Dan Maclennan (Vice-Chair, Communications)

Hi, I’m Dan and a Carlisle fan since my first game in 1985!

From Fanzines to Phone-Ins and Forums to Podcasts, I’ve always been vocal about Carlisle United. Now I’ve decided to try and get involved with an organisation that should be at the very heart of the fanbase – The Trust.

My message to you all is simple – Join up to have YOUR voice heard!

Dave Noble (Membership)

I have been following the Blues since 1984 and have a season ticket with my son and daughter in the East Stand, where they enjoy using the excellent Family Zone. Pre-match, I can often be found on the CUOSC stand on the East Stand concourse if you want to come for a chat or to ask any CUOSC related questions. I want to see fans have a strong voice in relation to club issues and firmly believe this can be achieved through a thriving and active supporters club.

I am an Accountant by profession and currently work in the hospitality industry.
