AMBASSADORS for the 1854

The Ambassadors’ role is to promote within their respective cohort eras engagement of past players and supporters both with the Club and with each other through the social and business networking initiatives being taken forward by the Club and by the 1854 Committee. While engagement is the primary objective it is also hoped that a by-product of re-awakened affinity will be an increase in funding support through Patronage and Associate subscriptions.
