We're pleased to announce that we've made big strides towards our membership target. Following the three home friendlies, Trust membership stands at 132, including 9 new members and 16 junior members. At the same stage last year we had 108 members so this is a fantastic start to the new season.

We have committed to an initial spending plan of around £5000 for this season, so don't forget to join or re-join the Trust to help benefit both the Club and the Community, as we look to beat last year's total of 207 - a junior membership is free with every adult member.

The Slough Town Supporters Trust is pleased to announce an initial sponsorship spending plan for the season 2019-20, designed to support and promote Slough Town FC and the Trust. The plan was agreed at a board meeting at the end of May and continues our commitment to providing benefit to both STFC and the community.


The big news is that the Trust will continue to sponsor the FCVideo match filming for the 2019-20 season, at a cost of £3500, which includes us keeping our Arbour Park advertising board. This means that the Trust's name will continue to be splashed across the excellent FCVideo extended highlight packages which are made available after the league packages. We look forward to working with the Club and FCVideo once again.


Also on the media front, the Trust will continue to joint-sponsor Rebels Radio with MyFootballClub. Adrian is currently busy making arrangements for the new season and any costs for the new system, including SIM card internet costs, will be split between the Trust and MyFC.


Also agreed as part of the initial plan is two sets of school kits to be announced as they are arranged.

We will continue to use our printing machine to create the season tickets and Trust membership cards for the new season at no cost to the Club.


The plan also contained donations that have been announced previously, including a £100 donation to the Mercian Way (Slough Town Juniors) defibrilator fund and the £400 sponsorship of the Farnham Royal Cricket Club Colts team for this summer season.


This means that more than £5000 of Trust money is going to various good causes, including approximately £4400 of direct financial value to Slough Town FC. It is by no means the end of our plans and will be added to as other projects arise.

Trust membership officially re-opened on 1st July, so please get on board to support our work for STFC and the community, visit the Join page of the website for all the details.

We can announce that Trust membership for the new 2019-20 season will open on 1st July.


Following a board decision, we have decided to remove the PayPal option from our website, and from 1st July it will be replaced with bank transfers, so our bank details will be on the website Join information page from that date.


Members from last year who provided us with email addresses should have been sent a members newsletter last month which contained an updated version of the membership form. Forms can be sent in at any time (they can be downloaded from the website buttons) however we will only be able to process memberships after 1st July due to the end of the financial year on 30th June. Membership cards will be printed during pre-season once the season ticket cards have been printed.


We've already recieved 19 forms via post, including 3 new members, which is a great start towards beating last year's total of 207. The more members we have, the more we can do for the Club and the community, so please join up and encourage others to do the same.


Membership remains at £10 for adults for the season, and for each adult member signed up, you can still get a junior membership for free (additional juniors £5).

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.
