pleasure to interacting with a varied range of supporters and seeing in real life how fans from VIP to the child on the big bank all have a desire for ECFC success."
"I have useful skill sets to support the Trust in a volunteer capacity. I am part of a team that runs a fans owned club podcast, which is a corporate sponsor of the Trust. In the last year I have built links with the wider community, other clubs, and organisations in football to raise ECFCST profile and raise money for charity. This has involved working in partnership with the Trust. I have attended most meetings and participated as a member to support the shaping of the Trust."
