Name: Howell Williams
Current role: Elected Trust Board Member to 31 July 2023
Why did you join the Trust Board: I felt that I wanted to help put something back into the club that I have followed for 57 years, and where better than with the Supporters’ Trust.
What attributes/skills are you able to bring to the Board: I am not sure at the moment but certainly have the experience of sitting on sports committees, but always ready to put myself forward as an organiser. I have always tended to be precise in the way whatever events etc are organised and keeping people informed of the important points.
How do you feel the Trust can further develop its representation of members and the wider fan base: Not really sure but will consider that question, I am very much aware what the demands and expectations of our supporters are and it is important to improve the things that matter to them, the supporters.
Trust Board Elections Nomination Statement July 2021: I was born in Three Crosses nearly 7 decades ago, I am married to Leonor (Filipino) for 40 yrs we 3 children and 5 grandchildren. I promise that I only moved to Cardiff with work honestly.
I have been a JACK since my first game in 1964. I am an East Stand season Ticket Holder. I am Sight Impaired 5 yrs ago but rarely miss a home game and really enjoy the in house commentary and the atmosphere. My sporting and committee experience is as follows:
1970 –Boys Clubs of Wales – Swansea District Secretary under the leadership of Clive ‘The Book’ Thomas and Chairman Ivor Pursey (Swans President)
1982 – Osterley Rugby & Squash Club (West London) – Club Steward
1986 – West Middlesex Golf Club Junior Section Secretary
1990 -West Middlesex F.C. Juniors – Junior Section Secretary
1992 – Yeading F.C. Junior Section Secretary
1997 – Fairwood Park Golf Club – Steward
2003 – Highwayman Blues – Secretary Pub Sunday League Team.
The majority of my employment life has been in the Licensed Trade managing or Stewarding. But my last venture was leasing a pub in Bridgend, where I built a substantial Swans fan base, where in fact I organised a Trust Q&A evening with Phil Sumbler and the infamous Alan Tate.
I am nominating myself because I would like to give something back to MY CLUB who have given some great entertainment
