Mark Cordell Having been a Trustee for the past two years I have stepped down to satify the 1/3rd ruling and am standing again for election. Having been heavily involved in the ownership working group and performance and audit committee I am asking for your vote to continue the work completed to date. I promise to use my commercial acumen and belief in make balanced input to board discussions and assist with decisions that will help to secure the long term future of our club.


Doug Gillard If elected I would like to focus on the Trust’s responsibilities within the local, wider and football communities. This will include our new partnership with Exeter Community Initiatives and strengthening our bond with the Trusts from our local professional clubs. I would also like to make the Trust more visible at local events and campaigns that match our values and ethos. This will go hand in hand with the responsibility of representing our members as the majority shareholder of Exeter City Football Club.

Nick Hawker For the past 3 years I have been Chair of the Trust, during which time I have sat on the Club Board. In that Club Board role, I have Chaired the Budget Options Group and have been part of the Governance Group, helping to deliver a financial plan through to 2022/23, and an updated Articles of Association and Governance Manual. I have also been the Trust representative at EFL meetings.

Recently the Trust has grown and improved in many areas, but I do believe we need to be a little more accessible to members on match-days.

Luke Jones I have worked for Exeter City Football Club from 2010 and have gained promotion to Bar Manager. Being on the Trust Board would enable me to keep focused on opportunities, improving The Brand of The Centre Spot/The Park, looking at the feasibility of moving to a more cafe/bar culture with students moving to Exeter from all over the world.

I ASK FOR YOUR VOTE :- I will make sure all future opportunities will be utilised.


MORE FUNDS FOR E.C.F.C

I ask that you do vote Trust Elections as a positive way you can guide ECFC.

Kayleigh-Jade West In the Communications group I contribute to the Trust’s communication strategy and strive to produce quality content. As a disabled supporter I work ensuring our content is accessible and that there aren’t barriers to accessing and contributing to the Trust.

Having studied law at university, being a photographer / videographer, and with extensive social media experience I meet many criteria the Trust is looking for in this election.

Working at Exeter University gives me links to a key demographic. If elected I would advocate for student and young people’s Trust memberships bridging the gap between Junior Grecian and adult memberships.

Alistair Yates I am seeking your vote for election to the BOS to support stability and development. I have been a Trustee in the past, managing the finances and membership development. A 1931er, my family are members of multiple Grecian groups. I supported many financial activities of the club and Trust. Away from Exeter I am a retired youth coach and occasional referee. I will be striving to increase the Trust brand and appeal to younger fans. I have the business competences to help develop the Trust, I wish to volunteer and stand to make sure there are active elections.
