Name: Richard Taylor
Role: Committee Member
After watching the 2013 Lions Tour on TV, I attended a pre-season friendly against Sale Sharks, accompanying my eldest daughter Hannah. I recall us meeting Sam Warburton at the fan zone before the game, which was the first on the artificial pitch, walking on the pitch after the game and meeting some players. Straight away I was hooked and purchased two season tickets the following morning! Hannah holds over me that her first game was the last game at the Arms Park on grass. Cardiff Blues have already seen a great return on that £1 ticket she purchased just over the last four years.
I joined the Supporters Club three years ago and have attended away games and events organised by our dedicated Committee members, who perform an excellent job on our behalf on a voluntary basis. Two members of the Committee asked if I would consider putting my name forward at the AGM. As an additional Committee member hopefully I can help to share the burden and enhance on what is a very enjoyable social scene associated with our passionate support of Cardiff Blues.
Away from Cardiff Blues I have a degree in Economics, 25+ years' experience as a Local Government Officer, including previous experience on a Trade Union Committee, a sympathetic wife and two daughters. I also enjoy organising family holidays and trips across Europe. I have always been a keen sports fan including attending many major sporting events with my family.
