On Tuesday evening a Slough Town Supporters team entered a Slough Council 5 a side tournament at Arbour Park, and we’re delighted to say that they won!


Placed in group B, the team played 3 group games, losing the first two games 1-0 (v Man v Fat B) and 2-0 (v Aik Saath) respectively, before winning the third game 2-1 over a SBC team. As a result of the 5th team in the group not turning up, the team progressed to the quarter finals in 4th place.


Coming up against a strong looking Active Slough team who had done well in the other group, featuring former Rebels player Gav James, the STST team raced into a shock 2-0 lead before two goals from Gav (including lobbing the out of position keeper from his own half) levelled it up. A late Active Slough goal was ruled out, having been deemed to have been taken inside the keeper area, meaning sudden death penalties decided it and sent the STST team through to the semi-final.


The team progressed past the YOT team with a 2-0 win in the semi-final, setting up a match against a very talented Aik Saath team who had turned them over in the group stage. With just 30seconds of the 8-minute match left, Aik Saath scored, beating the keeper at the near post with a low powerful shot. While they celebrated the keeper took a kickoff from his area, lifting it into the air and into the net at the other end of the pitch. After much deliberation from those running the event and the teams, it was awarded as a late equaliser. Two minutes of further time could not separate the teams, so it was sudden death penalties. It was the STST keeper who proved to be the hero once again as he saved the first effort and the STST penalty was scored by to hand them the trophy.


Our thanks to go the players who stepped up to play for the STST team, to all of those who played in the other teams, and to all of those who put a lot of effort into organising the event.


Congratulations to the winning STST team! The trophy is sitting in the bar next to the Southern Premier Playoff trophy.

Everyone at Slough Town Supporters Trust is devastated to hear about the passing of John Tebbit this week. John was an absolute gentleman who was willing to chat to anyone, very well liked by all who knew him and always ready with a story or a stat from the colourful history of the Club.

John was a familiar face around Slough Town FC through decades of good times and bad, and the Trust through his various contributions to the Club including the programme, and will be sorely missed by everyone.

Our condolences go to John's family and friends at this difficult time.

Slough Town FC and the Slough Town Supporters Trust are pleased to announce that we will be attending some local events this summer to promote the Club ahead of the 2018-19 season in the National League South.


The events are:

Saturday 23rd June: Britwell Summer Celebration, Britwell Parish Community Centre, 12-4pm (stall set up from 10am)

Saturday 7th July: Cippenham Carnival, Mercian Way Recreation Ground, 12-5pm (stall setup in the morning)

Wednesday 1st August: Slough PlayDay, Salt Hill Park, 12-4pm (stall setup from 9-10.45am)


As with all community promotion events, we urgently require volunteers to run the stalls (which will be information stalls for selling season tickets, Trust membership etc as well as advertise fixtures, with a possible tombola) at the events, and also to help us move items around before and after the events to set up the stalls. Even if you can't help for the whole event, any time that can be offered would be much appreciated.


If you can help us out on these days, please get in touch by email as soon as possible on trust@sloughtownsupporterstrust.co.uk, or get in touch via Facebook or Twitter.


Your Club needs you ahead of the new National South season, please do not assume that the same volunteers will take it on, new volunteers are always needed. Don't forget there's also volunteering opportunities at Arbour Park on matchdays.

It's been all over the news and all over your emails, but even the Trust can't get away from the new data protection rules.


We've updated our privacy practices this summer with the new rules coming in. 2017-18 Trust members have been sent a copy of our membership form for next season which also includes the new form for opting in to Trust communications.

You can also find the new form on our website header and the Join page, so if you wish to join the Trust for next season it's already in place. Membership officially opens at the start of July so memberships will not be cleared until then due to the end of our financial year being at the end of June. If you join via PayPal you will be sent a copy of the form so you can fill in the privacy section.

Opting in to Trust communications will allow us to pass on Trust news to our members directly, where we are looking into an occasional newsletter option to keep all of our members up to date, the first of which has been sent to members this month.


The free child when signed up with an adult offer will remain for 2018-19. Next year we're hoping to beat last years total of 195 so please encourage everyone you know to join the Trust so we can do our best to support both Club and community.

The Slough Town Supporters Trust is pleased to announce a sponsorship package with Farnham Royal Cricket Club for the forthcoming cricket season.


FRCC are prominent supporters of Slough Town FC including taking out a full page programme advert, with many of their members being season ticket holders, Trust members and travellers on the supporters coaches.

