MEET THE TEAM

Trustees

Gary Graham

Chairperson

Having been a strong supporter of the club for many years, offering practical support where I can, I now sit as a Director on the board.  When there was talk of establishing charitable status with the community arm of the club, I was very keen to become further involved.  As chair of Kettering Town FC Community Trust, I'm able to use my business expertise to support the growth and development of the Trust.  I see the value in the projects we've delivered to date and I look forward to working more closely with the local community in expanding our projects further, in line with our aims and objectives.  

Jason Thurland

Treasurer

My family and I have lived in Kettering all our lives and therefore I am very proud and honoured to be a Trustee for Kettering Town FC Community Trust.  The Trusts objectives are close to my heart with myself having children with special needs and physical health problems; and family members with mental health problems that struggle with their well-being.  I look forward in supporting the Trust, delivering projects with the local Kettering community.

Luke Graham

Secretary

I was born & bred in Kettering and have the connection and desire to help meet the needs of my local community.   As a Trustee of Kettering Town FC Community Trust, I feel honoured to have the opportunity to influence projects that will benefit locally.  My role in education, has given me a real passion to help young people with mental health difficulties, while getting a big personal reward by seeing people achieve something, particularly individuals who are determined to come back from adversity and reach their goals.

I have nearly 25 years experience of working in the community, coordinating and delivering predominantly youth projects in the public sector. I have a desire to help people from our local area and really enjoy seeing people happy, engaging in activities and initiatives that we provide.  

I look forward to promoting and developing the Trust further, as we strive to meet the needs of our local community and to make a positive impact on people’s lives.

David Dent

Project Lead - Muliti-Disability

I really enjoy working with children in general and have a particular passion for working with individuals with multi-disabilities.  To see children with disabilities engaged and having fun, gives me great satisfaction.  I believe as a Trust it’s important that we try to offer activities and initiatives to all.  To ensure I fine tune my skills in this area, I have attended and gained my FA Disability Coaching qualification.  I look forward to continuing to help at the Trust in this capacity

Joshua French

Head of the Community Youth Teams

I love working as a volunteer for the Trust.  I’ve been involved with the community youth teams for many years now, being made Project Lead in the summer of 2020. I have gained good experience in the community and in schools, carrying out fun, activity based multi-sports projects. I really enjoy watching children have a good time, in an inclusive, happy environment and seeing that smile on their face, as they become part of something. Our community youth sides continue to grow and this is something we’ll continue to strive for, to offer as many children in the community as we can, the possibility to enjoy a positive experience under our Trust banner.
