Rob Jeffery

rob-jeffreyWho are you ?

Rob Jeffery, member number 1559.

 

Where do you live ?

Cardiff

 

What do you do for a living ?

I am retired but I previously worked for the Council in Cardiff

 

Why did you join the Trust ?

I joined in February 2015. I felt that the divide between the Club and its support was getting too wide for comfort and wanted to be part of the organisation best placed to address the problem.

 

Why would you encourage fans to join the Trust ?

Representing the views of fans is an ongoing process. The fact that we are back in blue does not mean that we can sit back and relax. A strong Trust membership is essential in order that future challenges and uncertainties can be met.

 

Why did you seek election to the Trust Board ?

I felt that being a passive season ticket holder and Trust member was not enough. I felt that I had skills and empirical knowledge that could serve the Trust in representing the membership.

 

What is your aim for the Trust over the next 12 months ?

To help the development of an ongoing consultation and communication process with the club at a strategic level.

 

How long have you supported City ?

My first game was when my dad took me to the opening game of the 1959-60 season – a 3-2 win over Liverpool.

 

What was your favourite City match ?

Lots of great memories such as Real Madrid but the final whistle of the 2008 FA Cup Semi Final v Barnsley and the realisation that we were actually going to appear in an FA Cup Final in my lifetime  was a special moment.

 

Who is your favourite City player ?

As a lad my favourite player was Greg Farrell. I still think that his performance in the 5-3 win over Middlesbrough in 1966 to avoid relegation is unmatched by any City player since. However, in recent years Peter Whittingham has justifiably made a place for himself in the annals of Cardiff City.
