Wendy Noble, the Community Trust Operations Manager at Oldham Athletic, has always gone above and beyond for making youngsters feel part of the Oldham Athletic family.
Her main priority is to make sure youngsters go home having enjoyed their time at the club.
She liaises with the players who listen to her every word and organises their community visits, which the club usually excel in.
The club usually come in the top five of most player visits from a club each season, and that is something Wendy associates herself with.
Her main aim is to make sure that football is not just about the 90 minutes on the pitch, it’s about the family experience and how they enjoy their day.
Wendy takes great pride in her work and she has set up a Family and Community section in one of the stands which she runs on a match day.
This involves running a tuckshop, putting on several activities and making sure players who aren’t in the match day squad sit with the children during the game.
She is also in charge of the mascots, our bench buddy scheme, the ball boys and she was instrumental in our Junior Takeover initiative where young fans took on several different roles ranging from ground staff, to match announcer to Chief Executive.
There has been an increase in junior members, the mascot packages are fully sold out before the season has even kicked off, and her work in community helped us win the Family Excellence award last season.
