ARFC Board of Directors 2018
A lifelong Rovers fan, I was elected as the Trust rep to the board in 2013. I have been chairman since 2016 working tirelessly, with others, to keep ARFC continuing to operate as Coatbridge’s senior football club – at the heart of its community.
A founder member of the supporters’ trust, I am a shareholder, a season ticket holder and a financial contributor to the football club and to the squad fund.
One of the main assets of our club is our volunteer helpers and I recognise each one of their contributions in keeping the Rovers thriving.
I have been involved with Albion Rovers since 1992. At that time the board of directors intended to ground share with Airdrie and sell Cliftonhill Stadium.
I joined a group of supporters and shareholders who were opposed to this move. We were successful in blocking this by sponsoring a number of friendly shareholders as directors.
I joined the board of directors at this time, serving as a director for 3 years, my main remit being safety officer.
I continued to work with the club in helping to establish the Supporters Trust and acting as the Chairperson of the Trust between 2009 and 2017.
I returned to work as a director in June 2016, joining Ronnie Boyd, Ian Benton and Paul Reilly, who were board members at that time .
Currently my main remit as a Board of Director, is to lead the recently founded community trust, Rovers in the Community.
I have always advocated that Albion Rovers should remain in Coatbridge. As it is an integral part of our heritage and local community.
I look forward to working with the club in the future and I am fully committed to the future development of Albion Rovers FC, on the field of play and within the local community .
Mark Hunter, recently retired from 36 years in the energy sector. Moved to Coatbridge about seven years ago as a result of marriage to a local lass. Decided to go to a Rovers game out of curiosity, and developed a soft spot for the club. Joined the Supporters’ Trust, attended a number of meetings and wanted to do more for the club.
