At the Club's end of season awards, the Trust was pleased to present two awards:


The Chris Sliski Clubperson of the Year award went to Tony Rees. Tony has been one of the Club's volunteers for many years and can be seen in various places around the ground on a matchday, from the car park to collecting balls to vacuuming the board room. He's an unsung hero of the Club and the Trust board were delighted to give him this award. It was presented to him by Chris' wife Julie.


The Supporters' Player of the Season award went to Jack Turner, who picked up 45% of the votes taken at the home game against Welling, with Jack clearly catching the eye with many excellent performances across the season including some fantastic saves.


Congratulations to both of them, and to all of the award winners who received recognition - the rest of the awards can be found on the Club website here. Thanks to all of the volunteers who set up an excellent awards night and to all those who attended. What a great way to mark the end of a very successful season for the Club and the Trust.

We're pleased to announce that the Trust will continue to sponsor the Farnham Royal Cricket Club Colts team for the coming season.

The deal, valued at £400, sees the sponsorship continue from last season where a Trust banner was put up at the FRCC ground on Church Road as well as yellow and blue stumps for all of the Club matches.

FRCC have several season ticket holders as well as Trust members in their ranks and have an advert in the programme, plus the STFC commercial manager is also involved in FRCC, so we feel it's good to give a little something back to support and promote something a little bit different.

As part of the deal, the Trust will be the sponsor for the first team match against Falkland 2 on Saturday 22nd June from 12pm. We would like to encourage anyone associated with the Trust or STFC to come down for an afternoon of cricket and a mid-summer social event.


Don't forget we're also attending the FRCC Summer funday on Monday 27th May to promote STFC, so come along and join in the fun from 12pm.

Following the announcement that Steve Easterbrook has stepped down from his role as Slough Town FC chairman, the Slough Town Supporters Trust would like to place on record it’s sincere thanks to both Steve and his wife Sally for their hard work at the Club over the last decade.


After coming into the Club at a time of financial difficulty and instability, Steve steadied the ship and created a sustainable model of a Club designed to push forward and back up the non-league pyramid. Improvements on the pitch soon followed with the appointments of long-term management under Steve Bateman and then Neil Baker and Jon Underwood bringing the Club back up the leagues with two playoff wins. Meanwhile, the Club has grown away from the first team with the inclusion of the Slough Town Community teams and Women’s teams and established itself back within the community.


Off the pitch, Steve will no doubt also be remembered for his massive contribution to returning the Club to Slough by working with Slough Borough Council to create the fantastic Arbour Park project. The work did not stop following the Rebels Return, as Steve has almost constantly been in negotiations with the Council about the facility since – including creating the volunteer-run bar and catering arrangement for the whole facility. Even with the length of time it took to get the project to completion, Steve continued to push to bring the Club back to Slough and we will always be grateful to him for that - his contribution to our town by helping to create the community facility as well as returning the Club to the town cannot really be measured.


Credit must also go to Sally for her work with the Club, volunteering in the tea bar on matchdays as well as having to put up with all the work that Steve has put into the Club.


Steve has always been the kind of chairman to get stuck in, volunteering on matchdays doing whatever was needed to make sure that the matchday experience was going as well as possible, including running the outside bar during games so that the volunteers could watch the game. He was perhaps the least chairman-like chairman you could have imagined, doing the hard work and avoiding the spotlight. Never one to seek the attention or praise for what he did, you could always find Steve in amongst the fans on matchdays where he could quite easily be confused for any other fan.


We feel we can’t say it enough, but thank you Steve, Sally and the rest of the family, who have all contributed over the years to the success of our football club and turning it back into something to be proud of. Steve has always engaged well with the work of the Supporters Trust, as well as valuing the hard work of all the volunteers, and it has been a pleasure to work with him and we look forward to seeing him around Arbour Park in future seasons.


We wish John Porter the very best in his new position as acting chairman. We look forward to working with him and contributing to what will hopefully be the continued success of Slough Town FC.

We have recieved the following message from Mark Clements of E Sargeant & Son, following the recent Easter Egg collection held at Arbour Park for the Home Start Charity.


"I just wanted to write on behalf of Home-Start, Slough and E Sargeant & Son to thank you and all the supporters for their extremely kind donations of Easter eggs towards our appeal. We had a fantastic response to the appeal and over 500 eggs were donated ! This is an outstanding response and is so generous of all those involved. The Easter eggs were collected by Home-Start, Slough who in turn distributed them to vulnerable families within the local area. Without the generosity of kind hearted organisations such as yours and all of your supporters this would not have been possible. Please accept my sincere thanks and pass my thanks to your supporters."


Thank you to everyone who donated eggs, including the players and managers, to this collection. It's good to know that we could contribute to this great charity event and bring some joy to local families.

We're pleased to announce that, as part of our commitment to promote Slough Town FC in the community, we will be attending two events during the close season with our information stall. Last year we attended Britwell and Cippenham summer fairs as well as Slough Play Day.

First up this year on Bank Holiday Monday 27th May we will be at Farnham Royal Cricket Club's summer fun day from 12pm at the home of FRCC, Church Road, Farnham Royal.

Later in the summer, we'll be returning to Cippenham Carnival on Saturday 6th July from 12-4pm.

So if you're at a loose end bring the family down and support these events, and come along to see us. We'll be doing our best to pass on as much information as possible to those who want to learn more about STFC, including season ticket forms and Trust membership forms.

If you can spare a bit of time to help on our stall at these events to promote the Club, or if you could take our stall to another community event, please get in touch.

The vote for Supporters' Player of the Season will be organised as usual by the Trust, and will take place at this Saturday's home game against Welling. Any supporter can take part by visiting our gazebo on Saturday and taking a voting slip.

Make sure you're at the game to cast your vote! The award will be presented at the Club's end of season awards event, the details of which are yet to be confirmed.

At last night’s board meeting, the members of the Trust board agreed to make the following small donations:


- £100 to be donated from Trust funds towards the defibrillator fundraiser which sees STFC Juniors committee member Kelly running the Brighton Half Marathon. The fund has accumulated around £815 of its £1000 target to pay for a defibrillator to go into the facilities at Mercian Way, where the Juniors play their matches. The link to the fundraiser can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/287537598813510/?fundraiser_source=external_url

- Around £250 from the money left from Dave Carpenter’s estate to pay expenses for the STFC Community team to attend a tournament in Bournemouth. Dave was a big supporter of the Community team so we know this money is being used as he would have liked.

- A further £100 (£50 each) approximately from Dave Carpenter’s money to cover the petrol and any other expenses incurred by the two teams from Priory and Lynch Hill Schools while attending the National League Trust U11s Cup regional round in Sutton. Money from Dave’s fund also helped to make our local round at Arbour Park happen and also covered the cost of the STFC kits that the teams wore at Sutton.


The board also agreed in principle an initial spending plan for 2019-20 which will be approved in detail in the coming months prior to the new season starting. News will be passed on once the elements of this plan have been fully reviewed, approved and implemented.

We're pleased to be taking part in this year's Easter Egg collection for Home Start Slough, organised by E Sargeant & Son funeral directors.

The collection was done last year and returns in the run up to Easter 2019 to provide some cheer to the families supported by Home Start Slough. To find out more about Home Start Slough, visit their website at http://hsslough.co.uk/

Here's where we need your help. If you're out shopping over the next few weeks, pick up an extra Easter Egg and bring it along to one of the home games against St Albans or Welling and leave it at the Trust gazebo by turnstile 4. We can then pass them on to E Sargeant & Son and Home Start.

We hope that the Slough fans will get behind this idea and help to bring some joy to local families this Easter.
