Our Committee is a hard working group of volunteers, elected on a regular basis, charged with the efficient operation of the Supporters Club and known for pretty much running things on match-day. Meetings of the committee are open to our adult members who are welcome to attend and ask questions. All members received an email ahead of each meeting inviting them to attend.

Vice Chair and Volunteer Co-ordinator – Harry Bragginton
As Vice Chair, Harry will support the Chair by covering for her in an absence and by sharing in strategic thinking. As volunteers are the life blood of Coventry United, Harry also holds a key position in ensuring that our volunteers are supported and nurtured. We have a number of important volunteers who give up their time freely to support the club and we are extremely grateful to them. As the club increases in size the number of volunteers needed will increase so we will always be looking to engage new volunteers, matching them to suitable tasks according to their skills and the level of time they can commit. Not all volunteering has to happen on match days either as most of all we want to make volunteering for Coventry United an enjoyable experience. You'll also see Harry on match days as a member of the safety team at the Butts Park Arena.
