I have been an avid Rovers fan since I first saw Tony Field and Sir Roger Jones create magic at either end of the field in 1971.
I have experienced all the highs and lows of half a century of following the club and since 1995 have travelled from Glasgow to games, having moved north of the border shortly after Rovers were crowned premier league champions.
Like most other people, I am dismayed by how the club has been run over the past decade and I just felt it was time for me to take an active involvement in giving something back by helping the Trust. My ‘day job’ is currently the chief executive of a housing association in central Scotland, and prior to that I worked in an advisory and lobbying capacity for the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations, working closely with the Scottish Parliament to push through some major housing reforms. In that role I became well versed in dealing with politicians, civil servants, and giving evidence in parliament.
