Roger Barnes

My Name is Roger Barnes, I have supported Boro for sixty odd years, recalling my first game on my Dads shoulders under the old Canal side Stand when Blackpool F.C. were the visitors in a friendly game. They included in their team the immortal Stanley Mathews.

I am a professional Mechanical Engineer having served local Aerospace companies as Works Manager, and Group Quality Assurance Manager. I have also served Boro Football Club as Treasurer and Chairman of The Supporters Club, when the club kept both the reserve and youth Teams funded to the tune of approx £23,000 p.a. I have served Nuneaton Boro Supporters Trust both as Treasurer and Secretary and Board Member since Launch date 9 years ago. I have always fervently believed in one club one Supporters Group, and that has been an ambition of mine for a long time, now almost achieved. Although I have a disability and am past retiring age, I still work. I have my own Internet Company of which I am a director, and I also run an Antiques Business as Consultant to my partners business.
