There is a new face at Oxford United with Dan Buckley joining as Marketing and Supporter Liaison Officer.
Dan, 24, will provide the fans with a direct point of contact at the club, and he will be heavily involved with social media, OX4Life, fan engagement, the Community Trust and the WSL Women’s team.
Having studied a BA in Sports Marketing at Northampton University and gained experience at the MK Dons, Dan, who comes from Bicester, joins his local side and told us:
"As a local lad, it is a privilege to be back home and here at Oxford United. I am looking forward to working closely with the fans and continuing the great work done by those before me.
“I have studied under some of the leading fan engagement experts in the UK, and am excited to be part of what is a very special club. It may take some time to perfect the formula, but I believe we can achieve some very exciting things together over the coming months. It is very important to me that the fans feel they are being listened to, so please feel free to stop me for a chat if you see me around the club."
Managing Director Greig Box Turnbull said:
“This is a key role that is so important to our commitment to being fully connected with supporters and to communicate all areas of the club. We know there has been room for improvement in this area and having listened to fans feedback we are all right behind Dan in making this a success.
“Dan will be in direct contact with the fans every day and has already made a very good start.
“He knows he is going to be busy; we have a Family Away day at Charlton that he will be taking the lead on, the Women’s team are about to kick off a new season and we have some massive games coming up for the first team so he has had to hit the ground running. But he is young, bright and enthusiastic and I am sure will make a great impression here.”