In return for their generosity, the Trust donated £400 to sponsor the FRCC colts junior team, which was donated at a presentation at half time of the playoff semi final against Kettering. In sponsoring the club, the Trust will have it's own sign on display at the ground, the scorebooks will have the Trust name on and also the stumps used by the club this season will all be painted in amber and blue. There is also a suggestion in the pipeline to invite the families of their junior teams to Arbour Park later this year too, though the details are to be confirmed.


We have also been given 2 sponsored matches as part of the deal, on the following dates:

Saturday 2nd June - 1st XI match v Wooburn Narkovians (1pm start)

Saturday 30th June - 1st XI match v Harefield 2nd XI (1pm start)

A licenced bar and meals will be available during the day, with the matches being played at FRCC's ground on Church Road, Farnham Royal. Any Trust member or STFC supporter is welcome to attend.


We look forward to working with FRCC through this summer and would like to thank them for their on-going support of STFC and the Trust.

Last Saturday saw the end of season awards being handed out on the pitch after the final home match of the season.


Following a vote by supporters at the previous home match, George Wells picked up the Supporters' Player of the Season award after getting 32% of the 204 votes cast. Jack Turner just edged out Lee Togwell for 2nd place by just a couple of votes with around 17% and 16% of the vote respectively.


Volunteer Barry Hiron picked up the Chris Sliski Clubperson of the Year award to honour all of the hard work that he puts into matchdays at Arbour Park. Barry is always one of the first to arrive and undertakes a number of tasks at Arbour Park including spending a lot of time wiping down the chairs in both stands and putting the cones out on Stoke Road, and also spends time at half time and after the game helping to clear up. We would like to thank Barry for his commitment to the Club.


Congratulations to George and Barry on picking up their awards.


Thank you also to the 195 members who joined the Trust this season. Hopefully next season we can get past 200 when we reopen the membership in July for the new season. The more members we have, the more we can do for the Club and the community.

With coach numbers remaining high this year we are proud to have offered so many fans the chance to watch the Rebels away from home, and we were amazed that the great uptake of coaches continued through the long run of away matches at the end of the season. With around 130 names on the list for Monday we will be backing the Club all the way in the final.


The Trust has donated considerable sums of money to the Club this year as sponsorship, alongside other Trust incentives such as buying a printing machine so we can print the season tickets and membership cards in house, contributing towards the concrete path between St Joseph's School and Arbour Park, and sponsoring matches including the playoff semi final on Wednesday. We have also had another year of successful fundraising through the Christmas draw and the Sponsored Walk.


As it is the end of the season, we would also like to thank all of those who give up their time on matchdays and away from Arbour Park to volunteer for the Club and Trust. There's huge amounts of work that go into running the Club and the Trust so if you can volunteer to help on a matchday or in any other kind of role on other times, please get in touch with us or the Club.

Regardless of what happens on Monday we hope you will agree that it has been a memorable season and thank you to the players and management for making that happen.

A further update on the coach spaces for the playoff final:


We have booked 3 coaches (2 53 seaters and a 49 seater) to travel to Kings Lynn for the playoff final on Monday. As of 9.30pm on Thursday 3rd May we have 110 booked, with 45 spaces.

The deadline for bookings remains at midday on Friday 4th May, after this time we cannot guarantee a seat as we will not be able to add any further coaches if needed after this time. Anyone who wishes to book a seat must book in advance by contacting Alan Harding or Mike Lightfoot.


Parking will be in St Joseph's School as normal, however the coaches will leave from Arbour Park. Please do not park at Arbour Park.

By Slough Town Supporters Trust, May 3 2018 10:12AM

We are pleased to confirm details for the coach travel to the playoff final at Kings Lynn.


The coaches will leave at 10.30am, with cars to be parked at St Joseph's School as normal. The adult member fare is £20.


Following the Kettering game, we have around 80 names on the list (update: by lunchtime Thursday it's around 100 booked). If you have not got your name down, you must get in touch with Mike Lightfoot or Alan Harding no later than midday on Friday 4th May. using the contact details on our website. After this time we cannot guarantee a space on the coach for anyone who hasn't booked - this is because the coaches must be booked with the company by the end of Friday afternoon.


Please be aware that we cannot guarantee toilets on coaches but suitable stops will be made, and it is illegal to drink alcohol on football coaches.


So join us to get behind the team in what will be a massive game for the Club.


Please note that for anyone hoping to travel by train, there are no train services between Maidenhead and Hayes and Harlington on Bank Holiday Monday (and none between Maidenhead and London Paddington on Sunday if you're planning to travel early), check your train travel carefully before booking.
