Meet the Committee Members
Mark Owen Chairman/Welfare Officer
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. We are a community, we are The Yellow Army.

Hi, my name is Natasha, I am married to Greg who sponsors our U8s Team and have a son Max. I am 32 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.
