The Trust Board is made up of supporters who feel they can best steward the Trust towards completing its objectives. They are all volunteers, members of the Trust and were democratically elected onto the board by the members of the Trust. They come from a wide variety of occupations and were chosen to give the trust diverse experience and knowledge.

Transparency and communication are vital to everything the Trust does. In keeping with this, we are working to bring you a profile of each Trust board member sharing their experience as a City fan and professionally, so you can get to know them better.

The Trust board members will always be happy to speak to any Trust members or City fans, so if you would like to speak to someone, email, and put the Trust board member’s name in the subject, and the email will be forwarded on to them, and they will get back to you within a working week.

Board Member: Mike Davis
‘The war was over (that’s the 2nd one by the way), and I was 6 years old. Dad took me to my first match at the Lane. Names from those days stay with me, Bert Rogers, Gerry Sheveling and more.

The Supporters Club was a significant organisation, I had a lapel badge they produced, I collected little hanging add-ons every season. With breaks for College, 3 years in North Wales and then starting a business, I’ve watched City ever since.

I spent 6 years as a Director, the first supporters’ representative. During that time, I turned the pitch at SGL from a sand pit into something which stayed green to the end of the season, re-established the connection with local schools and youth clubs and introduced Gold Bond’.

Board Member: Jem Pitt
‘I became a City fan at the age of 12, when my parents moved to Merrimans Hill. The lure of the floodlights from my bedroom window was irresistible. I’ve never really been a big football fan, but I always felt the WCFC was an integral part of Worcester community.

I founded the Supporters Trust in 2004, with the aim of creating a fully democratic fans owned football club, with a more stable financial position. 14 years later, the ambition is the same, but the need is much greater.

I once missed a penalty at St George’s Lane, voted the worst penalty ever at The Lane’.

Board Member: Ken Johnson
‘I became a City Fan because of my Father who was a huge WCFC fan in my growing years & was an original supporter club member, so I decided to get involved when Ritch Widdowson asked me to join the ST Board, previously I was a serving HM PRISON Ranking Prison Principal Officer for 25.5 years with Governor Grade in my last 3 years’.

Board Member: Luke Cox
I have lived in Worcester pretty much all of my life and I have always been aware of the presence City had in Worcester. I properly started watching City about 3 or 4 years ago when I came to realise the importance of supporting my local team. I was there for the Scunthorpe and Sheffield games, and had such a good time I have stuck round ever since, it’s not an easy life supporting Worcester City, but I’ve fallen head over heels for this authentic and imperfect level of football.

In May 2018 I finished my degree in Football Business & Marketing from UCFB Wembley, and have experience working in football through gaining experience with Wembley FC, the Sottish Professional Football League and Supporters Direct

I truly believe there can be a bright future for Worcester City at a much higher level of football fitting for the club’s size and history’.

Luke was elected onto the Supporters Direct Board of Directors in July 2018 and will serve on it until the end of 2018 when SD merges with the Football Supporters Federation.

Board Member: Gavin Warr
Gavin has a wealth of experience in property development and heads his own property development firm.

‘I first started watching The City with some school friends in the late 70’s. Most memorable at the time were the Plymouth and Newport FA Cup games. Still have my junior ticket. Admission was 60p! We also went to Swansea City away in the Welsh Cup. Chicken George was on our coach! Whilst at College I worked on the turnstiles for some pocket money. Since then I have been an irregular supporter until 3 or 4 years ago when I started attending most home games and several away each season. My family have a long history of connections with the Club. My Great Grandad was on the board, my Nan went to the Liverpool and Sheffield games, my Mum and Dad actually met at a City game and my late father in law was club secretary for many years’.

Board Member: Neil Cox
Neil has been an avid football fan since the early 70s and have been to around 100 professional grounds all over the UK

‘A few years ago I was becoming disillusioned with the Premier League and a friend asked me if I wanted to see City play Greenwich in the FA Cup. There was then a league game followed by Coventry away and I was hooked.

It’s been a roller coaster few years but I have really enjoyed going to City games with my local Worcester based friends.

I really believe that based on the catchment area that City have the potential to be a professional Football League Club.

I have a varied and diverse business background that includes, Petrol Filling Stations, Pub/Restaurants, Commercial Contract Cleaning, Mortgages & Finance and Residential Property Investment & Lettings, to name but a few’.
