Slough Town Supporters Trust is pleased to be backing the Slough Town FC #OneSlough campaign to reach out into our diverse community, which has been led by Club Community Engagement Manager Mark Bailey.

The Trust has been in discussions with the Club for the last few months about this, having originally suggested the idea to appeal to a wider range of people across the town including reaching out in different languages and to the LGBTQ+ community.

As part of this, the Trust is pleased to have co-signed the Kick It Out Equality Charter which pledges that both Club and Trust will work for equality , diversity and inclusion. A copy of this can be found using the link on our website home page. It has been signed by Mark Bailey and interim Trust chairman Dan Brench.

We hope that this initiative will help to encourage more people from across our amazing town to attend Slough Town matches in the future, knowing that they are in a safe, fun place with a community atmosphere. We ask that all supporters do their bit by distributing posters linked to the campaign and acting within the responsibilities of the charter by considering their use of language.

Together we can build a stronger, more community focused club that is a representative of the town of Slough as a whole.

Slough Town Supporters Trust are delighted to have presented two more sets of Trust-sponsored kit to local schools. This time the schools involved were Ryvers School and Priory School, with both sets presented at the U11s Cup tournament on Thursday.

The Trust has presented around 14 schools kits in recent years, and are always on the lookout for more kit donations as we look to support local football. We hope that the kits will be well used and that the children enjoy using them.

The Ryvers kit was worn by the girls team in the tournament, while the winning Priory girls team showed off their new kit after the tournament.

The National League Trust Under 11s Cup returned to Arbour Park on Thursday as 10 schools competed for the opportunity to represent Slough Town FC in the regional round in early 2020.


The tournament, split into two for girls and boys/mixed teams, was organised by Club Secretary Kay Lathey with support from the Slough Town Supporters Trust and E Sargeant and Son funeral directors. In the 2018 tournament, Lynch Hill and Priory Schools went on to the regional round at Sutton United.


This year saw the return of Claycots, Ryvers, Lynch Hill, Langley Hall, Priory and Godolphin, while Marish, Willow, St Anthony’s and Our Lady of Peace made their debuts. All of the schools entered the boys/mixed tournament, while Claycots, Ryvers, Lynch Hill, Priory, Godolphin and Our Lady of Peace entered the girls tournament. The tournaments were played in group format of 12 minute games, with two 5 team groups for the boys/mixed and a single 6 team girls group. The top two girls teams would advance to the final, with the top team in each of the boys/mixed group reaching the final.


The boys/mixed groups produced 40 goals in the 20 games while the girls group had 42 in 16 games, which was less than last year but there was high quality football, particularly the goalkeeping, on show all afternoon. In boys/mixed group 1, Ryvers School won all 4 of their games to move into the final, while in group 2, Langley Hall took advantage of Priory’s last game defeat to advance to the final on goal difference. In the girls group, it was an afternoon of dominance for both Lynch Hill and Priory, who both won 4 and drew 1 (against each other) to finish first and second respectively with 8 points between them and third place. This would mean a repeat of last year’s girls final, while Langley Hall took their place for the second year in a row in the boys/mixed finals. Ryvers, whose mixed team had struggled last year, had shown great improvement not just in entering two teams but also by reaching the final in the boys/mixed.


In the boys/mixed final, Langley Hall went one better than last year, winning 2-0 in the final. The final between Lynch Hill and Priory proved to be as tight as their group game, finishing 1-1 after 12 minutes. The game went down to penalties which finished 1-0 to Priory after 3 penalties each, partly in thanks to some good saves.


So it’s congratulations to Priory and Langley Hall, they will represent Slough Town FC at the regional round next year. Our thanks go to all of the students who played in this year’s tournaments, to their teachers for bringing them, and to our organisers and sponsors for making this another successful day. We hope that everyone enjoyed the event and we aim to bring it back again next year.

Ahead of this Thursday's National League Trust U11s Cup local tournament at Arbour Park, we can reveal the schools that have signed up.

We will be hosting two tournaments at the home of Slough Town on Thursday afternoon starting at around 1pm, featuring a girls tournament and a boys/mixed tournament. Our thanks go to Club secretary Kay Lathey for working so hard to organise the event, and to E Sargeant and Son who have sponsored the tournament alongside the Trust to cover the cost of the ground hire for the second year running. The Trust will be covering other costs including medals and trophies.

As was the case last year, we have 10 boys/mixed teams and 6 girls teams. The boys/mixed tournament will be split into two groups, with the winners of each group playing off in the final, while the girls teams will play in a single group with the final being played between the top two teams in the group.

Last year's champions Priory and Lynch Hill have returned for another chance at representing Slough Town FC at the regional round in the New Year, along with a combination of new and returning schools. In 2018 we had 52 goals in the girls group and 80 in the boys groups, so we're hoping to plenty of goals again this year.

We wish every team the best of luck and hope that they enjoy the experience of playing at Arbour Park.


The schools that have entered are as follows:

Claycots: girls and boys/mixed

Our Lady of Peace: girls and boys/mixed

Lynch Hill: girls and boys/mixed

Ryvers: girls and boys/mixed

Priory: girls and boys/mixed

Godolphin: girls and boys/mixed

Willow: boys/mixed

Marish: boys/mixed

St Anthony's: boys/mixed

Langley Hall: boys/mixed
