About | The Trust Board

The Tranmere Rovers Trust Board is made up of the following people:

Simon Crabtree (Trust Secretary)

Simon has been in love with Rovers since a cold November evening versus Wrexham in 1987. Years later, his love for the club and fans is just as strong as it was in 1987. From his seat in the Kop, he is surrounded by close family and friends and the wider support.

Simon is a joint Company Director of a well-established business that has been growing since 2005. His role means that Simon deal with a cross section of our community on a daily basis and in many ways this reflects the base support at Rovers. 

Simon is also the Chairman of New Ferry Rangers. He started the club with one team in 2006 but has since grown into one of the best clubs on the Wirral. In this role Simon is the main fundraiser at the Club, trying to keep costs for parents to a minimum. Simon also runs an annual football festival that attracts teams from all over the North West and north Wales. This runs over 2 days in June and has around 220 teams playing. It brings over 5000 people each day to Town Lane fields.

Over the last few years Simon has also been working on a £750K remodelling project, taking over the local youth club.

Jess Grundy

After her grandad bought her a season ticket for the Johnny King stand in 2005, Jess continues to watch Tranmere on a Saturday afternoon. Jess has been on the Trust board for six years and has been involved in a number of community initiatives. 

Jess has recently worked on Trust projects including the packing and delivering of food parcels during lockdown, the refurbishment of the Johnny King Stand and co-ordination of Christmas hampers in the local community. 

 Gareth Richards

Gareth was born and brought up in Birkenhead.  He attended his first Rovers game with his father in 1990 aged 10.  Having been a regular ever since and a season ticket holder since 1994 he also regularly follows the whites on the road.

Gareth manages a local branch of the UK's largest independently owned industrial procurement and supply company.

Gareth is also an FA qualified football coach and runs a local junior football team.
