Introducing the Officers of the ECFC Supporters' Trust



Trust Secretary

Phil attended his first Exeter City game in November 1976 and has been hooked ever since. 


Throughout the Trust era at ECFC, Phil has been a regular member of the post match clean up crew and took part in many of the Cat and Fiddle work parties. 


Returning to the city after a long period living behind enemy lines and travelling, Phil volunteered to help the trust and took up the post of trust secretary in 2018.

The trust secretary organises Trust Board Meetings, the AGM and Trust Board Elections and generally supports the Trust Chair and Trust Board as required.

Trust Finance Officer

Steve became the Trust’s Finance Officer in August 2015, a role which covers many areas such as the day-to-day management of the Trust’s financial affairs and liaising with the Trust’s Membership Secretary, Club employees and local and national suppliers.


The role also takes responsibility for the preparation of the Trust’s annual accounts and compliance with a number of statutory obligations such as the annual FCA return. As part of his role, he is also a member of the Finance and Governance Working Group and the Ownership and Membership Working Group.

It was the ownership model of the Trust and being able to play an active part in the decision making process that attracted him to the position and he believes that the stability of this has more than demonstrated itself over the unsettling times of 2020 and beyond.


On a personal level, he has worked in corporate financial services for over 20 years and been following City for even longer, having first been taken along by his father at an early age.



Trust Press and Media Manager

Alice has lived in North Devon all her life and attended Exeter University to read archaeology, later gaining a Masters degree in Environmental decision making.  She has worked for several organisations. including the North Devon District Hospital, South West Water and North Devon Rescue Archaeology Unit.     She now runs her own horticultural and home help business.

She first came to City on a Football in the Community hospitality day with her son’s football club.  It was May and it snowed during the morning training session. They both then came to St James’ Park to watch the match against Huddersfield that City had to win to stay in League One.  She was then hooked.

As soon as Alice became aware that the Club was supporter owned, she joined the Trust, as she likes the whole ethos.  Soon becoming keen to get more involved, she applied for the Trust’s Press and Media Manager position when it became available.  She is also secretary to the North Devon Grecians and becoming involved in these ways has helped her meet a lot of new people and has made attending matches on her own a pleasurable experience.



Trust Board Minute Taker

Pete stood on the half-way line in the Cowshed with his 8 year old son balanced on a stool alongside him. The son is now nearly 40 and supporting City from the other side of the world in Sydney.

Pete thought he’d better put to use some of the skills he’d learnt in his career as an English teacher so he now writes the minutes of the Trust Board meetings.
