CITY MATTERS: Families and Young People Representative



Vote for your representative below before noon 7th September:

Adam Purdue

  •  Age 48 and a Season Ticket holder for most of the last 42 years.
  • My dad started taking me to Maine Road (main stand) in 1976. Moved to the Kippax at 14 and then (after University and living abroad) the North stand. A couple of seasons in the South Stand at the Etihad until I started taking my 5-year-old daughter about 9 years ago. Now in the Family Stand upper.
  • Interested in club plans to ensure new generations of match-day fans catch the City bug like I did, and my daughter has. Although we’re part of a global game, the local, lifelong fan is important.
  • I have attended fan forums of various kinds over the years, both at Maine Road and the Etihad. Until 2 years ago I worked as a Business Analyst for a Fortune 500 company: tight deadlines, attention to detail, embracing change was the nature of the job.


Andrew Savage

  • I am 47 years old but understand what matters to families and younger fans. 
  • I run a successful City Facebook group that is family friendly where I allow City fans to have a voice that is listened to.
  • I speak with City fans daily, know the issues they have, what they love, and what City do and don’t do. I also have experience with the media, so I know how to conduct myself and be respectful to all.
  • I am applying for this position to make a difference to City fans that want me to relay their thoughts and ideas to the club.
  • I want to make the difference and bridge the gap between the club and fans so if you want the same then please choose me. 


Martin Travers

  • Attended my first game before the age of 1 (3-1 home defeat to Leicester) and currently a Season Ticket holder with my 13 year old son in the family stand.
  • Have been a Season Ticket holder since the 1970s, go to all games home and away and have attended many City European away matches.
  • In regular contact with fellow supporters whose opinions I take on board, regularly defend Our City on Talksport radio.
  • So obsessed with the Blues I got married at the Etihad Stadium and have been right there through the good old bad old days.
  • I have watched City away at 81 of the 92 Clubs (Also numerous now Non-League clubs we have played at).
