Who are you?
I’m Alex Pollock, and I live in Swindon where I was born and bred.
What’s your day job?
I’ve worked for in digital marketing since 2007, predominantly in media strategy. I’m currently working for an agency helping global brands execute large-scale digital campaigns to help them recruit top talent.
How long have you been a Swindon fan?
I’ve followed Swindon for as long as I can remember, heading to games as a kid with my Dad & uncle.
Throughout my teens, I had a season ticket and was at the majority of home and away matches.
You’ll find me nowadays sat at the back of The Don Rogers Stand.
Why did you join the STFC trust board?
I was originally approached by the Trust in the summer of 2015 to assist the Board in their social media presence. I’ve always tried to use my professional experience in digital marketing, media and communications to the benefit of the Trust as well as the membership.
I formally joined the board in 2017, and became Vice Chair in 2021.
What’s your proudest moment as a Swindon fan?
Getting my shirt signed by Glenn Hoddle – a purely selfish memory.
Who has been your favourite ever Swindon player and Manager?
Favourite player: Super Sammy Parkin, without a doubt!
Favourite manager: for his character and passion, PDC.
Whats your overall vision for Swindon Town football club?
I’d love to see the club become an integral part of the local community – working more closely with schools, charities, community groups, the fans – and becoming a hub of activity!
Aside from a Saturday afternoon at 3pm, it’s been a long time since I saw a youngster sporting an STFC shirt…
