Steve Evans - Secretary


Steve, a keen Liverpool supporter, was born and lives on Wirral, Merseyside. He joined the Royal Electrical Mechanical Engineers (REME) at the age 16 and after a successful military career, worked for Nestle until illness and disability forced early retirement.


He then became a radio presenter and can currently be heard regularly on local hospital radio on Wirral; he is also a sports summariser and newspaper reviewer for a commercial radio station in Liverpool. 


Steve was a Games Maker and Ambassador at the London Paralympics in 2012 and is currently a Public Governor of the Wirral University Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.


Steve recognises the benefits of following football and the need for a greater emphasis to be channelled into encouraging disabled people to attend sporting events.


Steve is also a supporter of LPF’s sister organisation, CAFE (the Centre for Access to Football in Europe), and he remains an active committee member with LDSA. 






Jo McNicol


Joanna brings with her a wealth of experience and has actively worked and campaigned for greater accessibility within the travel industry for numerous years. 


A lifelong supporter of Tottenham Hotspur, Joanna has followed Spurs across the UK and Europe, building friendships and contacts with both the club and fans alike.  She is also a keen traveller and attends other sports matches worldwide.


Joanna intuitively understands the needs of others and uses her excellent communication skills to better improve the experience for all. Her aim is to close the gap of what is accessible and what currently is not.
