Executive Committee Members ( 2019/20 Season )
Bristol Rovers Supporters Club Chairman
Vice Chair & Match Day Organiser
Secretary & Social Media
David joined our committee in our relegation to the Conference season and stepped up to assume the role of Secretary in 2017. He is also responsible for all our website content as well as most of our Social Media output. David explains, “It’s a very fine line when deciding what to put on our website. It is very easy to copy what is on the Football club’s website and some of their items should appear on our website but no one logs onto our website to read stories they have already read. It is good to have things that are specifically Supporters Club related such as memberships, away travel and the 50/50 draw as well news from the Academy, Development Squad, and the newly formed Women’s team that we sponsor to keep our site fresh”.
He first watched Rovers back in March 1969 (England were World Champions at the time). They lost 1-0 at home to Walsall with Bobby Jones missing a penalty and David lists his favourite away ground as Fulham’s Craven Cottage. His favourite Rovers player is still Harold Jarman and says his favourite Rovers goal is the “next one”.
On a match day, he can be found at the away turnstiles selling programmes and says that his favourite away fans are northern ones; they are “much nicer than their southern counterparts”. He attends games with his wife Angela who is a Supporters Club 50/50 seller.
Professionally, David is employed by Asda’s Filton store as their Community Champions. David owns, publishes and edits the Horfield and Lockleaze Voice newspaper and also manages North Bristol Foodbank’s outlet in Lockleaze.
