Meet the Committee Members
I’m Mark Owen, I work for Bargain Booze Warehouse and am married to Emma and have five children. I created Crewe Town Football Club because I wanted to give every child in the local area the opportunity and chance to play football. Regardless of age, gender or ability, they will always be welcome and treated the same as everyone else. It is my intention that the Club will always be affordable to everyone to able to play the beautiful game. It was my dream to create a place where parents can get involved and become Coaches or Managers, be involved in their child’s football and make special memories for both. As a Club we want to have a family environment, where there is no pressure with happy faces and everyone helping each other. This year we have grown by another three teams as Crewe Allstars have joined us. This makes us a stronger force in Local Grassroots football. We are a community, we are The Yellow Army.
I’m Mark Vodrey, married to Anne-Marie with two children. I started my journey with Crewe Town FC in May 2018 by coaching the Mini Kickers, and have since moved on to Managing the U10’s. As part of my duties as Vice Chairman I have taken on the Social Media and sponsorship aspects of our Club including the introduction of our new Club Website/Facebook/Instagram/Twitter and YouTube accounts. I am honoured to be a part of something exciting and rewarding, to see local children enjoying football, it is my vision that our Club will always be family orientated, affordable and open to everyone. With the team this Club has I know we will go from strength to strength and I look forward to seeing the new generation of footballers progressing through our Club, The Yellow Army!
Hi, I am Emma MacDonald and I am the New Welfare Officer for Crewe Town FC. I was recently the same at Crewe Athletic Juniors.
Hi, My name is Anne Marie Vodrey and I currently deal with all Club Accounts and I am the U8’s Joint Manager. I am Married to Mark Vodrey and have two children Jake and Ellie-mae. Jake currently plays for our U10’s which is also managed by my husband Mark and My brother Christopher. My journey with this Club started at Good Time Charlies when along with Natasha, Community Officer I was approached by Mark Owen and asked if I would like to take Jake and Ellie-mae to a training session at the Georges. Natasha and myself started helping out on a Friday taking Subs and doing the Register etc, soon I was asked to be a part of the Committee (on the condition Natasha was) which I accepted. This Club has grown so strong since its creation and I am very proud to be a part of it, its a family feeling Club and having my husband, son and best friend as a part of it makes it very special, My life has changed for the better and to see the children enjoying Football and having fun is fantastic, Grassroots football at its best, long live The Yellow Army!
My name is Gary Hancock and I am married with 2 children, Why did I choose Crewe Town FC, simple really, everyone at the Club is friendly, they have helped me settle in as a Coach and offered advice when needed. After coaching with Mark Vodrey with the U10s I felt I wanted to input more into the Club and after chatting with both Marks accepted the offer to join the Committee. It feels like one big happy family and I know in the future there is bigger and better things to come from Crewe town FC, The Yellow Army!
Hi, my name is Natasha, I am married to Greg who sponsors our U9’s Team and have a son Max with another addition to the family arriving in June! I am 33 and my day job is a social worker at Leighton Hospital. Whilst at Good Time Charlies I was approached by Mark Owen. We took Max to the first session and he loved it. As Annie and myself got to know Mark and his Coaches, it was soon obvious these boys needed help and direction. That’s where we both stepped in and offered to help on a Friday night with Subs and Register etc, shortly after an offer to join the Committee was offered, both Annie and myself said, only if she does too!! From there we have helped Crewe Town FC to grow and I am so proud to have been a part of this Grassroots Football Club since nearly day one and I am excited to see where we go in the future. This Club is so special because it is all about fun. If matches get won that’s a bonus, but by joining Crewe Town FC you join a family, Onwards and upwards for the Yellow Army.
Hi, I am Nathan Hughes and I am the Joint U8’s Manager, I am also Crewe Town FC’s Head of Recruitment. It has always been my vision that children should be able to enjoy playing football without the pressures of having to be the best, football is a game that should be enjoyed, and we at Crewe Town FC want to give all ages, abilities, race and gender the opportunity to do that, to “play the beautiful game.”
My name is Emma Owen and I am married to Mark Owen, the Club chairman. We have four children, Olivia, Charlie, Izzie and Amber. Olivia is studying Sport at Cheshire College in Crewe. Charlie and Izzie both play for the U11’s and U10’s respectively, and they both love and enjoy playing football, my youngest has joined the Crewe Town Tots and will am sure progress just like my other two. I am the Manager of Shoezone in Crewe. I wanted to become a part of the Club as it goes from strength to strength and because of the joy it gives to many young people and to my family to, and I want to help that carry on not just with my own girls but other familes too. My Job is to keep this Club sustainable and to do that, I find appropriate grants and funding opportunities available to help us continue the good work everyone at the Club does.
Hi, my name is John Edge, I am 44 and I am a Project Manager for Network Rail. I’m married to Deborah (who also works for Network Rail). Between us we have seven children and two of my step children Bayley and Eadie play for the U10’s and U8’s repectively.
My journey into the Club started, like many, with cold Friday nights taking Bayley to training (and later Eadie) and equally to matches on a Sunday. I was very happy to accept alongside Jeff a position on the Committee in the role of Team Liason Officer to hopefully play a part in helping the Club and most importantly the kids develop and grow while they learn the game.
