Arbroath Football Club Ambassadors
We are a proud small community Football Club with our past cemented in the football history books forever. Yet we are always looking forward and to the future.
As a club we are very fortunate to have support not only on the terraces week after week but also individuals and companies who are known throughout the world.
It is with this vision that we proudly announce the launch of “Arbroath Football Club Ambassadors.”
These Ambassadors will support the Football Club and Board in several ways. Not only will we grow at home in Scotland but we will journey across the world both in social and commercial avenues.
We are delighted to announce our very first two Arbroath Football Club Ambassadors who have been invited and accepted this new role.
Jonny O’Mara is 22 years of age and currently playing on the ATP World Tennis Circuit and is currently ranked 158th in the world for Doubles. This weekend he was part of the GB University Team which beat the 5-time Champions, USA, in the final for the very first time.
This summer he was given a wildcard for arguably the biggest tennis grand slam in the world and graced the hallowed turf of Wimbledon reaching the second round.
Jonny grew up in Arbroath attending Arbroath High School and follows the Lichties, often representing by wearing his Arbroath top.

Ewen Murray is a retired Scottish professional golfer who played on the European Tour.
He is now better known as a golf commentator having recently celebrated over 25 years of golf coverage on Sky Sports. He turned pro in 1971 and won both the 1980 Zambia Open and the 1984 Nigerian Open.
Ewen’s first commentary role came in 1990 at the Desert Classic in Dubai. He then commentated on the 1991and 1993 Ryder Cups before taking on commentary full time when he joined Sky Sports ahead of the 1995 Ryder Cup at Oak Hill Country Club in New York.
Ewen has enjoyed several online Twitter wagers and banter with fellow commentator and Clyde fan Dougie Donnelly when the teams played one another last season.
Ewen’s father hailed from Arbroath and supported the Lichties and his father’s brother, Frank was a Director at Gayfield.

Their roles will commence with immediate effect and we welcome our “Ambassadors” on board and look forward to working closely with them for the best interests of Arbroath Football Club.
Appointing club ambassadors is viewed as a key part of mapping the club’s future – using the appointed Arbroath FC Club Ambassadors standing and reputation in the local, national and international areas to engage and help the Club and community.
Ambassadors get involved in a variety of ways, representing the Club at various events, taking part in fundraising events, supporting our campaigns or even something simple like tweeting a message for us, or providing a quote of support and a photo for us to use.
Arbroath Football Club is proud to have fans from far and wide, and we are excited to announce the appointment of Jonny and Ewen as Club Ambassadors for the 2017/18 season and beyond.
C’mon the Lichties!
