Ian has been a passionate, vocal supporter of fan ownership since joining SU/MUST in 2004. Born in Blackpool but a Salfordian by choice. He grew up in Salford with Old Trafford as his back drop and attended his first game in 1973 - a reserve match which cost just 5 pence to get in.
He strongly believes that football clubs should benefit the community and fans rather than a corporate asset of distant owners who are only motivated by profit. He would like to see a day when football fans are valued for the contribution they make to the club in terms of passion and pride and not for how much money can be squeezed out of them.
The first thing he would like to see when MUST have achieved their aims is to get 'Football Club' back on the badge.
He is also an active member of IMUSA.
