Candidates Statement– Mark Macdougall
My name is Mark Macdougall, I wish to stand for one of the vacancies on the Wrexham Supporters Trust board.
I have seen the Wrexham Supporters Trust have made some fantastic advances in the past few year and I would like to contribute to the Wrexham supporters trust and their progress. I am, as the Wrexham supporters trust are only interested in one thing and that is bringing the club back to where it should be! and that is in the football league and further, with the right people behind it!
I am 51 years old, married, with two daughters who are 20 and 18 and a step son of 33 who is also a member of the Wrexham supporters trust and supports Wrexham, my wife works as a teaching assistant at a local primary school. We have lived in Wrexham all our lives. I play pool for the Turf and have also played for Wales and managed the under 21’s pool team.
My background involves working in sales selling double glazing for several high-profile companies, which I have done for over 30 years. I now have my own businesses, which are A 1 Plastics, Windows and Doors Ltd and my second company is Wrexham Conservatories which both are home improvements companies.
I would bring a vast knowledge of sales and how to negotiate with people. and marketing, I am very proactive, I am confident and articulate, I have a lot of contacts in the business and sporting world. I have helped raise funds for a mini bus for my wife’s school and for the Wales junior pool team players to raise money for them to represent Wales overseas and the local Sunday league football teams.
If I am elected have several ideas to bring revenue to the club and help take the club forward. As I own my own business I will be able to give as much time as is needed in developing ideas and making the trust board the best and Wrexham Association Football Club the best they can be.
I have been a member of the Wrexham supporters trust from its start also I have been a Wrexham fan for 46 years home and away. My wife’s Grandfather even helped build the steps in the stadium in the early days! So, as you can see the club is very close not just to my heart but also my family. But more than anything as a Wrexham FC supporter I am passionate in my desire to help achieve the best possible for our town club. On this basis, I submit my candidacy for the role as trust board.
