The Trusts current balance of £18,645.68
includes 1,115 received in membership renewals and donations since the start of

outgoings so far of 1,142.24.
Renewals have been steady, with membership currently
The next meeting of the Football Foundation
is due to take place in October, which will consider the clubs application for
funding towards the project. The Trust hopes to hear from the club shortly
after the meeting has taken place.
The Race Night will take place after the
Cambridge United match on 1 October, with the first race at 6.30pm to
accommodate the players. Tony Adams will be asked to host the event, with race
sponsors, jockeys and horses still needed. Flyers will be produced and handed
out at the three home matches before the event and there will be a push for
sponsors in the bar before each game.
A large number of former Football League
players have now paid for their tickets, but the Trust is still waiting on many
Non-League players who have confirmed they will attend but not yet paid.
Players will be able to pay on the day, as will fans, who can buy tickets for
£20. The target of 280 is unlikely to be reached and a reduction will be
discussed with the Prince of Wales. The reunion will be pushed in the next few
weeks leading up to the event. The Trust hopes to raise funds on the day by
arranging photographs of the former teams and a raffle. Players will start
arriving from 5.30pm and Trust board members will be available to help on the
The Trust has received commission through
three recent winners on the clubs Goalden Lottery. Members will be reminded
that entering the lottery through the Trust is a way to support both the Trust
and the club.
Members will be able to travel to the match
at Mansfield Town on 15 October for the special offer price of £12. (Under 16s
accompanied by an adult member £6) Non-members will remain at £23. It was
decided against arranging a special offer including the match at Newport County
due to the cost and likely take up.
There were sufficient numbers to run the
coach to Bath City last week, but not for the match at Forest Green Rovers on
Saturday. From now on, members under the age of 16 will be able to travel on
the coach for a third of the published price if accompanied by an adult member.
Alan S has set up a facebook account for the
Trust. News will continue to be published on the Trust website.
