The time has come for us to announce the details of this year's Supporters Sponsored Walk!


Some people may have noticed that Active Slough recently announced the return of the Slough Half Marathon after an 18 year break. Following a suggestion from one of our supporters, we will be teaming up with Active Slough to bring you the Slough Half Marathon Sponsored Walk.


Taking place on Saturday 28th April prior to the final home game of the regular season, the walk will start in Salt Hill Park before following the new Half Marathon route through Slough, Langley, Upton, Chalvey, Chippenham, Burnham, Britwell and finally back through Slough to finish at Arbour Park with a distance of around 13.5 miles. The route is pretty unique compared to previous walks as it's contained entirely within the boundaries of Slough.


We will be offering the option of either the full walk starting at 8.45am from Salt Hill Park or a shorter version of around 6miles. Those doing the short version will join the long walk group at the junction of Twinches Lane and Bath Road (by the DFS store) meeting at around 10.30am.


The aim of working with Active Slough is to give mutual promotional benefit to both the walk and the Half Marathon, which is being held in the town on 14th October - more details on how to sign up or volunteer for the event including the basic route can be found on the Slough Council website (click here).


The chosen charity for this year's walk is Berkshire Vision who are a local charity who support visually impaired people across the county. Based in Reading, they help those who are dealing with sight loss and have established themselves over the last 100 years with clubs, events, home visits, family support and other activities. You can find out more about Berkshire Vision by visiting their website (click here). The money will be going towards their sports programmes which encourage those visually impaired people who may not get much exercise to get out and try something new and active, which fits in really well with the Slough Half Marathon theme of getting the town more active.


Last year the walk raised a huge £4000 which was split between the Trust and the dementia-friendly Butterfly Lounge at Wexham Park Hospital. You can sign up for this year's walk on a matchday by visiting the Trust tables by the turnstiles, Sponsor forms will be available from the Banbury home match onwards. Remember that more walkers will mean more sponsorship so please sign up and encourage as many people to join in!

The Trust has made arrangements for a free coach to travel to the funeral of 'Super Kev' on Friday 9th February. The coach will leave Arbour Park at 11am ahead of the service at 12pm in Yeading, and return after, where the wake begins at 3.30pm.

We're pleased to be able to offer this service to those who wish to attend the funeral, however it would be preferred if those who are interested could book in advance at the home match on Tuesday or by getting in touch with Mike Lightfoot through the details on our Contacts page.

Only one coach will run so if demand on the day is greater than expected those who book in advance will be given priority.

The full details of the day can be found on the Club website: http://www.sloughtownfc.net/article/1397/A-message-from-Kevin-McGoldrick's-family

All those associated with Slough Town Supporters Trust are devastated to hear the news of the passing of club physio Kevin "Super Kev" McGoldrick.

The word legend can thrown around too easily sometimes, but he has truly earned his status as a legend of Slough Town Football Club.


Kev touched the lives of so many players, managers and fans over the years with both his physio skills and his caring attitude that made him a very popular man. Treating players outside of normal football times and players who weren't at the club anymore, and even offering physio and advice to fans who needed it, Kev was there for whoever needed him.


Through good times and bad, he was a constant presence at the club as players, managers, management and even fans came and went. To serve a non league club for more than 30 years of a truly special level of dedication and it is terrible that it has had to end this way. Kev always wanted what was best for Slough Town, so he would want us all to push forward as one, but of course we will never forget Kev for everything he has done for the Club.


Always willing to say hello and offer a handshake even when he was busy doing his matchday jobs, Kev was an absolute gentleman. He was an ultimately positive man, who got on with the job even after his diagnosis and continued to work with STFC for as long as he was able - even in his final months he had been training one of the next generation of physiotherapists which is a glowing reference of the kind of man he was.


Our thoughts are with Kev's family and friends at this difficult time. Hopefully the huge number of tributes that can be found all over social media can be of some comfort, showing just how much love there was for Kev at STFC and across the football world.


So we say, from all of us involved with the Trust, thank you Super Kev, and rest in peace.

As part of it's commitment to getting involved with the local sporting community in Slough, we're pleased to work with Trust members Active Slough to pass on the details of the Man v Fat programme that is coming to Arbour Park in February.

The aim of the programme is to promote weight loss through football in the community for men who are looking to shed some weight by combining weight loss goals off the pitch and goals on the pitch, with games being played at the home of Slough Town FC on a top of the line pitch.

You don't need to be part of a team to get involved, and if you are not fit enough to play you can join one of their teams as a non-playing member to get the weight loss support.


The details are as follows:

- 15 week weight loss and football programme starting 5th February

- Mondays at Arbour Park 7-9pm

- FREE (£10 deposit, that’s returnable after completion)

- Register online before the 29th January – Registration session

- 6 a side matches

- Weekly weigh in – you get goals before the match as a result for losing weight

Slough Town Supporters Trust pleased to announce that, following discussions with Slough Town Juniors, we have reached agreement to provide funding for the junior teams to play at Arbour Park through the winter.

A cheque presentation will be made, most likely ahead of the Dorchester game, to the Junior team management to give the children's training sessions a boost in the cold and wet weather.

The Trust will be donating around £1200 to cover the cost of hiring Arbour Park for around 3 months, giving the 3 boys teams, girls training and PALS teams the opportunity to play on the top of the line 3G pitch at a time when their usual grass pitches are difficult to play on.

We have a long history of supporting the Club's junior teams, most recently covering the cost of a girls football coach through the summer, and we're delighted to be able to help out again.
