Stevenage Football Club is pleased to confirm the appointment of Disability Supporter Liaison Officer Alex Potter…
Alex will work with the Club to ensure best practice in the accessibility of our stadium, assistance to those supporters with disability requirements and to help promote inclusivity and equality.
As a fan for over ten years, Alex is passionate to assist relevant supporters visiting The Lamex Stadium by helping to provide a positive and accessible matchday experience.
“I first started to take notice of Stevenage FC when they were drawn against Newcastle in the FA Cup in 1998”, said Stevenage FC DSLO Alex Potter. “It brought such a buzz to the town like never before!”
“I have always felt that Stevenage is a lovely, family friendly Club that actively encourages families to come and watch. They have held many great open days at the stadium and training ground, and the Kids Takeover days have been amazing! My son was ‘Chairman for the Day’ one year, and then my daughter was ‘Manager for the Day’ another. The Supporters’ Association has also enabled them to be mascots too. Not to mention the Soccer Camps and training that both have attended over the years.”
“I remember when I first went to football in the 1970s, many supporters would say to me “You’re a girl and you like football?!” I am so glad times have changed since then and now have the pleasure of watching both my son and daughter play football. I think football is for everyone, which is why I am so passionate about this new role. I would love more people with disabilities to enjoy the highs and lows of this great game! It is a sport that brings people together regardless of who you are!”
“I really hope I can make a difference at Stevenage and make the football experience for our disabled supporters as good & enjoyable as possible”.
Alex will start her role this week and will be present for the Hartlepool United game next Saturday. Supporters wishing to contact Alex can do so by emailing email@example.com.
