November 2015 Newsletter


First of all, I must wholeheartedly apologise for the lack of contact in recent months. Our communications with you need to be regular and informative, and we have been failing on that for a while now, owing to personal circumstances for the TrustSTFC board members involved, and also for technical reasons.

We recognised the issue a while back and have been working to come up with a new and improved solution. After much effort, we are finally trialling a new member database and newsletter solution that saves us money and hopefully allows us to communicate with you more effectively (we want ALL of our funds to go towards Swindon Town supporter causes). Assuming you’ve received this, we are part way there already!

Onto football matters, and it’s obviously been a tough season so far on the pitch. Last night’s result against Walsall was absolutely vital, and hopefully goes some way to showing that we have turned the corner under Martin Ling.

It was not a great performance by any means, but Walsall looked a good side, and somehow we got the win!

If you want to see the highlights from the game, click here.

The whole season has raised questions about the current approach, but it’s probably a little early to start panicking. We’re approaching the vital part of the season, so we’ll have a better feel for how things are going after the Christmas and New Year period.

Regarding the Trust itself, we have been publicly quiet for some time but you can hopefully look forward to seeing an increased presence in the Media, after we appointed former Swindon Advertiser and Total Sport journalist Sam Morshead to the Trust Board last month.

We still have our regular “Trust Matters” column in the Swindon Advertiser on a fortnightly basis, and this is also reproduced with additional content in the Match Day programme for each home game.

In case you’ve missed any of these, I will be forwarding you some links over the course of the next week as part of an initial TrustSTFC recap.

Feel free to get in touch using any of the contact details below, or just simply reply to this email.
