Author David Millar  I  Wirral

Age  I  53

Current role I “Community Manager, Tranmere Rovers FC.”

How long have you worked for Tranmere in the Community  I  “29-years starting in October 1998.”

Why Tranmere in the Community  I  “Having worked previously as Community Officer at Chester FC, I was tasked with the job of starting ‘Football in the Community’ at Tranmere Rovers – in conjunction with PFA as the clubs first Community Officer. As I watched the team as a child (being my local club) it made perfect sense to take the role when invited.”

What does Tranmere in the Community do  I  “Tranmere in the Community aims to help increase and improve the health and wellbeing of the local population through a variety of activities based around the four core themes of:

  1. Sports participation
  2. Health
  3. Education
  4. Inclusion.”

Do any of the players (past and/ or present) get involved  I  “Yes, all present players attend visits throughout the Wirral on a regular basis. Past players also come back to the club to mix with supporters on match days”.

Who do you support  I  “As a lad, I followed Everton avidly – along with Tranmere and Chester on a part-time basis. I am no longer blinkered and will watch anyone to see a game.”

Best project I  “Definitely ‘Active Rovers’, which is aimed at increasing the health and fitness of both men and women over the age of 40. We also run a very worthwhile programme of activities for ‘looked after’ children – which is very rewarding.”

Funniest moment  I  “There have been a few, however probably not the right place to reveal them!”

Special skill  I  “Definitely none on the pitch anymore.”

Will TRFC gain promotion this year I  “I think so, however it is very difficult with only one team gaining automatic promotion. It will take a massive effort again this season.”
