Ian Crawley – Chair
Born a few miles from White Hart Lane and first attending a Spurs match there in 1959, that will always be my spiritual home. I was a regular in the 60’s, carrying my wooden box to every game in the early years, to stand on at the front of the terracing in the enclosure. Season tickets for 20 years from 1986 and a lot of away travel, reinforced that commitment.
Having moved to Nailsworth in 2003, I discovered the little club on the hill, in walking distance from home. I was not previously aware FGR existed, even though I was often in The Jolly Foresters. A few matches then captured my interest.
A regular home and away FGR supporter now for over 10 years, confirms me as a ‘blow-in’, to the club, Nailsworth and the Stroud valleys. I am now a complete convert to the lower leagues, the honesty; the camaraderie with home and away fans; and the unique journey the Club is on, under Dale’s ownership and leadership. Long may it continue.
