Town’s long serving Merchandise Messiah Dave Hicks will be relinquishing his role as club shop proprietor after over thirty years’ service with Town and, previously, Enfield FC.
Dave said “It’s with a heavy heart that I have decided that, primarily due to the pressure of other commitments, I will be moving away from the running of the club shop. It’s been great keeping supporters up to speed with all our latest souvenirs and other products for so long, and I’ll still of course be around the place to keep up the friendships that have been developed over the decades. Thanks one and all for your loyal and devoted custom!”
Chairman Paul Reed said “on behalf of everyone at the club I’d like to thank Dave for all the countless hours of hard work he’s put in, literally from day one at Brimsdown in 2001. He will be an incredibly hard act to follow. Many, many thanks Dave!”
Not least as Dave’s helpers Pat and Sheila are also standing down, the club are seeking expressions of interest in running the shop. If you can help, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and a brief note on what you could bring to the role and how you would approach it.
The broad range of duties includes:
* stock management;
* matchday shop sales;
* liaison with supporters on demand for, and design of specific products* supplier liaison;
* handling online orders; and
* financial management.
A flexible and personable approach is required, on matchdays in particular when the shop is always very busy and requests can be very varied! This is a pivotal voluntary role within the club, and the revenue generated from sales is crucial in the battle to balance the books each year. Dave will be available to help with successor arrangements.
