Meet the Team

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.

Trustee

I was born and 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, particuarly individuals who are determined to come back from adversity and reach their goals.

Debbie Willis

Trustee

I have been supporting Kettering Town FC for over 50 years, I have been involved with the club as Mascot Co-Ordinator and have had lots of very memorable games, such as Fulham and Leeds in the FA Cup. Many of the youngsters who participated are now adult fans! I used to run the shop at Rockingham Road and I carried on with this role when we moved to Nene Park. I am now very excited to be coming into this new role as a Trustee for the Community Trust. I have seen the great work they have been doing and look forward to being able to help in any way I can.

Community Trust Project Manager

I love working 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.

Project Lead - Multi 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.
