Mac McLeman RIP - 16 February

Carterton were saddened to learn that club stalwart Mac McLeman had passed away this week.

Mac first joined the club in 1989, and became a hard working committee member. He went on to manage boys teams at the club and eventually moved onwards into men’s football having tremendous success with running the Carterton Town A side in the Witney and District Men’s League picking up many trophies with his excellent side.

Mac also ran the clubs discos which brought a great deal of funds into the club. He also organised many trips to the races with Gary Brown which continue to this day.

Since taking over from Tom Amer on January 1st 2018, and now the dust has settled a bit here at Carterton FC, I thought it would be appropriate to give a small introduction about myself and how being in this position has come about.

I joined Carterton around April last year with Rob Broadbank as part of the 1st team re-formation. It was agreed that we would be self-sufficient and provide our own funding and admin duties. We joined from Highworth Town where we had been for 5 years. Football is my passion and that has grown even further with my time at Carterton. Relationships at the club have grown and developed quickly with all the people involved.

The Club has seen turbulent times over the past few years but Tom and his team have turned that around to enable it to enter a new phase that of growth and development within and with the local community. I was approached and asked if I would be prepared to take on this responsibility in November last year. After a lot of thought and consideration I decided that I would be able to offer the Club some direction. I do bring with me 30 years of experience of being in senior management positions within a large company, which include managing very large budgets, company strategies and a significant workforce.

Of course the biggest factor is the passion of the people at the Club and their desire for success within every part of it. Within the short space of time as The Chairman we have written a full constitution and management system, developed a manager’s handbook for clarity throughout, structured the new committee and are working on getting FA Charter Standard status back. The pathway will be progressive and not overnight but bridge building with the local community and council is high on the agenda. The objective we have is:

To provide the fullest opportunity for anyone wishing to play football in and around Carterton to participate in association football, and to provide a safe and enjoyable learning environment to maximise opportunity and potential.  The Club shall promote social and community activities in furtherance of this object.

Chairman Carterton FC
