Player of the month

Congratulations go to Jordan Connerton, help who was voted February’s player of the month. He received his award in the Social Club after the Boston United match.

Membership draw winners

Each month, and a Trust member wins two free passes to the hospitality lounge at Victory Park. In a draw made after the last Trust meeting, the winner for February was Paula Booth.

We also offer the chance for a junior member to win a matchday mascot package, where they can meet the team and run out onto the pitch with them. The lucky winner in February was Alex Couseins.

Fundraising update

The race night at the start of March raised almost £800, thanks to the hard work of our events organiser James Wilson, the volunteers on the night and of course all those who came along and enjoyed a great night out.

Three Trust members will be accompanying Matt Parry of Twincess on a sponsored ride to the FC United away match on Easter Saturday. The ride is to raise awareness of World Down Syndrome Day, and funds raised will go into our Fan Ownership Fund.

World Down Syndrome Day takes place on 21st March 2016. The date for WDSD, being the 21st day of the 3rd month, was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down syndrome.

However, one member is going way beyond the call of duty and is going to RUN all the way. That isn’t a misprint: Ian Hamer is proposing to run what amounts to a full marathon and arrive at the same time as the riders. And if that isn’t worth sponsoring then I don’t know what is.

Please consider sponsoring us as we aim to beat the target of raising £10000 for the season. We’re almost there – the Fan Ownership Fund currently stands at £8588, so with one last push we could make it all the way to our target. You can find out more at

Annual General Meeting

Our AGM is on Wednesday May 4th in the Social Club. By now, all members will have received details of how they can stand for election to the board. Each year, a third of the board stands down to give new people a chance to get involved. It’s healthy for the Trust to have a regular influx of new ideas and enthusiasm. If you’re a member, please consider standing. And if you’re not, please consider joining, then you can stand if you like!
