|Dan Silver – Board Member
Overseas Membership Development
|Third generation Chelsea fan. My Grandpa first went in 1922.. My Dad in the early 50’s, I was still in a buggy for my first game & started going regularly in 1983.
The FA Cup in 97, our first premiership title & the champions league win are my all-time favourite moments, before that it was the full members cup win, my visit to Wembley!
Kerry Dixon was first Chelsea hero & I am a regular guest on the Chelsea FanCast.
|Dominic Rosso – Board Member
||Dominic Rosso attended his first game at the the age of 9. A 1-1 draw to Spurs was all that was needed for him to become hooked. Now a ST holder in Block 11. Dom attends the large majority of home, away and European games. Dom is the youngest member of the board, however, the Law student does not let this phase him. A former member of the Club’s Fans’ Forum – ensuring the supporters are strongly represented is Dom’s key focus. He has produced and contributed to the two largest Chelsea Fan YouTube channels, worked on the popular ‘fanzine’ magazine and is very much in touch with the problems that supporters face on a weekly basis.|
|Louisa Pawsey – Co-opted
||Louisa has been a Chelsea supporter since she was a teenager, not as regular match goer as she would like, but that is why she joined the CST to help those who don’t attend matches regularly to have a voice. She is also an historian with particular focus on WW2 and is keen to be involved in the say no to anti-semitism campaign. Louisa looks forward to working with the trust and club on these issues.

He holds two season-tickets in the West Lower and lists (obviously) being at Bolton 2005, Wembley Cup Final 2007, Munich 2012, Amsterdam 2013 and Baku 2019 as some of his greatest Chelsea memories.
He was one of the few also in Japan when we agonisingly and unfairly lost the 2012 Club World Cup Final and also attended friendlies in Indonesia and Thailand amongst many other countries.
