Fans Directors

Nigel Serafini

Thomas Angus

I first recall visiting Brockville in the mid 1970’s shortly after my family’s move to Falkirk from Glasgow. Those weren’t great times for the club! But by the early 1980’s I was a regular, both home and away, interrupted by a spell 1995-2004 when I lived in Germany and England. A renewed season ticket, organised by my Bairns chums, awaited my return! Highlights have to be our Premier years, three Scottish Cup Finals and Vaduz.

I am a Chartered Accountant by profession, a corporate banker by career, and, through my own advisory firm, have spent the last 15 years involved with a wide variety of businesses. I was honoured to accept FSS’ nomination to the board of Falkirk FC in October 2023, and what a season it has been. Working with the other directors, and our wide variety of stakeholders, I aim to bring that financial and corporate experience to our activities, with a particular responsibility to ensure that the views of the supporters are clearly heard at board level.

FSS Committee

Stuart Graudus

Chairman

I have been watching Falkirk since mid 1960s and have some great memories particularly at Brockville on a big game when the place was rocking. The Crunchie / Stainrod era was probably my favourite time and I am sure we can return to that type of football in the not too distant future. The signs are good.

My home has been the Falkirk area all of my life. I am an engineer by background, recently retired in 2021 after a career in the oil & chemical industries and we have two grown up children. The last few years have been challenging for all Falkirk Bairns but after joining the FSS Committee in March 2023 it has been my privilege to get to know more FSS members and the people who work at the club, we all want the same thing. I am looking forward to the rest of 2024 and beyond.

Alan Macfarlane

Vice Chairman

I originally lived in Paisley and moved to Falkirk in 1976. I followed football at Paisley and visited various other stadiums including Edinburgh where I worked as an accountant and continued watching football at various stadiums until my 2 children arrived. It was not until the mid eighties when I started to support Falkirk on a regular basis with my 2 children. I have been a season ticket holder since the early nineties and travel to many of the away games. I also own a small number of shares in the club.  In 2016 I became a Supporters’ Club representative on a group that meet regularly and occasionally with then board.  It was from this group that FSS was created in 2020 as an all-inclusive fans group. I served as joint chair and then chair of the group until the 2022 AGM. I am currently the vice chair. 

Anna O’Donnell

Treasurer

Anna has been a member of the Committee for three years. She has been a Falkirk supporter for over 15 years and has a keen interest in supporter engagement and experience. In her professional life, she is a solicitor based in Glasgow. Her previous experience includes work with the Scottish FA’s Youth Congress where she led on projects related to supporter engagement with the women’s national team and the supply of free period products at Hampden Park. 

John Fleming

Secretary

John was brought up and still lives in the Braes area of Falkirk with his wife, son, daughter and westie, Bonnie. All his family are Falkirk supporters. John  worked at BP/Ineos since he was 16 and is now retired, and he has been a season ticket holder for an unspecified number of decades! John stood for many a year in the South Enclosure at Brockville and attended games home and away regularly over the years. Having been to 3 major cup finals and endured all the various highs and lows during that time, John hopes that by participating in the FSS, he can help in some way making the good times supporting Falkirk outnumber the less enjoyable times.

Jim Millar

Jim started heading to games with his Dad and two younger brothers in the first season at The Falkirk Stadium and has been a season ticket holder ever since – fond memories of the early days up the back of the gazebo! These days it will be the KM7 Stand at home and trips with Elliots away that you are most likely to see him.

A recent graduate in Politics and Social Policy, and currently working in Local Government, Jim has taken up a role within the Committee helping with communications and engagement. 

Holding a real belief that the fans are the single most important part of a football club, and with the Falkirk Supporters Society offering a vehicle for our voices to be heard, he wants to help ensure they are at the forefront of shaping the club.

Ryan Didcock

I am a lifelong supporter, attending matches for over 20 years and a season ticket holder for more than 10 years, attending games with my Falkirk supporting wife. I was brought up in Grangemouth, now living in Redding. I have an academic background in business management and I’m currently studying towards a degree in Accounting and Finance. I have worked in both the public and private sectors, mostly in administrative roles and have written articles for charities including Epilepsy Scotland, Epilepsy Action and The Royal Osteoporosis Society. I have also previously volunteered for Falkirk FC in various roles such as supporter services and in the finance department. I strongly believe in the concept of fan ownership and that the fans are the most important asset any club has and that the FSS offers the best opportunity for our fans to help shape the future of the club. 

Charlene Honey

I started going to Falkirk games at Brockville when I was 11 years old and a cheerleader. One of the Bairns Babes, I loved going along on a Saturday and dancing on the pitch, cheering the team on and being part of the crowd. I now attend games with my other half and son and we have recently had another Junior Bairn to add to our family and no doubt to our future fans. I’ve enjoyed getting involved with FSS and I’m keen to support the committee on future planning to keep building up the community of fan owners who are making a positive impact on our club. 

Douglas Peters

Having been brought up in the West of Scotland, I moved to Falkirk in 2006 and began supporting the Bairns then. I am a season ticket holder and attend most home matches. I joined the FSS after supporting Bairn for Life for a number of years until its sad demise. I joined the committee in 2023 and write the FSS article in the match programme.

Scott Steel

Scott has been dedicated Bairns supporter from 1969, his first game was Falkirk 7 QoS 5 at Brockville. He was one of the founding members of the Elliots Supporters Club. A season ticket holder and shareholder for many years. Also a member of local band Bladdered who recorded the 2009 Cup Final song ‘ Going For Glory’.  Background in petrochemicals and trade unions.

 

Scott helps with FSS events and makes connections within the fanbase.

Kevin Beattie

My current role which I thoroughly enjoy doing is to represent the club as the SUPPORTERS LIAISON OFFICER. I’ve been a fan since 1977 and never looked back and been fortunate to have been involved in multiple positions over the years. These roles have included Coaching our Community teams over a decade, Scouting for the academy, Director for a short period of time and now the SSL role that I have been doing now for the last couple of years.  I can assure you that there is never a dull moment, however the highlight this season has been helping the Ultras with their successful project this season. Onwards and upwards towards the Premier League.

Ian Park

I have supported Falkirk since 1971 and stood as a boy in the South Enclosure at Brockville before graduating to the Railway End .i  worked in the IT industry for 30 years and used these skills volunteering to help the Club recently complete their digital transformation project. My role on the FSS Committee is focused on marketing  , promoting membership across the UK and further afield internationally.
