Following the first ever National League Under 11s Cup tournament held at Arbour Park in November, our two winning teams will move on to the regional finals next week.

The next round of the tournament for U11s schools tournament, created by the National League Trust, is being held at Gander Green Lane, the home of Sutton United, on Thursday 14th February. featuring teams representing a variety of National League clubs from across the region.

Our two teams, the boys/mixed team from Lynch Hill and the girls from Priory, will head to Sutton after coming through the first round which was hosted by the Trust on November 1st. The tournament was funded by money from Dave Carpenter's estate and E Sargeant & Son, with goals galore from the 6 girls teams and the 10 boys/mixed teams that entered.

Priory and Lynch Hill will wear the colours of Slough Town at the event, and we'll keep you updated with their progress. Good luck to both teams!

On Wednesday, three members of the Trust board visited the Pit Stop Project on the Trading Estate. Pit Stop has been chosen as this year's Sponsored Walk charity and we wanted to get to know the project and the people.

Dan, Mike and Ollie visited the site to see the facilities that are provided for young people across a large area. Hidden away in the Trading Estate is a large workshop divided into work areas for construction and car mechanics, as well as some other teaching rooms. They also visited the Gateway post-16 site at the end of the High Street which is linked to the Pit Stop Project.

They presented a Slough Town shirt to the team at Pit Stop which will be framed and put on their wall. The staff members gave a tour of the facility with a really interesting insight into how it is run and the stories behind some of the learners that pass through the project.

We'd like to thank the staff at both Pit Stop and Gateway for their time and for their enthusiasm in what we're trying to do - a few have said they will join us on the walk too. They have also invited us to join their annual awards ceremony in the summer which is a really nice gesture. There is certainly a great determination from the staff to provide real opportunities for some of the area's most difficult learners.

Keep an eye on our social media where a few photos will appear soon.

Don't forget to get signed up for the walk either by dropping us an email or by visiting the tables by turnstile 4 on a home matchday. We have registration and sponsor forms at every game home and away, just speak to Alan Harding or Dan Brench. All the details are on our website Sponsored Walk page.

Slough Town Supporters Trust is pleased to confirm the details for this year’s Sponsored Walk.


After the success of last year’s walk along the provisional Slough Half Marathon route, which raised £1650 split between the Trust and Berkshire Vision, we’ve come up with our next walking challenge which returns to the origins of the walk.


This year the walk will go back to an away game walk, but don’t worry, it’s not Truro! The walk will take place on Saturday 23rd March as we walk from Arbour Park to our away game at Woking. The full logistics of the day will be published later, however an approximate start time of 7am for the 17 mile journey has been suggested.


The charity that has been selected this year is the Slough PitStop Project which is linked to Haybrook College, a referral unit which has several sites across Slough. PitStop is an educational charity based in Slough Trading Estate which uses a vocational curriculum for students from a range of schools and referral units across the town and the local area. They offer practical courses in motor mechanics, construction and catering, allowing students to gain industry recognised qualifications and link with the Gateway post-16 provision to offer learners qualifications up to GCSE level.


PitStop works with the most complex and challenging young people in the town, so they have been selected as our charity of choice, with the funds raised being split between the Trust and PitStop, who will use it to replace some of their motor mechanics workshop such as trolley jacks, tools and other equipment.


We will look to arrange a visit to the project in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, to find out more about PitStop, see their website http://haybrookcollege.co.uk/pitstop-2/


Recruitment for the walk starts now. You can sign up either by visiting the Trust gazebo by turnstile 4 on home matchdays, by speaking to Alan Harding or Dan Brench, or by contacting us by email on trust@sloughtownsupporterstrust.co.uk. The more walkers we have, the more money we can raise, so get signed up and get ready to walk to Woking!

Slough Town Supporters Trust are delighted to announce that we have sponsored another set of kit for a local school.


As revealed at yesterday's match against Chelmsford at Arbour Park, Claycots School - which has two sites in Britwell and at the old Town Hall site - are the latest school to receive a set of Trust-sponsored kit. Nine children and three teachers from Claycots joined us for the match, with the children getting to play on the pitch and walk out with the players.


The donation is the latest in a series which are part of our commitment to promote Slough Town FC in the local community.

2018 has been another successful year for the Slough Town Supporters Trust. We’ve picked out some of the highlights from the last year to review what we have done and to give anyone who doesn’t know an idea of what we do.


There has however been some sadness as we have said goodbye to devoted supporters and club legends. We work hard to continue what these people did for the Club and dedicate what we do to all those who work for and support STFC.


We finished the 2017-18 season with 195 members and we have gone on to beat that once again, reaching 204 members over the festive period – giving us 7 straight years of growth. Thank you to all those who signed up to be members once again and to those who have joined for the first time. Our free junior membership offer still stands as we look to get the next generation behind the work of the Trust.


The support for the supporters’ coaches continues to go from strength to strength, with our new partnership with Apple coaches proving very successful. After running coaches to every game in a long run of midweek away games at the end of last season, three coaches ran to the playoff final at Kings Lynn. We also ran full coaches to Welling and Eastbourne and two coaches to the FA Cup game at Sutton, while the numbers on other coaches remain high, allowing us to keep the fares down. Thanks to all who use the coaches.


We always have more projects lined up and will bring you more news on these, as well as the follow up from other projects, as we get the details sorted.


Happy New Year to all of our members and everyone associated with STFC!


Here are some of the highlights:

- We agreed a donation package to support the STFC Juniors, allowing them to train through the winter on the 3G at Arbour Park, at a cost of around £1200

- We ran a coach to the funeral of ‘Super Kev’ to allow supporters to attend

- A sponsored set of kit was donated to St Mary’s School, Farnham Common

- We’ve offered new member discounts at the Wheatsheaf, Moon and Spoon and Potters Arms

- The Trust sponsored the Farnham Royal Cricket Club colts team for their summer season

- Club and Trust ran promotion events at Britwell Summer Celebration, Cippenham Carnival and Slough PlayDay in the summer

- The Sponsored Walk took in the provisional route of the Slough Half Marathon, raising £1650 split between the Trust and Berkshire Vision

- A team of Trust members took part in the 2018 Slough Barrell Roll, helping towards the final total of £1150 raised for local charity Destiny Support

- We agreed to sponsor the match filming for the Club’s first season in the National League South at a cost of £3000

- The Trust received £5000 from the estate of Dave Carpenter, some of which has been used to fund our first ever entries into the National League Trust U11s Cup, as well as a new gazebo and banners for use at Arbour Park and other events – we’ll keep you updated with any further uses

- In the National League Trust U11s Cup, which took place at Arbour Park in November, teams from Lynch Hill and Priory Schools emerged as our representatives after a busy afternoon of football, with 6 girls teams and 10 boys/mixed teams taking part. We’ll follow them to the next round in the new year.

We're pleased to confirm that the Trust has used some more of the money left to us by Dave Carpenter to update the matchday and community event experience.

We have purchased a second gazebo for use on matchdays, to go with the one already used by turnstile 4, for sales of programmes or other activities at Arbour Park. It can also be used at any community events where needed, which Dave was a great supporter of in the past.

To go with these, we've purchased new banners featuring the Trust name and 'Slough Town FC in the Community', while one of the sets will also have Dave's name on as sponsor. We've also renewed the ones on the other gazebo too. Photos of some of the banners can be seen on social media.

Our thanks once again go to Dave's family for the gesture. Further updates on how the money is being used will follow.
