Chair of Trustees
My son has been with Raiders for 5 years since joining the U7s and I've been managing his team for the last 4 years. It's great to be involved with Raiders as the ethos and support is great for the kids, parents and volunteers alike. My role is to work with and lead the Board of Trustees to deliver the strategic objectives of the football club charity.

My son joined Raiders at U7s and I’ve loved watching him develop as a footballer and be a part of such a supportive and encouraging environment. The enthusiasm and dedication of the volunteers who make this happen is great and so I’m delighted to have the opportunity to contribute to such a fantastic community club as the Treasurer for the charity.

Charlotte Spooner

Trustee & HR Advisor
Both of my sons have been enthusiastic members of Raiders since U7s, it is a fantastic community football club which gives children the chance to make new friends and build team spirit. I have volunteered many times with the annual tournament and also pitch side at their matches so when the opportunity to become a trustee and HR advisor came along, I jumped at it!

My son joined U10 last year and has developed into a proud and determined Raiders U11 player. His enthusiasm has inspired me to join the impressive Raiders volunteer community. As a trustee, my role is to exercise oversight and scrutiny, and help ensure that the charitable objects are carried out and that sustainable revenues continue to be generated.

It's great to be part of something that impacts so many people positively. Somehow, I've taken on responsibility for the U7s and the U18s. I've been trying to offload the responsibility for purchasing for some time now. Sorting out the kit for 1,000 players is a challenge. Anyone got a large garage?
