 I am very excited to become a member of the Everton Fans Forum and I’m eager to get started. It’s a privilege to have been voted for by fellow season ticket holders and I hope to do those who did vote proud. I’m 24 years old and have had a season ticket at Goodison Park for 18 years. I sit in the Lower Gwlady’s with my dad so going the match has a real family feel for me, something I feel is representative of Everton Football club. There’s nothing I’m more passionate about than Everton and I intend to give my time on the forum everything I have.
