The Supporters’ Club Committee is one of the initiatives designed to help bring Supporters’ Clubs closer to the Club.
Secretaries will attend meetings to discuss a host of topics that are important to Supporters’ Clubs and their members. The meetings will take place on a monthly basis and the Committee will provide support with planning Supporters’ Club events including the Supporters’ Club awards and matchday activities. The Committee will also work with the Club to review the affiliation benefits on a seasonal basis. Here we meet the Supporters' Club Committee members...
Bob Roberts - Conwy County
The Club has been active for about 12 years, it started as a group of supporters organising a coach to attend games from the Conwy and Llandudno area, it was then decided to form a club and we then affiliated with Everton to provide tickets and transport to all the home games and some away games
We now have 40 Season Ticket Holders and a membership of 84 members who obtain tickets for those who do not have Season tickets. The bus goes to every home game, starting at Llandudno and pickups to St Asaph. We have committee of 6, and when we do any fund raising the money goes to local charities and to help local children’s football teams.
Hana Roks - Han's Tours
Originally 'Jethro's', started in 1976. A group of mates began travelling to away's together which was started by my dad. Became affiliated in 2009 and take coaches to all away's and have events and meet ups at home games. Great group of mates who mainly met on the coaches, a great mix of people young and old!

With seeing each other every week we don't have regular meetings but organise a function just before Christmas to pay for the kids Blue Christmas Party and end of season function. The friendship and bond that has been created over the past 22 years has made us a very special Supporters' Club and most of all a Blue family.

ESCCNA have hosted a number of former player evenings with Joe Royle, John Bailey, the late Tony McNamara, Derek Temple along with ESCCNA Presidents Eamonn O'Keefe and John Sutherland having been in attendance.
